Much to the delight of non-Dish subscribers whose Dish subscribing friends have made a habit of coming over to watch all the AMC shows they're missing out on (sometimes you just want to watch Mad Men in silence, people!) the network is, once again, offering a live stream option.
The network announced today that — in response to the ongoing dispute with Dish for pulling the channel and rendering its shows unavailable for fans — they will make the highly anticipated Season 3 premiere of The Walking Dead
(even annoyed Season 2 skeptics have to admit the new season
looks pretty awesome) available for live stream online, which they can register for here
The episode and live stream will air on Sunday, October 14 at 9 PM, but as AMC (who provided a similar service for dismayed fans during the Season 5 premiere of Breaking Bad
) bluntly worded it in a release, "Although The Walking Dead
is the #1 basic cable scripted drama for Dish customers, Dish has stated it has no plans to bring back AMC. Dish customers who want to watch the entire season at the same time as the rest of the country should switch television providers now…time is running out.”
Tell that to Sophia, Dale, and Shane.
