No 'Mad Men'? Dish Network Set To Drop AMC
Satellite TV operator Dish Network is dropping AMC Networks,Inc., whose channels include AMC, IFC and Sundance.
Each entity claims differing reasons for Dish's actions. Dish says it's "because AMC is demanding a 'high renewal cost when compared to their low viewership,'" writes Alex Sherman. AMC claims the move is "a response to a court ruling last month that denied the satellite-TV company the right to appeal an outstanding lawsuit," reports Sherman.
All we know is, if we were Dish subscribers, we'd be suffering from Don Draper withdrawal right about now.
