AMC’s battle with Dish continues, but at least Breaking Bad fans won’t have to suffer: The basic cable net will offer a special live stream of the drama’s season 5 premiere to Dish subscribers on its website July 15.
Starting tomorrow at 3 p.m. ET, Dish subs can register for access at www.amctv.com/breakingbad4dish. “Every cable, phone and satellite company other than Dish carries AMC and its popular programming, including Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead and Mad Men in their basic package,” the network said in a statement. “AMC wants its loyal Dish viewers to experience the excitement of the Breaking Bad premiere at the same time as their friends and neighbors and we want to give Dish customers an extra week to switch providers so they can enjoy the rest of the season.”
