New York, NY, July 12, 2012 – In response to DISH’s recent drop of AMC to gain leverage in an unrelated lawsuit, the network will provide DISH customers access to the highly anticipated return of the Emmy® Award-winning drama “Breaking Bad” on Sunday, July 15, at 10PM EST.

AMC stated: “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. 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.”

 

The explosive drama series that Variety calls "simply one of TV's great addictions," stars three-time Emmy® winner for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series, Bryan Cranston (Walt White) leading an Unforgettable ensemble cast including 2010 Emmy® winner for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series Aaron Paul (Jesse Pinkman), Anna Gunn (Skyler White), Dean Norris (Hank Schrader), Betsy Brandt (Marie Schrader), RJ Mitte (Walter, Jr.), Bob Odenkirk (Saul Goodman), and Jonathan Banks (Mike).

 

Created by acclaimed writer, producer, and director Vince Gilligan and produced by Sony Pictures Television, the critically acclaimed series has garnered six Primetime Emmy® Award wins and a Peabody, and been named to the American Film Institute’s (AFI) list of the “Top 10 Programs of the Year” (2008, 2010, 2011).

    Sonia & Evany no need to SHOUT!

    As a Breaking Bad fan and Dish subscriber I’m happy I’ll have a way to see it. On the other hand, AMC could be hurting themselves in their negotiations by giving away their main bargaining chip with Dish. If I can watch Breaking Bad why do I need to switch? The reality is AMC has 3 good shows and not much else to draw in viewers.

    No TVByThe#s stories on Aereo ruling or Viacom/DirecTV dispute and streaming cutoff, huh?

  • J

    No better show on TV. Cant wait.

  • Desha

    Carl, how are they hurting themselves by only offering the first episode of the season?
