AMC+ launches in Australia

AMC Networks has launched its streaming bundle AMC+ in Australia, allowing viewers to access a raft of shows from the US operator and its sibling streamers Acorn TV and Shudder.

The service, which became available via YouTube in the US earlier this year, will allow Aussie subscribers to watch shows including revenge thriller The Beast Must Die, animated comedy Ultra City Smiths and Italian dystopian drama Anna, which AMC acquired in August.

Australian vampire thriller Firebite is also available, alongside Acorn TV shows such as Midsomer Murders, Dalgliesh and Poirot, and Shudder series including Creepshow and Slasher: Flesh and Blood.

AMC+ is available via Apple TV and Amazon’s Prime Video Channels, costing $8.99 ($12) a month.

Courtney Thomasma, GM at AMC+, said the bundle would offer Australian audiences “thrilling, thought-provoking stories and iconic characters together through one subscription.”

Last week, AMC upped original programming & studio president Dan McDermott to an expanded role covering acquisitions across the company’s services. The move followed news that AMC veterans Ed Carroll and Josh Sapan would be stepping down later this year.
