AMC Networks and VIZIO expand partnership

AMC Networks has expanded their multi-year agreement VZIO to deliver a range of premium programming to VIZIO Smart TVs, with the addition of the AMC+ app, nine free streaming channels and over 150 on-demand feature films.

Among the new streaming channels are Portlandia, MSG Sports Zone, AMC en Espanol, Allblk Gems and Overtime. More than 150 AMC on demand feature films will also be available on VIZIO’s free streaming service, WatchFree+.

VIZIO users who subscribe to the AMC+ premium subscription service will have access to a slate of titles, including Gangs of London, Happy Valley Lucky Hank, Interview with the Vampire and series from The Walking Dead Universe.

“AMC and VIZIO have been working together for several years to bring audiences the best in entertainment. The expansion of our partnership is based on user engagement with existing FAST and AVOD AMC programming as well as viewer response to the recent addition of AMC+ to our premium app library,” said Katherine Pond, group vice president, platform content and partnerships at VIZIO.

Kim Kelleher, chief commercial officer of AMC Networks added, “As we continue to build a new programming universe and franchise around the iconic works of Anne Rice, and bring exciting new stories from the world of The Walking Dead and other new original series to millions of passionate fans, we value our partnership with VIZIO to connect our high-quality and popular original programming with viewers as part of our robust and growing distribution ecosystem.”
