Since DISH dropped AMC, the cable network has continued to encourage people to switch from the satellite cable provider to a service that does carry their channel. The network has also made efforts to reach out to DISH subscribers by offering a streaming option for certain season premieres. They did it for Breaking Bad's Season 5 premiere and they'll be doing it for the upcoming third season premiere of The Walking Dead.
Starting today (Friday, Sept. 28), DISH subscribers can register at AMCTV.com for access to the free live stream of The Walking Dead Season 3 premiere. The episode will stream concurrently with the TV debut, which will allow DISH subscribers the opportunity to experience the first episode with everyone else. Of course, they'll have to find an alternative way to watch the episodes that follow. But it's a good gesture on the part of AMC, as well as one more step in their campaign against DISH. Speaking of which…
