Dish may have dropped AMC, but Breaking Bad fans will have at least a little longer to decide whether to move to another cable provider as AMC has announced that it will be streaming the upcoming season premiere of the show. The first episode of the fifth season will be available on AMCtv.com at the same time it airs on television, because "AMC wants its loyal Dish viewers to experience the excitement of the Breaking Bad premiere at the same time as their friends and neighbours," the network says.
The stream will only be available to Dish customers, and you can register to watch it here. "We want to give Dish customers an extra week to switch providers so they can enjoy the rest of the season," AMC explained. Dish, meanwhile, is offering its own incentives to keep customers who are unhappy with the loss of AMC. Breaking Bad's season premiere will be airing on July 15th at 10PM EST.
