As previously reported, AMC and Dish Network have finally settled litigation, and reached a deal to get the channel back on Dish for its many customers. Since the satellite provider lost the channel, there have been numerous angry customers, and the whole thing undoubtedly caused many to leave the service.
Fans of shows like The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, etc., who stuck around, can breathe a sigh of relief. The Walking Dead, of course, just launched its third season this month, and the deal was done in time for Dish to get the second episode, which premiered on Sunday night. AMC had offered the first episode to Dish customers online, free of charge.
Figuring out where and/or how to watch The Walking Dead will no longer be an issue for Dish customers, as the companies have agreed to a long-term deal.
You can feel the excitement radiating from Twitter:
I guess AMC and @Dish settled their differences so hopefully when I go home for lunch I'll have a new Walking Dead episode to watch!
Our long national nightmare is over. "Walking Dead" is now available again on Dish Network.
I might have to get dish just so I can watch the walking dead.
Dish Network and AMC finally made up. The make up sex is coming in the form of more episodes of The Walking Dead.
Did I just see that the walking dead is back for dish customers??? Omfg....
AMC is back on Dish Network! I get Walking Dead back, yes!
Of course, some are still bitter:
