Mysterious Commercials Say Verizon May Drop AMC

Something strange happened to some people watching The Walking Dead last night. They received a brief commercial message saying that Verizon may soon drop AMC in yet another cable company dispute.

There’s a website now online, keepamcnetworks.com, that is now plastered with similar messages, Verizon customers might lose AMC.

It’s strange though, the only news I can find about this online are a bunch of very confused forum posts on AMC and Verizon sites that are from people who saw the ads. And there’s no details on what exactly is going down here. Even on the “keep AMC” site, when you click on the “learn why” part at the bottom, it just redirects you to a page about “what you stand to lose,” listing AMC, Sundance, IFC and others as channels Verizon customers might lose. There’s nothing to indicate WHY this is actually happening.

And why IS this actually happening, if it is? Last time the dispute with Dish was over fees to carry the channel. Dish didn’t want to pay more because they’d pass the charge along to consumers which would upset them. AMC didn’t want to cave in because they know how in demand their channel is. Plenty of blame to go around.

But thanks to a well orchestrated PR campaign, AMC won the war. And again now, everything I read on the forums is people yelling that they’ll drop Verizon if they drop AMC. No one is really stopping to ask if AMC is starting to charge ridiculous prices for their content.

More on this as new details come to light.
