    Also, starting weekend July 7 / 8 they are showing ALL 5 seasons of Breaking Bad in their entirety.

    I think they also advertised doing the same thing with TWD over a weekend including the first episode done in B&W.

    I saw that advertised but they are saying the end of June is it. I almost switched to Direct when they were going to drop FX, I guess I should have.

    I dropped them after TWD's last episode and was going to start it back up in time for football and TWD.

    If they drop AMC, I will definitely go with someone else...

    Bastards better not.

    I give about half a crap about Walking Dead.
    The real loss would be Breaking Bad.

    I am guessing they will make the customers sweat it up til the last second and end up keeping it.

    It's all a bluff to make subscribers ultimately pay more.

    These companies do this as a negotiating ploy. Just wait until the time limit is up and they will end up reaching an agreement.

    I just dropped part of my programming to save money but kept the package with AMC for shows like the Walking dead.

    DirectTV has commercials on AMC saying they are dropping it. I have never seen any of the referenced series, though, and am not big on movies being interrupted with commercials. I am indifferent.

    Both Direct and Dish just went through this a year or two ago and I think AMC was part of it then.
