amc dish network strike deal DISH Network and AMC strike multi year dealO frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!

AMC is coming back to DISH Network, gang. If you’re like us and have DISH Network, this is wonderful news indeed. DISH says in an email:

DISH is pleased to announce that we have reached a multi-year agreement with AMC Networks, which has restored AMC on channel 131.

All customers will be able to enjoy AMC in free preview on channel 131, and for fans of “The Walking Dead,” the first episode of the season will be available on-demand for a limited time*. Please check your channel guide for a complete listing.

We appreciate your patience during this time

*Access On-Demand by selecting the Menu button on your DISH remote. Must be connected to broadband internet.

Only two “Walking Dead” episodes have aired so far, so if you can get the first one of Season 3 watched, the second one should be rerun at various times throughout the week prior to Sunday, Oct. 28. Hopefully AMC will run this summer’s “Breaking Bad” Season 5 that we all missed — perhaps they can just run them late at night and we can all DVR them.
