Announced today, VIZIO will have an expanded partnership with AMC Networks, bringing even more of the company’s broad range of premium programming to VIZIO Smart TVs. This partner includes the addition of the AMC+ app, which features nine free streaming channels and 159 on-demand feature films available on VIZIO’s free streaming service, WatchFree+.
Katherine Pond, Group Vice President at VIZIO says: “AMC and VIZIO have been working together for several years to bring audiences the best in entertainment. The expansion of our partnership is based on user engagement with existing AMC programming across (free ad-supported streaming services) and (advertising-based video on-demand) programming as well as viewer response to the recent addition of AMC+ to our premium app library.”
VIZIO users can easily subscribe AMC+ straight from the VIZIO home screen, in the coming months you’ll be able to sign up using your VIZIO account, a feature that makes it easier to manage subscriptions and even potentially redeem special offers.
“This is an exciting expansion of our relationship with VIZIO, which will make even more of our acclaimed and popular programming available to VIZIO audiences including, for the first time, the addition of nine of our curated (free ad-supported streaming services) channels,” Kim Kelleher states, chief commercial officer of AMC Networks. “As we continue to build a new programming universe and franchise around the iconic works of Anne Rice, and bring exciting new stories from the world of The Walking Dead and other new original series to millions of passionate fans, we value our partnership with VIZIO to connect our high-quality and popular original programming with viewers as part of our robust and growing distribution ecosystem.”
This exciting multi-year agreement will not only help AMC+ grow, but it will also help VIZIO’s WatchFree+ build on the already extensive library of content they have. This partnership is a wonderful opportunity for both streaming platforms and is a step in the right direction towards the future of streaming.
