Max, the streaming service owned by Warner Bros. Discovery, formerly known as HBO Max, has announced a 60-day streaming deal with AMC that will bring AMC+ programming to the streamer.
Starting September 1, Max will launch an “AMC+ Picks on Max” branded hub on the ad-free and ad-supported tiers. The hub will feature seven AMC+ shows, including “Fear the Walking Dead” (Seasons 1-7), “Killing Eve” (Seasons 1-4), “Gangs of London” (Seasons 1-2), “Anne Rice’s Interview with the vampire”, “Dark Winds”, “A Discovery of Witches” (seasons 1 to 3) and “Ride with Norman Reedus” (seasons 1 to 5).
The titles will remain on Max for two months. Notably, subscribers on the ad-supported plan will not see any ads when watching the AMC+ series.
Like WBD’s licensing agreement with Netflix, AMC+ programming will continue to air on AMC’s streaming service. Last month, Netflix announced it would stream HBO shows like “Insecure,” “Band of Brothers,” “The Pacific,” “Six Feet Under,” and “Ballers.”
The new deal comes as WBD continues to improve and experiment with its relaunched platform. The company revealed last week that it plans to add 24/7 live news from CNN. The beta feature will launch on September 27 and will feature live content from CNN US, CNN International and original programs such as ‘CNN Newsroom with Jim Sciutto’, ‘Anderson Cooper 360’, ‘The Lead with Jake Tapper’ and more Again.
