The US-listed company is replacing its CEE feed in the region with country-specific services in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Slovenia.
These three services will run in those countries and throughout the region.
There is already a dedicated AMC Hungary feed in place.
AMC Networks International launched the AMC net outside the US in 2014 after rebranding the MGM channel, which it had acquired as part of a deal for Chellomedia.
The channels will have programming grids tailored to local tastes alongside Walking Dead spin-off Fear the Walking Dead. There will also be unspecified shows from AMC’s US production unit, AMC Studios.
“AMC experienced tremendous local viewership growth in Hungary after the launch of our dedicated local feed,” said Levente B. Málnay, CEO of AMC Networks International – central Europe.
“We believe that launching dedicated AMC feeds in other central European countries will provide even stronger connections to local audiences and will yield more outstanding results.”
