We just received official word that Sling TV is adding AMC to the $20 a month core package. No exact date has been announced for AMC to launch on Sling TV but it is expected to happen in the next few weeks. We can also confirm that Sling TV is now available to everyone in America today.

“We flipped the switch this morning opening up Sling TV to all consumers, and we’re giving them something they’ve been asking for: AMC,” said Roger Lynch, CEO of Sling TV. “Soon Sling TV will deliver hits like The Walking Dead and Mad Men with AMC included in our core package. We found a great partner in AMC Networks with a wide range of popular channels to help us quickly make that a reality.”

“AMC Networks is pleased to have reached this comprehensive new agreement which will deliver our popular and valuable entertainment and news content from our entire portfolio of networks on Sling TV,” said Bob Broussard, President of Network Sales, AMC Networks. “Sling TV is an exciting new service designed to deliver content to consumers who are outside of the traditional television eco-system. With this agreement, we are joining a number of other respected providers of sports, entertainment and news content to ensure that we are capitalizing on innovative technology and new opportunities to reach as many people as possible.”

      There should be a 3 day replay if you miss it. I would also expect some on-demand access but they have not posted full details.
