Rogers and AMC

Apparantly, Rogers cable network is threatening to get rid of AMC. That would be incredibly stupid of them, as AMC features programs such as The Walking Dead, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Hell on Wheels among others. I don't know what the legal side of things are, but getting rid of a network featuring hit shows is just plain silly in a nutshell. If you subscribe to AMC and are with Rogers for your TV needs, call 855-KEEP-AMC (855-533-7262), contact Rogers, or go to their Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Rogers?fref=ts .

Hi, this is Mary with Rogers.

We have no intention of dropping AMC.

We're surprised and disappointed they would alarm our customers. We are in negotiations and expect a positive outcome.

Feel free to reach out to us on twitter at @RogersHelps or myself directly @RogersMary

Thanks for the clarification! I saw the news courtesy of "The Walking Dead" on facebook yesterday evening and 'countered' the news with this post, encouraging Rogers customers have an AMC subscription to inform Rogers that they would like to see the network kept.

Hi, this is Chris, and I'm a colleague of Mary's at Rogers.

We have excellent news! We've reached an agreement that ensures our customers can continue to enjoy all of the great programming in the AMC line-up. And they’ll be able to watch original AMC programs in HD format as early as end of March, as well as across multiple screens shortly after the TV debut - something we know our customers have been asking for.

We've shared more details on our Redboard blog here:
