AMC Networks has launched its streaming platform AMC+ in Australia on Apple TV channels on the Apple TV app and on Amazon’s Prime Video Channels for $8.99 per month. This monthly price will allow subscribers to access a raft of shows from the US operator and its sibling streamers, Acorn TV and Shudder.
AMC+ in Australia features AMC originals such as revenge thriller “The Beast Must Die”; stop-motion animated comedy “Ultra City Smiths”; upcoming dystopian drama “Anna”; and forthcoming Australian vampire thriller “Firebite”; alongside Acorn TV shows such as “Midsomer Murders,” “Dalgliesh” and “Poirot”; and Shudder series including “Creepshow” and “Slasher: Flesh and Blood”.
Beginning today, eligible Prime members can sign up for a seven-day free trial via Prime Video Channels and will be able to watch AMC+ on all compatible Prime Video devices. Meanwhile, subscribers through Apple TV channels can watch AMC+ online or enjoy offline downloads of their favourite shows and films on the Apple TV app. Furthermore, through Family Sharing, up to six family members can share subscriptions to Apple TV channels using just their Apple ID and password.
“AMC+ offers viewers thousands of hours of acclaimed and award-winning series, including our signature dramas, wildly original comedies, and compelling true crime series, along with an exciting collection of new and independent films. With exclusive AMC+ Originals like ‘The Beast Must Die,’ ‘Ultra City Smiths,’ ‘Firebite,’ and ‘Anna,’ along with access to the incredible line-ups from Shudder and Acorn TV, the bundle brings thrilling, thought-provoking stories and iconic characters together through one subscription.
