AMC has some of the grittiest and most realistic shows on its networks, packed with high-octane action and nailbiting drama that are perfect for late-night (and daytime) binges. Regardless of the streaming service or TV bundles that one has, being able to access AMC networks and all their shows is a must for anyone who’s ever seen any of the genre-defining shows that the network has produced.
AMC Premiere is already one of the most subscribed network bundles, but a new premium streaming bundle released last year, bringing more new content to your TV (and mobile) screens than ever before. We’re talking about the much-touted AMC Plus, and yes – it is available on DirecTV as well.
Here’s all you need to know to get AMC Plus on DirecTV and find out which channel it is on.
What is AMC Plus?
AMC Plus is the latest AMC streaming channel/bundle, decked with content from all of AMC Networks. It offers all of AMC Premiere content, from early access to new AMC series, even content from its sister networks – Sundance TV, IFC, and BBC America.
On top of that, users also get access to the complete catalog of AMC’s linear networks as well as its streaming services, the likes of which include Shudder, Sundance Now, and IFC Films Unlimited. That’s more than a lifetime’s worth of content to watch for anyone who’s a fan of any of the numerous AMC shows.
AMC Plus is completely add-free and is available via a bunch of media-streaming devices and digital satellite services, including DirecTV.
How to get AMC Plus on DirecTV
Those who just can’t get enough of their AMC fix should definitely get their hands on the AMC Plus subscription. The completely commercial-free AMC Plus bundle is priced at $6.99 per month – a small price for a ton of AMC Inc’s shows, many of which are exclusive to AMC Plus and make their debut many months before they are released on the linear channels.
To get AMC+, simply go to DirecTV’s additional channels page and add AMC+ to the cart.
Go to your cart, purchase the bundle, and you’re good to go. Now, you will have access to all of AMC Plus’ extensive list of shows on your DirecTV.
