American Movie Channel is demanding close to a 50% rise in fees to cable provider Suddenlink in the Southern U.S. I don't know if other Cable providers are effected. The email I got from Suddenlink, asked me to contact AMC and ask them to be reasonable...
The owners of AMC Network want a near 50% increase over what they were paid last year, and a greater than 100% increase in annual payments by the end of their new proposed contract. Those demands are outrageous and unfair to Suddenlink customers.
We have asked AMC Networks to reconsider, but so far, they have refused, and have threatened to withdraw permission to carry their channels if we do not meet their demands. We will continue negotiating with them, in an effort to keep these channels at a reasonable price, and are willing to continue carrying AMC Networks while we negotiate.
In the meantime, please contact AMC Networks at (212) 324-8500 and ask them to be reasonable in their demands. You can send an email directly to their leaders at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cable channels owned by AMC Networks include AMC, IFC, Sundance, and WE tv. AMC is available in most areas on the Expanded Basic level of service. IFC, Sundance, and WE tv are available in many areas on one of Suddenlinks incremental levels of service, commonly known as Digital Tiers.
