Why is AMC+ more expensive than Disney+?


Streaming services with + in the title continue to be released. For those keeping score, we now have Disney+, Apple TV+, CBS All Access soon to become Paramount+ and AMC+. Have we missed any?

You can charge whatever you want for a subscription service, but $9/month may seem a bit on the pricey side compared to Disney+ at $7.99. AMC+ doesn’t have Star Wars or Marvel, but it does have Shudder, which costs $6/month just for that and The Walking Dead TV show, so maybe the subscription isn’t as expensive as it seems.

AMC+ is a $9-a-month bundled offering showcasing programming from across AMC Networks’ streaming and linear portfolios, from Shudder, Sundance Now and IFC Films Unlimited to AMC, BBC America, IFC and SundanceTV. Key titles include The Walking Dead Universe, Gangs of London, Riviera, Soulmates and marquee library titles like Mad Men. Prior to reaching Roku, the service was on Amazon Prime Video Channels, Apple TV, Comcast and Dish Network and Sling TV.

The good news is for those who haven’t tried it that have Amazon Prime Video there is a 30 day free trial available for AMC+. That should be ample time to try and decide if it’s worth continuing to subscribe.
