How A Threat To Drop AMC Could Kill The Cable Bundle

Wouldn't it be great if the current cable bundling system just went away? Imagine being able to buy a 25 / 50 / 100 channel package and select only the channels you want instead of being forced to buy a 200+ package to get the 25 channels you actually want.

A standoff between a consortium of small cable companies and AMC Networks could speed up the death of the cable bundle, sources tell The Post. The consortium, which represents about 4 million homes, is refusing to pay a demand for what they claim is a tripling of AMC Networks’ fees آ— and are telling subscribers they can get AMC’s popular "The Walking Dead" through streaming services.
