Recently, streaming services are bundling channels together to give you more bang for your buck. AMC+ is a prime example of that.

This new streaming service brings together content from AMC, BBC, IFC, and Sundance TV, along with full access to Shudder, Sundance Now, and IFC Films Unlimited, all for a reasonable price.

We recommend AMC+, especially if you’re a fan of critically acclaimed TV shows and movies. Stick with us as we explain just what AMC+ has to offer and why it may be your new favorite TV destination.

What is AMC Plus?

AMC+ is an on-demand premium streaming bundle that brings together the best of AMC, BBC America, IFC, and Sundance TV. The service also gives you full access to Shudder, Sundance Now, and IFC Films Unlimited.

With this robust package, you’ll get to watch new shows like Ragdoll alongside programs that are a few seasons deep, like Killing Eve. And, of course, all things The Walking Dead.

As a subscriber myself, I like being able to catch episodes of new shows and getting to binge standouts like Mad Men.

How to watch AMC Plus

To become an AMC+ subscriber, head to the AMC+ website and sign up for a subscription. Once you create a login and password, you can download the AMC+ app for iPhone, iPad, Android, Fire TV, Apple TV, and Roku.

If you subscribe via Apple TV, Prime Video, or The Roku Channel, you will pay for AMC+ through those services and use the password associated with those accounts. To watch AMC+ movies and shows, just launch the app for those services and go to the AMC+ section.

AMC Premiere is now AMC Plus: AMC Premiere was AMC’s streaming service that aggregated shows and movies from other channels.

AMC+ is a bundle that gets you all the AMC Premiere benefits and more, like the premier collections of IFC Films Unlimited, Shudder, and Sundance Now. It gives you ad-free access to shows from AMC, BBC America, IFC, and Sundance TV.

Is AMC Plus good?

AMC+ is good if you’re into award-winning shows and fan-favorite programs and movies.

What you get from an AMC+ subscription is a seriously hearty dose of quality programming that’s built for mature audiences. Intense dramas, dark comedies, and lots of goosebumps from psychological thrillers to spooky chillers are a huge chunk of what to expect.

If you’re looking for a bundle that also includes a heavy dose of kids’ entertainment or sports shows, AMC+ isn’t for you, but there are plenty of streaming bundles for different tastes.

Add AMC Plus to another service

If AMC+ doesn’t cover all of your TV needs, pair it with another streaming service or cable provider. Pairing it with a streaming service will probably cost you less a month than adding AMC+ to a cable or satellite subscription.

Here are the current providers offering AMC+ as an add-on. Just note that the price to add AMC+ is determined by the provider.

AMC Plus specs and features

Plan Streams
AMC+ 5

AMC+ allows users up to five simultaneous streams. So if five different household users love the bundle’s offerings but want to watch different shows at the same time, this plan will accommodate everyone.

But if you’re running all five streams at the same time, make sure your internet speed is robust enough to let the programs load and flow quickly. Our Best Internet for Streaming 2022 can be a handy guide to determine if you need to make a switch.
