BT has confirmed that it is celebrating the launch of new channel AMC Global by giving Sky and Freeview viewers the chance to catch the premiere of Fear the Walking Dead on Monday August 31st.
The new series, which is a spin-off from the highly acclaimed The Walking Dead, is to be made exclusively available to BT TV customers as part of a new deal between BT and AMC Global.
However, the first episode of the highly anticipated new show will also be screened on BT Showcase (Freeview channel 59, Sky channel 192) at 9pm next bank holiday Monday.
AMC itself launches on August 28th, bringing with it a number of hit shows, including Breaking Bad and Mad Men, as part of agreements with Sony Pictures Television and Lionsgate.
The channel will thereafter be exclusively available to BT TV and BT Sport Pack customers.
Expansion into the UK will represent a significant milestone for AMC after launching outside North America for the first time last year.
AMC is now screened in over 125 countries throughout Europe, Latin America, Asia, Africa and the Middle East.
