fear the walking dead people

BT's new entertainment channel AMC from BT has a launch date. It'll start broadcasting on August 28th – that's three weeks tomorrow.

It will be home to much-anticipated 'Fear the Walking Dead', the spinoff show of the hugely popular 'The Walking Dead'. That will start the following Monday, August 31st at 9pm. That's only a few days after its US premiere on August 23rd.

But that's not all. It will also be the exclusive UK home to Southern Gothic drama 'Rectify', which starts on Tuesday, September 1st.

BT hasn't confirmed which other shows will appear on the channel. But it has said that it will announce more soon.

AMC Networks is home to 'Mad Men' and 'Breaking Bad' in the US, so expect some quality programming.

"We're only a few weeks away from one of television's most compelling new dramas, and we're looking forward to sharing AMC's outstanding selection of series and films with our customers," said Delia Bushell, managing director for BT TV and BT Sport.

AMC from BT will be available to all BT TV customers for no extra cost.

The channel is the latest in BT's onslaught against Sky. It recently launched Europe's first 4K sports channel, BT Sport Ultra HD.
