#WheresMyAMC

Hey DISH, Where's My AMC?

Winner Announced On
September 18, 2012
THE BRIEF

If you are a fan of AMC shows like The Walking Dead, Mad Men, Breaking Bad and Hell on Wheels, how would you feel if you suddenly lost AMC? That’s what recently happened to subscribers of DISH, which dropped AMC from its channel lineup right before the Breaking Bad premiere in July. This viral video contest is for you to help express what DISH customers must be feeling right now about losing AMC’s award-winning shows. You might even be one of these customers (although that's not a requirement).

Submit a 30 to 90 second video of how you would react if you were a DISH subscriber who lost AMC and one or more of these specific programs: The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, Mad Men or Hell on Wheels. Alternatively, you can make your video about one of these related themes: the lengths to which you'd go, as a current DISH subscriber, to get back one or more of the above programs or the impact, as a DISH subscriber, the loss of these programs has had on your TV life.
