From 16 August, AMC Networks International – Central Europe will launch three new local and dedicated feeds in Romania, Slovenia and the Czech Republic/Slovakia.

The three new dedicated feeds will replace the Central European feed serving numerous countries and which has been in place since the channel’s launch in November 2014. This includes dedicated 24-hour AMC channels serving audiences with unique programming in the Czech Republic/Slovakia, Romania and Slovenia.

Examples of the new content bouquet include access in Romania to films from A-list stars such as Jean Reno, Steven Seagal and Jason Statham, while in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, August will bring a diverse line-up of films like The Sixth Day, Malcolm X and 30 Days of Night, while September will feature titles like Rum Diary, Chaos Theory and The Ghost Writer.

“AMC experienced tremendous local viewership growth in Hungary after the launch of our dedicated local feed,” explained AMC Networks International - Central Europe CEO Levente B Málnay. “We believe that launching dedicated AMC feeds in other Central European countries will provide even stronger connections to local audiences and will yield more outstanding results.”

AMC will also continue to bring exclusive series premieres to its viewers across all programming feeds. Among them will be season 2B of Fear the Walking Dead, launching as a world premiere on 22 August. Fear the Walking Dead season 1 and 2A will also be scheduled as marathon events to give an opportunity for viewers to catch-up.
