The move will see AMC Networks Entertainment Group offer hours of programming from across its networks – AMC, BBC America, IFC and SundanceTV – and the SVOD service Sundance Now for free across digital and on demand, along with specially curated programming marathons across linear networks.

Among other offers, AMC has made the first half of The Walking Dead Season 10 available in front of the paywall until 1 May on AMC.com and AMC TVE; BBC America has curated a collection of free nature documentaries on BBCAmerica.com and the BBC America app as part of its Nature NOW collection for the month of April; IFC is offering a comedy line-up that includes free and unauthenticated full seasons of IFC series for the month of April, SundanceTV’s hit series Liar season 1 will also be available in front of the paywall on Sundance Now, encouraging viewers to catch up with the series as season 2 premieres on SundanceTV on 8 April.

AMC Networks Entertainment Group has also moved up the season three premiere of Killing Eve (pictured) by two weeks, with all episodes simulcasting on BBC America and AMC starting on Sunday 12 April.
The networks will also be running a variety of spots with scenes that says AMC have renewed relevance to current circumstances and creative that features talent like Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Rhea Seehorn, Giancarlo Esposito and more in home-made videos meant to encourage and entertain viewers.

“We want to join with our talent and respond to this moment in the best way that entertainment companies can – which is, to entertain people,” explained Sarah Barnett, president of AMC Networks Entertainment Group and AMC Studios. “Our We’re With You campaign is intended to give information, to offer companionship in the kind of responsive way that linear tv is uniquely able to, and we want to offer audiences the chance to have a laugh, maybe especially important at times of crisis “We also wanted to make our great content available to more viewers at a time when we are all looking for fantastic things to watch.”
