Cheaper Version Of AMC Plus Has Launched

AMC Networks has joined other streaming services by adopting an ad-supported version of its streaming platform, AMC+.  Now you can save money by subscribing to the ad-supported version of AMC+ for $4.99 per month as opposed to the present $8.99 ad-free version. The management team of AMC Networks has been drawing attention to the launch over the past several months. With 11 million subscribers across more than a half-dozen targeted services, AMC Networks is playing a different game than its larger media rivals. CEO Kristin Dolan, addressing Wall Street analysts last month on the company’s second-quarter earnings call, reiterated the strategy. “We really have a different sort of economic structure with our services that are more targeted towards specific genres and specific types of subscribers,” she said. “We don’t try to be something for everyone.” Deadline says the ad-supported version won't be too ad-heavy. There will be only five minutes of commercials and the same programs will be on both programs. What are your thoughts on streaming services versus cable?
