AMC Networks Rebrands MGM Channel as AMC in Int’l Territories

AMC Networks acquired MGM Channel as part of its recent purchase of Chellomedia

LONDON — AMC Networks is rebranding its MGM Channel in international territories as AMC. The rebrand marks the first distribution outside of North America for AMC.

AMC will begin launching locally versioned channel feeds on cable and satellite platforms across Europe, Latin America, Asia, Africa and the Middle East later this year. Also accompanying these channels will be AMC VOD, HD and TV everywhere services.

AMC Networks’ original series “Halt & Catch Fire” and “The Divide,” produced by AMC Studios, will be among the first original series to premiere on the channel internationally in an exclusive first TV window, this year.

In addition to premiering original programming from AMC Networks’ own studios, AMC will also feature movies from the Hollywood film libraries, including MGM, Paramount and Sony.

Bruce Tuchman, president AMC Global and Sundance Channel Global, said, “There is a huge appetite for AMC original programming abroad. That interest, coupled with our successful history of curating films from all the major studios to complement our original programming, gives us a great opportunity to make AMC Global a top-tier entertainment destination worldwide.”

As president AMC Global and Sundance Channel Global, Tuchman is responsible for the programming, marketing, business and strategic development of its global networks.
