AMC LAUNCHES VIDEO CONTEST

"Hey DISH, Where's My AMC?

Following DISH's Drop of AMC, the Network's Contest Challenges Fans to Create a Video About Losing "Breaking Bad," "The Walking Dead," "Mad Men," and Other of TV's Most Popular Shows

NEW YORK, NY, AUGUST 6, 2012 - AMC is launching a new online video contest, "Hey DISH, Where's My AMC?" (www.WheresMyAMC.com) following DISH's blackout of AMC last month. DISH dropped the network in an attempt to gain leverage in an unrelated lawsuit. The contest, which is accepting submissions through August 29, 2012, invites fans of AMC to create a 30-90 second video about how DISH customers feel since losing AMC's award-winning shows, including "Breaking Bad," "The Walking Dead," " Mad Men," and "Hell on Wheels." The video contest comes on the heels of AMC's release last week of its "Zombie Experiment NYC" video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RHPMocTmC08&feature=youtu.be), which went viral and became one of the most watched videos in the world, with more than 4.2 million views.

Mac McKean, Senior Vice President of AMC Digital, said: "We've had a tremendous outpouring of support from fans asking what they can do since DISH dropped us so we thought we'd give them an outlet for expressing their dissatisfaction over DISH's decision."

To enter the "Hey DISH, Where's My AMC?" contest go to www.WheresMyAMC.com

The Grand Prize Winner receives a $4000 cash prize, a Canon(R) 7D Camera (MSRP $1549), and the opportunity to discuss their work with AMC's Senior Vice President of Production. In addition, the winning video will appear across AMC owned social media channels. The contest also features two runner-up categories: "People's Choice" and "Highest Viewed." The winners of these categories will each receive a $1000 cash prize plus extras.
