AMC Networks has announced a new effort titled We're With You, which is making a ton of shows available to stream for free. This includes the first half of The Walking Dead season 10, amongst many others. This is part of a growing effort in the entertainment industry to help encourage people to practice social distancing by making content more accessible for the time being.
This new multi-network effort is intended to entertain, inform and remind audiences that they are not alone and that we are all in this moment together. AMC Networks is offering hours of popular programming from across its networks for free. This includes AMC, BBC America, IFC, and SundanceTV, as well as the SVOD service Sundance Now. The initiative also includes specially curated programming marathons across their traditional networks. Sarah Barnett, President of AMC Networks Entertainment Group and AMC Studios, had this to say in a statement.
"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. 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."
The programming available is wide-ranging. The Walking Dead season 10's first eight episodes are available to stream through May 1 on AMC.com and AMC TVE. BBC America has a selection of free nature documentaries on BBCAmerica.com and the BBC America app for April. IFC has full seasons of shows available, including Baroness von Sketch Show, Birthday Boys, Spoils of Babylon, Spoils Before Dying, Bunk and Food Party Select episodes of Comedy Bang Bang and Mystery Science Theatre 3000, as well as the season premiere of Brockmire are all available on IFC.com and IFC TVE.
Elsewhere, SundanceTV hit is making Liar season 1 available in front of the paywall on Sundance Now. This will allow viewers to catch up before season 2 premieres on SundanceTV on April 8. Additional series are also available for free on Sundance Now through April 14 including the first seasons of Riviera, The Restaurant, Public Enemy and The Bureau. As previously announced, Killing Eve season 3 has also been bumped up by a full two weeks and is now set to debut on April 12 on both AMC and BBC America.
The networks will also be running several spots with scenes that have renewed relevance, given the current circumstance. These spots will feature the likes of Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Rhea Seehorn, Giancarlo Esposito and more in home-made videos. Those interested in taking advantage can head on over to AMC.com or any of these networks' digital channels.
