“AMC Premiere provides commercial-free viewing of in-season original AMC series, as well as exclusive and first-look content, extended episodes, curated movies, the ability to binge certain shows ahead of linear viewers and other benefits.” Says AMC.
One highlight included in AMC Premiere is commercial-free viewing, which is definitely a welcome addition in the days of constant ads and commercials on cable and streaming sites.
AMC offered this perk to subscribers for the season nine premiere as well, but it didn’t circulate until later on. Mac McKean, executive vice president of innovation for AMC Networks added of the offering,
“In addition to commercial-free viewing of our original series, AMC Premiere customers have enjoyed a variety of other benefits like early access to premieres and the ability to binge full seasons of some shows before they appear on our linear network. Last fall, we offered the season nine premiere of The Walking Dead one day early and it resulted in the single biggest day of new sign-ups in the history of this new platform. In addition to this full week of early access to our mid-season premiere, we are planning to add bonus show content for AMC Premiere customers across the second half of season nine.”
This episode of The Walking Dead is called “Adaptation”, and will see the group after the loss of Jesus, and the Whisperers storyline begin to unfold.
Episode 9×09’s synopsis reads “The group unmasks a disturbing and dangerous new thread. An escaped captive revisits his past.”
The Walking Dead season 9 returns February 10, 2019 at 9 pm ET on AMC. Super Bowl LIII airs on Sunday, February 3rd at 5:30 PM.
