AMC Networks has revealed that AMC+ and a suite of apps are now available in Australia. AMC+ is home to the Tales of The Walking Dead, and the soon-to-premiere Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire debuts on October 2nd.
A subscription to AMC+ includes the AMC programming and Acorn TVC, which focuses on British shows and Shudder, the horror/genre-focused platform.
Acorn TV offers exclusive originals, addictive dramas, arresting mysteries and more from Britain and beyond, including fan favourites such as Midsomer Murders, Agatha Christie’s Marple and Poirot, Taggart, Murdoch Mysteries, Suspects, Rosemary and Thyme, Line of Duty, George Gently and Foyle’s War. The service also features a wide range of Acorn TV Originals, including Harry Wild, Recipes for Love and Murder, Darby and Joan, My Life is Murder, Under the Vines, The Madame Blanc Mysteries, Whitstable Pearl, The Chelsea Detective, Queens of Mystery and Signora Volpe, among many others.
Shudder offers the best selection in genre entertainment, covering horror, thrillers and the supernatural, from Hollywood favorites and cult classics to original series, documentaries and critically acclaimed new original movies. Popular series include Creepshow, The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula, The 101 Scariest Horror Movie Moments of All Time and Slasher: Flesh and Blood, exclusive films include Mad God, Glorious and What Josiah Saw and documentaries include This is GWAR and Woodlands Dark and Days Bewitched: A History of Folk Horror, among many others.
An AMC+ streaming bundle is available now at https://www.amcplus.com/countries/australia with a limited-time introduction price to lock into a one-year subscription at $4.99 a month instead of the standard $8.99 price. Both Acorn TV and Shudder are available on their own at $6.99 a month, so this is a terrific deal. You can subscribe to all channels separately or enjoy the benefits of AMC+ on Apple TV channels or via Prime Video channels.
AMC+ is going to be the home for all of the next generation of series spinning out of The Walking Dead Universe, including the upcoming The Walking Dead: Dead City, which focuses on Maggie and Negan on their trip to Manhatten, and the forthcoming spin-off that’ll see much-loved fan favourites Rick and Michonne reunited. In the press release, I received the wording “the future home of The Walking Dead Universe in Australia” was used, so I’m not sure if that means the core series will be shifting to AMC+ streaming.
Following Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire, a series starring Alexandra Daddario based upon Anne Rice’s Mayfair Witches is also planned for early next year.
