Rogers, AMC reach new distribution deal

The multi-year agreement will keep popular shows The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad on the air in Canada.

Rogers Communications Inc. says it has renewed its distribution contract with AMC, the home to several popular series including The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad.

The cable company says the new multi-year agreement will also include carrying a high-definition feed of the channel before the end of the month.
On Thursday night, a contract which allowed Rogers to carry AMC’s channel expired, creating uncertainty over whether the signal for the channel would be shut off.
AMC launched an online campaign telling Rogers subscribers “You Have Lost The Walking Dead” or “Rogers Customers You May Lose The Walking Dead,” even though the channel had not disappeared from the Rogers lineup.
The move caused some Rogers subscribers to complain, worried that Sunday night’s episode of The Walking Dead wouldn’t be available on their cable packages. The new agreement ensures there will no programming interruptions.
