"Occasionally, we make changes to our channel offerings to reflect the evolving viewership trends of our customers. Starting January 1, 2020, AMC will no longer be available as part of your TV package. If you pay a separate monthly service fee for this channel, you will no longer see this charge on your bill as of this date. We understand that a change like this can be frustrating and we apologize for the inconvenience."

Re: Rogers Dropping AMC

Well that sucks!!! Is there anything we can do?
We recently moved and had an opportunity to switch TV providers and the only channel we made sure we were able to get when comparing to Bell was AMC. Too bad I didn't see this earlier.

Feedback: when using the Rogers app, you don't see these kind of announcements until you download the bill. There should be some announcement pop up or board that's easier to access.

Sadly, as of Jan 1 2020, Rogers will no longer offer AMC as a channel and we will lose access to TWD. Off to Bell for me

All Rogers customers, regardless of their cable packages will be affected by this as Rogers will no longer be carrying AMC as part of their channel lineup at all as of Jan 1 2020. Stupid decision on their part as they will lose a LOT of customers over this decision.

yes, it is listed on the November bill. No more AMC at all on Rogers as of Jan 1 2020

I am sorry but for the prices Rogers charges their customers for less than stellar services, they can afford to renew with AMC and at least offer their customers something they actually want!

Re: Rogers Dropping AMC

This is nothing more than a game of chicken, between Rogers and AMC, to see who will blink first.  Have a look at some of the search results from the last dispute in 2013:

I'd expect to see more of this occur in the future.  With the advent of the Ignite TV system, Rogers will know exactly what you watch, when you watch it, if you record it and when you watch anything that has been recorded.  With those numbers available, Rogers will have the upper hand when it comes to any distribution negotiations with content owners.  Yup, its going to be an interesting future indeed.

People still watch The Walking Dead? I would think the zombies are pretty much puddles by this point

I seriously doubt this decisions was fueled by lack of popularity of this network.. AMC is easily in the top 20. Rogers is making this decision despite what they know(analytics).
