I believe Amazon Instant should have season passes for both of those when the new seasons start.

Which is awesome in the same way that watching TV through your neighbor's window is awesome. That is to say, not at all.

Very true. I've experimented with Justin TV a few times and have not yet discovered any video with picture quality that I would consider watchable.

Netflix carries AMC about 1 season behind. Amazon carries them about a day after airing, but it will cost quite a bit ($2-3/episode).

I"m always surprised that people think 2-3 bucks for a tv show is a lot considering that most people spend more than that on coffee or fast food in a day

It's a lot if you've got 5-10 shows you watch regularly every week. You need to weigh the cost against what you'd pay for cable or sat.

I called Dish to complain about them dropping AMC because I am a big Walking Dead fan. They actually credited my account $30 so I could pay to stream it from Amazon. Give them a call and complain. It's worth a try.

If you watch 5-10 shows per week, then it sounds like you need cable anyway.. you're a real TV watcher if there's 10 shows a week to watch, imho.

If someone has 2 or 3 shows they need to pay for, at $2 per episode, it's $6 a week or $24 a month. Even if you watched 5 shows a week ($40) or 10 shows a week ($80), that's still cheaper than many people pay for cable (mine's around $90 plus internet), and the bonus is once you buy a show, you can watch it whenever you want (pretty much), for as long as you want.

With cable, unless you save something long-term to your DVR, you only pay to see it once. I can go back and watch Lost all I want because it's on Netflix, or I can buy it on Amazon if I really want to.
Yeah, I got some Rokus.

The problem is that the show creators don't allow them to be rented. The price per show is about as low as it can get but it would be better to pay Amazon half that or less for a season pass RENTAL. I don't need to own these shows. Consumerism is dead, we don't buy DVDs like we used to and we will never buy digital content at that pace.

As for BB and WD both are on Netflix. You may have to wait, but that's fine. They'll still be good when you get them.

Anyone remember when AMC was a movie channel? A really good one at that? I miss those days. MTV used to play music videos as well. I LOVED it then. You'd have Run DMC followed immediately by Billy Joel with a little Alice Cooper just to round out the mix.

Well, at least they have movie-quality TV series.. In my opinion. I love both of those shows.

I like them as well. I just miss the classic commercial free format. Once the added com.ercials it all went downhill fast. Now I no longer care for amc I just want the two shows without paying for a channel to get them.
