What Channel is AMC on DIRECTV?

Are you a fan of the thrilling The Walking Dead? Did you love Better Call Saul? Was Breaking Bad just as iconic for you as it was for me?

The network has a reputation for airing some of the most defining shows in modern television history. This blog explores where you can find AMC on your plan and aims to help save you the channel flipping. There are also some honorable mentions of some of the best shows the network has aired till date. Let’s begin.

What’s to Watch on AMC on DIRECTV?

AMC has a solid reputation when it comes to offering original, out-of-the-box content. The cable channel originally aired only movies but began a gradual shift towards TV shows in 2002. Some of the early shows included Film Fakers, which was an acclaimed success. This was followed by the still popular Mad Men. From there it was only a matter of time before shows like Hell on Wheels and Breaking Bad rolled out. AMC is very different from the VH1 format

Where can I find AMC on DIRECTV?

While there are tons of TV guides that can help you locate not just AMC but channels like TBS as well. But when your show is on, you can’t spend 10 minutes googling the channel position. This is why this section of this blog is most helpful to the AMC fan base in DIRECTV users. You can find AMC at channel position here:

Pretty simple, isn’t it? You have to understand that DIRECTV is a satellite-based service. This means the channel numbers stay the same, no matter what city/state you are in or what package you subscribe to. The channel position for FX on DIRECTV will be the same in Chicago as in Milwaukee.  

What is AMC Best Known For?

Some of the most popular shows today include The Walking Dead. The show follows a group of survivors in a post-apocalyptic zombie landscape. There are also several new shows on the block including Small Town Security and Comic Book Men. Better Call Saul is a spin-off or successor show to the critically acclaimed Breaking Bad. AMC also is home to Preacher. This is an irreverent, insane comic book-based drama that follows a conflicted preacher blessed (or cursed) with a strange power. You don’t get any better quality content, not even on HBO.
