Send DISH Network A Message in the “Hey DISH, Where’s My AMC?” Video Contest!

by Caleb Hamilton

Imagine sitting in your living room, watching a very exciting episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead and suddenly the screen goes blank. Shortly a message appears on the screen from DISH Network, “Sorry, we no longer offer this channel.” What would you do? Throw your recliner at the television? Perhaps choke on your beverage? AMC is giving you the chance to show DISH Network what their subscribers are going through with a new viral video contest.

DISH Network recently dropped AMC in an attempt to gain the upper hand in an unrelated lawsuit. So in response, AMC has launched the Hey DISH, Where’s MY AMC? video contest, following their Zombie Experiment NYC video, which went viral and became one of the most watched videos in the world with over 4.2 million views. AMC is hoping to get a lot of videos which express what DISH subscribers who are fans of AMC shows must be going through.

Mac McKean, Senior Vice President of AMC Digital, said: “We’ve had a tremendous outpouring of support from fans asking what they can do since DISH dropped us so we thought we’d give them an outlet for expressing their dissatisfaction over DISH’s decision.”

Just submit a 30-90 second video of how you would react if you were a DISH subscriber and lost one or more AMC shows: The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, Mad Men or Hell on Wheels. You could also make a video based on a specific theme such as the lengths you’d go to, as a DISH subscriber, to get back AMC programming. The grand prize winner of the contest, “AMC’s Choice,” will receive $4000, a Canon® 7D Camera, and the opportunity to discuss their video with AMC’s Senior Vice President of Production.  The winning video will also appear across AMC-owned social media channels.  Two runner-ups, “People’s Choice” and “Highest Viewed,” will each receive a $1000 cash prize plus extras.

The submission period ends on August 29th, followed by voting. The winner will be announced on September 10th. You can learn more about the contest and enter at WheresMyAMC.com. You can also learn more about why DISH dropped AMC and its sister channels at switchfromdish.com.
