How to Watch AMC+ on Amazon Fire TV

You can watch AMC+ on Amazon Fire TV using the available Sling TV app. Just ask Alexa via your Fire TV remote to download Sling TV. Alternatively, just search for Sling TV using the controls, or have the Sling TV app downloaded to your device via Amazon’s website. Once installed, log in to Sling TV to find AMC+.

How to Watch AMC+ on Roku

You can watch AMC+ on Roku using the available Sling TV app. The app is available through the Roku Channels Store at no additional cost to download. However, you will need to create your Sling TV account ahead of time.

How to Watch AMC+ on Apple TV

You can watch AMC+ on Roku using the Sling TV app available for iOS and Apple devices. Just search for the app in your app store then download it to your device. It’s simpler to create your account on a separate device before you try to log in to your Sling TV account on Apple TV.

What is AMC+?

AMC+ is a new streaming service from AMC that offers content and access to a collection of other streaming services. The full list of channels/networks’ content you have access to under AMC+ include:

  • AMC Premiere
  • IFC
  • SundanceTV
  • Shudder
  • Sundance Now
  • IFC Films Unlimited

Alongside the somewhat obvious benefit of having access to content from all of these channels, AMC+ also offers early premiere access to select content. As an added bonus, all of the content you’ll get through AMC+ is completely ad-free.

Is AMC+ Available Anywhere Else?

Sling TV is going to be your best option for AMC+ if you want to get it without cable. The only other alternative is to sign up to Comcast for cable TV to get AMC+. Through Comcast, the cost is much less at $4.99 per month.

That said, you probably don’t want to sign up for Comcast just to get AMC+. Comcast cable TV is significantly more expensive than a cord-cutting option.

Good News for Current Comcast Internet Subscribers

Here’s a bit of good news if you’re a current Comcast internet subscriber.

If you are currently using Comcast as your ISP, the company is still offering its Xfinity Flex streaming device for free to current internet customers. With the Xfinity Flex device in place, you get access to 15,000 hours of TV shows and movies, including content from NBCUniversal’s new Peacock streaming service.

According to Xfinity, Flex users can add AMC+ for the $4.99 price. So you don’t need a Comcast cable TV subscription to get AMC+, just Comcast internet and their free Xfinity Flex device.

Again, we wouldn’t recommend switching to Comcast as your ISP or as a cable provider just to get AMC+. But if you’re already set up with Comcast internet, you might as well enjoy a free streaming device with free access to Peacock and cheaper access to AMC+.
