'Breaking Bad': Dish Customers Get Premiere Streaming Access From AMC

"Breaking Bad" fans who are Dish subscribers, AMC has your back. The network will stream the "Breaking Bad" Season 5 premiere for subscribers as the network continues its battle with the satellite TV provider.

"Every cable, phone and satellite company other than Dish carries AMC and its popular programming, including 'Breaking Bad,' 'The Walking Dead,' and 'Mad Men' in their basic package," the network said in a statement. "AMC wants its loyal Dish viewers to experience the excitement of the 'Breaking Bad' premiere at the same time as their friends and neighbors, and we want to give Dish customers an extra week to switch providers so they can enjoy the rest of the season."

Dish subscribers can register to watch the premiere online at at 3 p.m. ET on Fri., July 13. AMC said it is offering the premiere to viewers after Dish dropped AMC to "gain leverage in an unrelated lawsuit."
