AMC has just released an app for the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick. The app provides on demand access to a small selection of in-season full episodes if you activate the app with a subscription TV provider. If you don’t activate the app, you’re limited to only watch “extras,” which are short episode clips, sneak peeks, and behind the scenes videos. The app description says “many” season premiere episodes will be available to watch without needing to activate the app. There is no option for a live stream of what’s currently airing on the cable network.
The main screen of the app lists a single horizontally scrolling list of TV shows. There are currently 18 shows listed. Highlighting a show will indicate how many full episodes are available to stream if the app is activated. Many shows, like Breaking Bad, have no full episodes available to stream.
Selecting a show will bring up a season selector on the left and the episodes in the season on the right. Below each season label is a summary of how many full episodes are available and if there are extras for that season to view. Next to each full episode is an indicator of how many days that particular episode will be available to stream through the app.
Each season of a show has a dedicated extras page which lists all the extras. These can be viewed without activating the app. The extras are separated by episode. Extras include discussion panels with the show creators, making of videos, behind the scenes videos, season summary videos, fan art galleries, and much more.
The AMC app also has a movies section, but the available content is slim. Currently, there are only 4 movies available to stream. All 4 movies say they have 29 days left to watch, so since it’s currently the beginning of the month, it seems movies get cycled at the start of each month.
Lastly, the app has a basic search function and a settings page with the usual assortment of closed caption and login options.
