Excessive commercials on AMC Channel

Jump to solution

I installed the AMC channel yesterday to catch up on The Watch.  I’m unable to watch more than a few minutes (~2-3) of the show before the commercials kick in.  Most of the time, it’s a 2:30 block of the exact same 30 minute commercial on repeat.  At least twice during the first episode, I finished one commercial block, watched about 20-30 more seconds of the show, and was forced to watch another commercial block.

That’s absolutely excessive, and far more frequent & longer than AMC’s commercials blocks on DISH.  I don’t know if this is happening due to a bug, or if it’s an intentional move to force people to upgrade to AMC Premier or AMC+.  Regardless, I ended up giving up on catching up on the series through the channel app.

Thanks for the post.

For more information about that channel's commercials, you'll want to contact AMC support directly to inquire further. Many channels on Roku are developed and maintained by the channel provider themselves.

Well I have two TCL Roku TV’s but I also watch AMC on my iPad! So jjust to update,  I’m watching the new season of A Discovery of Witch’s, and they’re running “5” of the exact same commercial in a row, sandwiched between 1-2 minutes of programming! I almost wouldn’t mind as much if the commercials were each different but “5” of the exact same one is just unbearable, annoying and boring!!!!

I also pay for this channel through my Cox Cable Company!!!
