AMC sees things differently. Many of the network’s most popular shows, including Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, and Mad Men were boosted by their inclusion on services like Netflix — with viewers getting hooked online, then turning to the network for live-to-air shows once they had watched the back catalog of older seasons. With a winning formula that has made AMC one of the most popular cable channels on the block, [AMC CEO Josh Saplan] doesn’t want to change a thing. – Parker Hall, Digital Trends
