Endeavor Communications in Negotiations with AMC Networks

Endeavor Communications is in negotiations with AMC Networks, owner of networks such as AMC and IFC, to continue offering their channels, but believes the current proposal from AMC Networks is excessive based on their networks’ ratings and what the average American household budget can afford. While Endeavor is restricted from talking about specific rates, AMC Networks is demanding a rate increase that is almost 350% more for the same exact networks, and are using the strength of AMC to push for higher rates. Endeavor customers are NOT at risk of losing AMC and IFC prior to the December 31 deadline because AMC Networks must contractually provide the signals through this date. However, after the deadline, they may choose to pull their signals from our customers. Endeavor has stated that their goal is to protect their members from significant programming fee increases.
