Dish will pay AMC and Cablevision $700 million for a new multi-year agreement that gives the cable provider all of AMC Networks' channels—AMC, IFC, Sundance, and WE TV. Fans of Rick Grimes and his band of zombie killers are certainly relieved. [EW]

DISCUSSION

Unless I get reimbursed for all the iTunes season passes I had to buy for AMC shows this year (including this season of Walking Dead!!!), I'm *still* dropping Dish in December when my contract runs out. The fact that they finally settled does not make it okay that they took away more than half of the programming I cared about without changing my bill to reflect that.

As far as I'm concerned, this whole ordeal was as good as outright picking my pocket.
