How to Watch AMC Online: The Definitive Guide
AMC is one of easiest networks to stream without cable.
My top pick right now for streaming AMC is through Philo because it’s one of the cheapest options out there.
Philo has 64 live TV channels, including AMC for $25 per month. Subscribers get unlimited Cloud DVR and a huge library of on-demand movies and TV shows.
You can quickly sign up for a free 7-day trial of Philo in under a minute using your mobile number. You’ll get networks such as A&E, HGTV and Investigation Discovery as part of Philo’s channel lineup.
But it’s not your only option. There are a half dozen ways for cord-cutters to stream AMC live without a cable subscription. So you should weigh the pros and cons of each service before deciding which one best fits your streaming desires.

AMC+ on Fire TV Stick, Roku and Apple TV
AMC+ is a new streaming service that has early access to Season 10 of The Walking Dead. Subscribers can stream AMC live with the platform. But the service is only available on Sling TV, Amazon Prime Channels, Apple TV Channels and The Roku Channel. If you do sign up for AMC+, be aware that there are currently some limitations.
When I recently signed up through Amazon Prime Channels, I quickly realized that I couldn’t use my account through my Roku TV. It was restricted to my Fire TV devices around the house.
There is no AMC+ app in the Roku Channel Store. There is also no support for Google Chromecast or other Android TV devices.
Also be aware that you need to already subscribe to Sling TV or Amazon Prime to add AMC+ as a subscription. With Roku, you can sign up through its channel store. AMC+ costs $8.99 per month.

AMC is not carried as a live TV channel on Hulu with Live TV. But you will find a small number of AMC shows through Hulu on-demand.
Hulu currently has past seasons of Killing Eve (under BBC America), Preacher, The Son and Fear of the Walking Dead. You can try out Hulu (with limited commercials) free for 30 days.
