AMC returned to DishNetwork on Sunday - in time for this season's second episode of "The Walking Dead"- and Sundance, Wetv and IFC will all be back on Dish as of Nov. 1.
That's because the satellite TV provider, which dropped those channels in July, finally settled its ongoing dispute with AMC Networks.
The settlement involves a lot of legal stuff that doesn't really mean much to viewers. AMC had maintained that Dish dropped its channels because of a legal dispute involving AMC's former parent company, Cablevision, over Voom HD, a high-definition service Dish agreed to carry and then dropped.
I'm no lawyer, but the fact that Dish payed Cablevision and AMC $700 million to settle the suit makes me think Dish lost.
But, once again, none of that means anything to Dish subscribers. What's important to them is that AMC - home of "Walkind Dead," "Mad Men" and "Breaking Bad" - is back.
