AMC Networks is launching a $5-per-month streaming package for Comcast Xfinity TV customers that will allow fans of shows like "The Walking Dead" and "Better Call Saul" to enjoy the programs ad-free.

AMC Premiere was made available Thursday to Xfinity TV customers, Variety reported.

The package will include a few extra perks, too, such as access to exclusive content like series trailers, uncut and bonus scenes, interviews, and perhaps even original content in the future.

Speaking about the service, Charlie Collier, president of AMC, SundanceTV, and AMC Studios, said AMC Premiere is a way of adapting to viewer’s wants.

“With AMC’s engagement at an all-time high, developing more options for viewers to connect with our content is a priority," he said in a statement.

"Tens of millions of existing viewers watch our shows through the cable ecosystem, so partnering with Comcast gives us a great opportunity to launch this new idea at scale. We’re excited to make AMC Premiere an available option for Xfinity TV customers, as we continue to build deeper relationships with fan communities across all of our programming and platforms."

"We are always looking for new content and innovative experiences to offer our customers that will continually add value to their Xfinity TV subscription," Matt Strauss, executive vice president and general manager of video and entertainment services, added.

"AMC Premiere is a great example of the new and innovative ways programmers can go to market with content and provide viewers with even more choice in how, when and where they access and engage with the network. We are excited to partner with AMC to deliver this first-of-its-kind experience to our customers.”

AMC Premiere is currently available for Xfinity TV customers through Xfinity set-top boxes and the Xfinity Stream website and mobile app.

In upcoming months, the package will also be available on AMC apps and AMC.com.
