The Redbox streaming service has gained 12 free ad-supported streaming television channels from AMC Networks. The new channels are being added following an agreement between Chicken Soup for the Soul and AMC Networks.

Free TV continues to be big business, and like so many other services, Redbox also offers its own take. With an app available to download on various devices, and the website, there are plenty of ways to watch the free live TV and on-demand content that Redbox has to offer.

Going forward, the number of free live channels are being increased by 12, thanks to a new deal with AMC Networks. While Chicken Soup for the Soul hasn’t confirmed exactly when the channels will be added, the company has said that they will be available soon.

With so many new channels from AMC Networks being added, there’s very likely to be something here for everyone. Some of the notable additions include dedicated channels for The Walking Dead Universe, Portlandia, and MSG SportsZone.

AMC channels coming soon:

  • The Walking Dead Universe
  • Portlandia
  • Stories by AMC
  • AMC Thrillers
  • Slightly Off IFC
  • IFC Films Picks
  • All Reality WE tv
  • All Weddings WE tv
  • AMC en Español
  • ALLBLK Gems
  • MSG SportsZone
  • Anime X HIDIVE

Following the recent addition of Fremantle Media channels including The Jamie Oliver Channel and Supermarket Sweep, as well as these 12 AMC Networks channels, the overall number of FAST channels available through the Redbox Free Live TV will have climbed to more than 180.

The company won’t be stopping there either, as Chicken Soup for the Soul says that the plan is to increase the number of channels to more than 200 by early summer.
