Charter Does Exclusive Content Deal With AMC

STAMFORD, Conn. and NEW YORK -- Charter Communications (Nasdaq: CHTR) and AMC Networks Inc. (Nasdaq: AMCX) announced today a groundbreaking partnership that will leverage the growing capacity of AMC Studios to develop and co-produce distinct, high-quality original programming, with exclusive co-branded content for Charter's Spectrum platform. The partnership will give Spectrum customers access to content created specifically for them, further differentiating Charter's platform and services.

AMC Studios produces some of the most popular and acclaimed shows on television, including "The Walking Dead," "Fear the Walking Dead," "The Son," "Into the Badlands," "Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency," and the forthcoming "The Terror." The studio operation has grown from one production – "The Walking Dead" – in 2010 to 10 scripted originals in 2016, as AMC Networks has successfully executed a strategy to produce and own more of the shows that appear on its linear television networks.

"This is an exciting deal that furthers Charter's goal of providing its customers with world class products and services," said Tom Montemagno, EVP of Programming Acquisition for Charter Communications. "AMC Networks is one of the most respected producers of high-quality original programming in the business and we are proud to partner with them to identify, develop and produce original content that will further differentiate our customer experience and the value we provide in a competitive marketplace."
