Everyone knows about the Dish Network vs AMC dispute, right? So after Dish dropped AMC from their list of available channels, AMC reached out to viewers, fans and filmmakers to “make a video about how they would react if their cable provider didn’t have AMC as part of their satellite channel listing.”
The team at Zombie Go Boom made this Walking Dead inspired video. It’s not awful, but it’s not great either. Zombie Go Boom claims the video was rejected for being “too hardcore.” While that’s possible, this video doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface of some of the nastier moments from the actual show. ZBG also claims that they’re being censored by not being allowed to enter the competition (they also think Dish network is censoring AMC, which isn’t correct – it’s a money issue not a content issue). I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that being rejected does not equal censorship.
But you don’t have to listen to me! Check out the video and let us know what you think!
