AMC is an American cable and satellite television channel that currently airs ''The Walking Dead and will begin airing The Walking Dead's companion show, Fear the Walking Dead, in July of 2015.


"AMC" originally stood for "American Movie Classics."  However, as the focus of the channel switched from classic films to original television programming in 2003 the name was deemphasized.  This change in focus was due to a significant rebranding that the channel underwent on September 30, 2002.  The channel began showing movies from all eras rather than solely classic movies.
