Xbox consoles are some of the best streaming devices since they are readily available, are supported by the majority of streaming services, and can deliver 4K video. Unfortunately, AMC+ is not one of those streaming services, as it does not have an app on Xbox. However, you shouldn’t panic because there is still a way to watch AMC+ on Xbox.
AMC+ is one of the most underrated streaming services, thanks in part to hit content like The Walking Dead. There are tons of other great TV shows and movies to watch, too. AMC+ has content from BBC America, IFC, and Sundance. However, the low monthly price really makes AMC+ stand out amongst the competition. Now, let’s start watching AMC+ on an Xbox console!
How to Watch AMC+ on Xbox
Because Xbox does not have an AMC+ app, we have to use a workaround. Since Xbox consoles come with a web browser pre-installed, the best option is to stream AMC+ directly from it. This works the same as streaming from your computer’s web browser. However, you may have to sign back in more frequently, and navigating is going to be clunkier than a traditional app.
Step 1: Open the Games and Apps Menu
The first thing you need to do is turn on the Xbox console and go to the homescreen. From the homescreen, click the “My games & apps” icon at the top of the screen. You can also access this menu at any time by pressing the Xbox button and selecting “My games & apps.”
Step 2: Launch Microsoft Edge
Now that you are in the games and apps menu, you need to find Microsoft Edge. The easiest way to do so is by clicking on the “Apps” tab in the left menu to filter apps from games. Then, click on the Microsoft Edge tile to launch the app.
Step 3: Go to AMC+
With Microsoft Edge up and running, it is time to go to the AMC+ website. You can either search for AMC+ or type “amcplus.com” in the address bar. This will take you to the desktop website that you can stream from.
Step 4: Sign in and Start Watching
Finally, click on the “Sign-in” button at the top of the screen. Enter your login information to access AMC+ content. You can also connect your cable subscription to the AMC+ app to watch even more TV shows and movies. After signing in, select a show to start watching AMC+ on your Xbox console.
What Can You Watch With AMC+?
AMC+ provides access to a range of AMC, Sundance, BBC America, and IFC TV shows. There are also a range of movies available. The most popular show on AMC+ is The Walking Dead. While you won’t find every episode of the hit zombie show, you will be able to watch nearly every spinoff series. AMC+ also has several live-streaming channels which air random episodes of hit shows.
What Subscription Options Does AMC+ Have?
AMC+ has two tiers to choose from. First is the ad-supported option, which costs $4.99 per month. The other is an ad-free subscription that costs $8.99 per month and includes the ability to download shows to watch later. The ad-free tier also has a discount if you pay for a year in advance, and it bills once per year at $83.88. Each tier comes with a seven-day free trial to get you started.
AMC+ is the perfect streaming service for fans of hit AMC TV shows. However, it is disappointing that AMC+ is not available on Xbox consoles. While it is possible to watch with AMC+ with Microsoft Edge on an Xbox console, it is not an ideal solution. Using a different streaming device, such as a Roku or Fire TV, will provide a much better experience.
