Looking for something to watch on BT TV?

AMC UK, the network behind well-known dramas Mad Men and Breaking Bad, is exclusive to BT TV customers and has a range of shows for you to curl up in front of, from action-thrillers to zombies to martial arts, there is something to suit everyone’s palette.

Fear the Walking Dead

This show has blood guts and gore, so if you’re squeamish look way now. Fear the Walking Dead is a prequel to the hugely popular Walking Dead. Set in Los Angeles, it tells the story of two families' fight for survival during an undead apocalypse.

If you tune in this week, season three will be showing on AMC so if you’re new to the show you’ve got some bingeing to do in order to catch up. Season four is set to premiere on Monday 23 April.

You can get involved in the conversation and share spoilers on Twitter with the hashtag #FearTWD. The show airs Mondays at 9pm.

Into the Badlands

Into the Badlands is a post-apocalyptic martial arts drama based on a 16th-century novel by Wu Cheng’en, Journey to the West. The AMC Original series sets the scene of a feudal society that has arisen from the destruction of civilisation. The US has now become known as the Badlands and is divided and ruled by seven ruthless Barons.

The plot centres around Sunny (Daniel Wu) who rescues a teenager from a deadly ambush. Together, they then embark on a journey to find enlightenment with the aim of bringing an end to the chaos in the Badlands. Get ready for some ass-kicking, sword-swinging action.

Season two is currently being screened, and the show airs every Wednesday at 9pm.


Protagonist, Daniel Holden (Aden Young), has spent nearly 20 years incarcerated on Death Row for murder. New DNA evidence voids his conviction, but when he returns home he is not welcomed with open arms. He now has the challenge of piecing his life back together even though his mere presence sparks unease in the community.

Alan Sepinwall, a TV reviewer for HitFix, has described the show as: “One of the most spiritually rich and thoughtful shows anywhere on television”.

Mad Men

How could we not include the hugely popular AMC Original, Mad Men? Even if you’ve seen it already it’s worth a rewatch. It’s set in 1960’s New York and follows the the high-flying, ruthlessly ambitious men and women of an advertising company on Madison Avenue. Don Draper (Jon Hamm) is the top executive but there is no shortage of eager colleagues ready to knock him of his perch.

The TV drama, written by Matthew Weiner (Sopranos), secured its spot in history as the first cable series to win an Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series, for four years in a row. Starring Jon Hamm, Elisabeth Moss, Vincent Kartheiser, January Jones and Christina Hendricks, there are seven seasons for you to sink your teeth into.

The Terror

Last but not least is The Terror and it’s coming to AMC next week on Tuesday 24 April with a two-hour premiere. The chilling tale is based on the true story of Sir John Franklin and the Royal Navy’s treacherous mission to the Arctic in search of the Northwest Passage. The team must brave brutal, icy conditions.

AMC’s latest thriller is produced by Ridley Scott, David Kajganich and Soo Hugh so we know we’re in for a treat.
