AMC is an American basic cable and satellite television channel that is owned by AMC Networks. The channel primarily airs theatrically released movies, along with a limited amount of original programming. The channel's name originally stood for "American Movie Classics", but since 2002 the full name has been deemphasized as a result of a major shift in its programming.

As of August 2013, AMC is received by approximately 97,699,000 American households that subscribe to a pay television service (85.55% of U.S. households with television).
