AMC Networks International plans to launch AMC for the first time in Brazil on 1 April.

The 24-hour, advertiser-supported Portuguese-language linear service will debut on SKY, the country's largest satellite pay-TV operator, among other subscription television platforms.

The network will also feature the exclusive premiere of the Walking Dead companion series (title TBD) later in the year. AMC Global has just announced plans to air each episode within 24 hours of its US premiere.

"AMC has helped to redefine the broadcasting landscape with some of the most celebrated dramatic storytelling on television in the past decade," said Ed Palluth, ‎executive vice president of global distribution, AMC Networks International. "We're excited to extend our partnership with SKY after the successful debut of Sundance Channel in Brazil last year. We're looking forward to offering audiences across the country the inimitable combination of AMC's first run original dramas and extensive library of popular movies."
