New York, NY, January 30, 2007 - AMC announced today that the month of January delivered a number of key highlights in ratings performance and subscriber developments for the network.

The following is a statement from AMC's EVP & General Manager, Charlie Collier:

"AMC's January performance is a great way to kick off 2007, and hitting the 90 million sub mark is a very important milestone for the network. There are few networks on basic or standard cable that are truly dedicated to movies, and our focus to uniquely celebrate movies with quality and consistency is a big part of hitting 90 million. We aim to create an atmosphere on the network where viewers can maximize the movie experience on television, and we will continue our commitment to deliver cinematic, quality entertainment of enduring value. AMC has never been at a better place and we look forward to continued growth."

Today's ratings and distribution announcements cap off an amazing month for the network with a strong list of noted recognition for AMC's first-ever original movie event, Broken Trail including: three Golden Globe nominations; three Screen Actor Guild nominations, a Directors Guild of America (DGA) nomination and a Writers Guild of America nomination. AMC's strong January ratings performance was strengthened by the premiere of the 35th anniversary of the Robert Redford film Jeremiah Johnson on 1/20/07 (3.09 HH rating-airing in AMC's Hollywood Icon Celebration to Redford) ranking it as the #1 rated theatrically-based basic cable movies of the month and the #4 highest rated program ever on AMC (behind AMC's Original Movie Broken Trail).
