Feels like they want to chase away subscribers.
After auto renewing my yearly AMC Premiere subscription barely a month ago this morning I find it not longer works. At first it appears Roku just forgot your login so you try and sign in. Either with code and cable provider (which of course just gets you the base service) or with login. On the login screen the on screen keyboard does not pop up till you click OK while in the field and does not move to the next field when you click on OK on the keyboard. The password is also hidden as you type. All in all making the process about as painful as you might think possible. But then after all that it asks you to sign in again on amc.com/activate with a code. Going there you are met with the cable login again. So I backed up and tried to login with email and password on the site first. That redirected me to the new AMC+ website which told me my login was no good. So at this point I started digging back through emails to see what is going on and found this from 7/30/2021 (just 10 days after they renewed me).
Change can be a VERY good thing
On 8/31, the AMC Premiere service will be ending, but we’ve got you covered. You can sign up for AMC+ and get access to all the incredible content you know and love from AMC Premiere, PLUS
- Prestige dramas and true crime documentaries from Sundance Now
- The largest collection of horror movies and series from Shudder including Creepshow
- The distinctive award-winning movies of IFC Films Unlimited
AMC+ subscribers also get early access to EACH new weekly episode of The Walking Dead Season 11 starting August 15! You also get The Walking Dead: Origins, a new AMC+ exclusive series, exploring the backstories of your favorite characters.
PLUS, AMC+ subscribers will get new AMC+ Originals like Kin, premiering this fall. With a stellar international cast, led by Charlie Cox (Daredevil), Aiden Gillen (Game of Thrones) and Ciaran Hinds (The Terror), Kin follows a Dublin family at the center of a gangland war, testing the unbreakable bonds of blood and family.
Stay tuned! We will be sending you a special link in August, so you can sign up before the curtain comes down on AMC Premiere.

I have not seen promo code mentioned in the email. Finally after figuring I'd wasted enough time I created an account on the AMC+ website. It appears the 40% off is for yearly versus monthly billing. And just for the first year.
And of course there is a new Roku app and you again have to sign in with email and password instead of with a code. At least in the new app you can see the password as you type in the new app. After that it is basically the same as the old app.
