    Ok I have tried everything on the Roku to get AMC and this program, all to no avail. How do you add AMC to the Roku channel lineup? Or where do you all watch this program and others on AMC.

    I believe you need to add Amazon Instant Video to your lineup and then you can get episodes from them.

    There is no AMC as such on Roku. Some of their programs however are available from sources that are on Roku, such as Amazon.

    I realize I can get the shows on Amazon by paying $1.99 per episode, but I thought we could get these programs episodes without additional money?

    I must be wrong?

    I'm afraid so. That's why Dish also offered credits on top of the Roku to offset your out of pocket with Amazon.

    You can watch the whole 1st season for "Free" from Netflix through your Roku bit of course you have to have a NF subscription.

    You guys are out-smarting yourselves. Not ONE of you has apparently even tried going to The Hell on Wheels page on AMC...

    I watched the 2nd season premiere show #201 from there last night... It didn't cost me a dime... I fully expect Sunday's show to be there in a few days...

    It won't be. They put it in there to give Dish customers "one last chance" to switch.

    OK that works. Well the Roku was free, not so for Hulu, Amazon, Netflix, etc. All require fees to watch content. I now need a Apple TV to send the computer signal to Panasonic.

    At least that way I can make my laptop act like DVR.

    Live and learn,

    Thanks for all the help, I was under the bad impression that Roku would do something else, like let me watch these shows without additional cost.

    I never saw the need for the Roku, plus a good search will find several sites that you can watch all the AMC shows at no cost. Granted most may not be true HD, but you can view them.

    There is plenty of free stuff on Roku players. Crackle, Crunchyroll, Roku News, Nowhereman, Plex server are but a few examples.

    Yes, AMC aside there is an unbelievable amount of free programming. And while we are on the subject, a vast majority of international programming remains, most all of anything that was legal and Dish does not carry.

    You have a Mac with Mountain Lion? You could Airplay Mirroring to do it without wires. Or get a cheap cable from monoprice.com. Either way.

    Bought my bride a new mac book pro with retina couple [​IMG] of weeks ago, so yes to Mountain Lion, yes with Apple TV and Airplay, I could Mirror or like you said get a cheap cable.
    When I heard about the Roku offer I thought I could use it instead of Apple TV, but not so.

    Last year we found Hell on Wheels to be what we call "Train Wreck" programs, rough programing but can't take our eyes off it.

    If you get playon for the roku ( granted not free but cheep) there is a script that you can add called project free tv and it shows all the amc stuff in real time. There is also a channel called watch series that has all the amc shoes on the next day. Look around
    playonscripts.com and add a bunch of them like I did and watch all of the great shows you want and some you have never heard of. I love it and got the lifetime subscription for $59.99. Hope this helps you.
