"AMC's would be exclusively available to consumers who subscribe to a cable TV package" We already have this kind of arrangement for HBO, Showtime, and basically every other station. We millennials don't want to waste money on cable bills like our parents did. Either sell your shows online or don't. But don't pretend that streaming your shows online for people who already have cable accounts and can already watch your shows on cable is doing anything new. This is not going to make you more money. You will continue to lose money to pirates until you finally just sell your friggin product online for a price. $5 a month or $.99 an episode is my price. Offer that and I (along with millions of others) will pay. Otherwise i won't.
HBO and Showtime both have over-the-top digital only options that don't require any cable subscription. Not at your dictated price point, but they do have them. I sub to them for a couple months a year to catch up on shows then drop them until my backlog builds back up.
