SILVER SPRING, Md. -- AMC Networks today announced the launch of two of its proprietary subscription streaming services on YouTube TV, Acorn TV (http://acorn.tv), North America's largest and most popular streaming service for British and international television; and UMC (www.UMC.tv), the first and largest streaming service for Black TV and film. The services will join sister services Shudder, Sundance NOW, and AMC Premiere as part of YouTube TV's expanding lineup of premium streaming service add-on options.

With the launch of Acorn TV and UMC's add-on channels, YouTube TV subscribers nationwide will be able to access both streaming services' highly-in-demand, award-winning original, exclusive and popular content, including Acorn TV's bingeable mysteries, dramas and comedies from across the globe, as well as UMC's extensive library of popular Black film and television content. Acorn TV's add-on channel is now available via YouTube TV for $6 a month, and UMC's add-on channel is $5 a month.

Over the past year, Acorn TV and UMC have expanded their availability across various platform partners, most recently joining Apple TV Channels and The Roku Channel. Others will be added later this year.
