Dish Drops ‘Mad Men’ for ‘Bikini Barbershop’ in AMC Feud

Dish Network Corp., following through on a threat to remove AMC Networks Inc.’s channels, said it will replace “Mad Men,” “The Walking Dead” and other AMC programs with movies and shows from HDNet this weekend.

AMC, IFC and We TV will be switched off at 11:59 p.m. New York time tomorrow, Dish said today in a statement. Commercial-free movies from HDNet will be substituted for AMC’s flagship network. HDNet’s main channel, with shows such as “Bikini Barbershop” and “Drinking Made Easy,” will stand in for IFC, the independent film channel. The Style channel will replace We TV, a network aimed at women.
