  • Can the push to original programming continue as consumer reach the point of over-saturation? AMC execs think technology will continue to serve the company's business model as shows like Breaking Bad can get a late lift even if early rating suffer.
  • The company says it has a conservative approach to backing new shows, but notes SVOD and international gives it a safety net to recapture investments if it misfires.
  • On licensing vs. development, the bias is toward quality not one track or the other.
  • Movies will be a less significant part of AMC's business in the future.
