At their faq;
Which browsers are supported by amc.com?

To watch full episodes online and AMC Live for Windows and Mac OS users, we recommend using Internet Explorer 9 and higher, or the latest versions of Firefox, Safari and Google Chrome with JavaScript enabled.
I hope TS does not pay any penny for this service. It turns out they're trying really hard to limit their support on purpose :D

Don't you just love these highly intelligent IT people who keep pushing Internet Explorer??
Oh well I can still go to Sling TV and see the AMC schedule. It was just nice to be able to check while I was on the internet without shutting down and opening Sling TV.

I found out the problem.

For some reason amc's website -requires- wasm to be enabled (my main profile has it enabled for testing purposes).
That makes absolutely no sense for the type of site it is, and probably is a dirty shortcut of the "browser detection library" to try and detect "modern" browsers.

I shot them a message. WASM is often disabled in browsers because it gets abused for e.g. crypto malware.

Thank you Moonchild.
Maybe they will change it but I doubt it.
I will keep a check on it.
