A Guide on How To Watch AMC+ in the UK (Three Easy Steps)

To access AMC+ in the United Kingdom in 2023, you need to do the following:

  1. To get a true residential IP address in the United States
  2. To get an AMC+ subscription 
  3. To download the AMC+ app

Let's make see how you can get all three of these, and let's start with a true residential US IP address. What do we say "true"? Because it's not enough to get connected through any US VPN service to access AMC+! 

We have tested about 50 US VPN services, and none of them worked for AMC+. Why? Because they offer the US datacentres IP addresses blacklisted by AMC+. So the only solution here is to get the IP address that belongs to any residential range like Verizon, AT&T, Xfinity, Cox, etc. But how to achieve this? Read on…

Step 1. Get yourself a true residential IP address in the United States to watch AMC+ in the UK

It might seem compelling if you try to google this and look for the solution yourself, but we already spend days trying various services and solutions before coming up with the one that works 100% for watching AMC+ specifically.

As we figured out, the best way to get a US IP address suitable for accessing AMC+ is to order one from the specialized US IP address providers. This will cost you approximately the price of two cups of coffee per month if you subscribe to tey yearly plan, which is not expensive at all, but in return, you will get the US IP address from AT&T or Verizon. They will provide you with different IP addresses from time to time, which is also great for accessing various US-only streaming services, not only AMC+.

Step 2. How to subscribe to AMC+ in the UK

This has been known that you will need ti to have a credit or debit card issued by the US bank to subscribe to AMC+, but to our surprise, the UK cards worked well too. We have tested it with seven various credit cards we had at our disposal, and all of them worked, too, although all of them were issued by UK banks.

But what if AMC+ rejects your local credit card? Is there any solution or workaround? Yes, it is. As we have figured, you can subscribe and pay for AMC+ without entering your local credit card details!  How? By installing the AMC+ app on your mobile phone. It might seem to be a strange solution, but it works. The AMC+ apps for Android or iPhone use your Google or Apple payment profiles to pay for the subscription without revealing your credit card details to AMC+. And once subscribed on your mobile, your AMC+ account is good to use on any other device: your PC, tablet, or smart TV. The only question here is how to get the AMC+ app on your phone because you won’t be able to find it in your local UK Play Store or App Store. So, read on to learn how.

Step 3. How to download the AMC+ app in the UK

What exactly happens when you try to download the AMC+ app from the UK Play Store or App Store? Unsurprisingly, if you try that, you will see no such app there. Why is that? Because it’s available for US markets only. But, remember, lucky for us, in the first step, we got the residential IP address. You will be happy to know that it is also suitable for changing your local Play Store or App Store to the US app markets, at least temporarily, just to get the AMC+ app and return to the US app market you need (however, there are lots of pros of keeping it switched to the United States).

To sum up, there are two options how to download the AMC+ app in the UK:

Option 1. To switch your UK Play Store or App Store to the US one for downloading the AMC+ app

This option is a pretty simple one. You get the US IP address connected, then go to the Country/Region setting of your Play Store or App Store and select another country: the United States. Once done, the Play Store or App Store restarts. Search for the AMC+ app, download it, and install it. Create an AMC+ account and select a pricing plan that suits you. That it. There will be no need to enter your credit card details as AMC+ will use the payment methods stored in your Play Store or App Store account. 

Option 2. To create a new US Play Store or App Store account and then switch between the UK and the US accounts when needed

You will find this option helpful if you have some balance remaining on your UK Play Store or App Store account or some subscriptions you would like to keep with your UK account exclusively. In this case, you have to follow these simple steps:

  1. Log out of your UK Play Store or App Store account 
  2. Get your US IP address connected
  3. Create a new account, choose the United States when asked and enter some valid US ZIP code (90210, for instance)


We hope that our guide on how to watch AMC+ in the UK  was helpful so you can enjoy AMC+ now thank to the residential US IP address you have now. It is also worth noticing that you can use it to switch your UK Netflix account to the US version (+2780 new titles) and get some other astonishing streaming services otherwise not available in the UK, like Hulu, HBOmax, Paramount+, Pluto TV, fuboTV, Sling TV, Starz, and many others.

This one describes how to get a US Play Store account on your Android phone and then to subscribe to the AMC+ streaming service:

You can also buy a  Play Store or App Store gift card to top up your new US account balance thus, you don’t need a credit card at all!

Needless to say that it doesn't matter whether you create the AMC+ subscription on iPhone or Android phone. You can use your AMC+ account credentials on any other device.
