“That’s what the money is for!”

One of the most interesting parts of Zachary Seward’s profile of AMC’s recent business success is that you can exactly quantify how much AMC’s run of original content — Mad Men, Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, The Killing — has added to your cable bill.

Whether you watch these shows or not, you’re paying 13c per month for the batch of shows. Welcome to the odd land of cable television economics.

As for me, I’m catching up on Breaking Bad via Netflix — which means I’m basically paying twice. Worth it… but still.
