Online ads telling Canadians they have "lost" The Walking Dead

walking_dead_norman_reedusSome Canadian internet users were met with confusing online banners this week that stated they had “lost” The Walking Dead.

The banners were referencing the on-going negotiations between the AMC network and Rogers Communications over a broadcast deal.

Some users were reporting on Wednesday night that they were seeing the ads that stated “Rogers Customers You Have Lost The Walking Dead” or “Rogers Customers You May Lose The Walking Dead”.

The ads encouraged viewers to go to a website or call 866-Keep-AMC.

AMC this week launched a website that urged Canadians to get in contact with Rogers and tell them how much they want to see shows like Mad Men, Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead.
