Activation Basics

Activation is just an easier way to sign in on a TV. It lets you type on a computer instead of using your remote control.

If you see an activation code on your TV screen when you open the AMC+ app, then here's what you need to do:

  1. Use a computer and web browser
  2. Go to
  3. Enter your email, password and the code from your TV
  4. Wait for your TV screen to update automatically―now you're ready to stream

Can I enter the activation code using a mobile device?

Yes, if you make sure that you're still in the mobile web browser. That means, make sure that the phone/tablet does not move you out of the browser and into the AMC+ app.

(Some devices move you over to the app automatically. That behavior comes from your device, not AMC+. Your device OS thinks of it as a convenience, assuming that you would always rather use the app than the mobile website).
