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:
- Use a computer and web browser
- Go to www.amcplus.com/activate
- Enter your email, password and the code from your TV
- 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).
