MGM Channel was a 24-hour global-based network that was launched in 1999 by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios that airs movies from MGM's celebrated library – the second film library in the world, including West Side Story, Midnight Cowboy, The Terminator, The Manchurian Candidate, The Black Stallion, amongst many others. The network has access to the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer library of films, comprising approximately 4,000 titles, and over 10,400 episodes of television programming.

Following AMC Networks' acquisition of Chellomedia, it was announced on 4 August 2014 that MGM Channel would be rebranded as AMC in late 2014. On November 5, 2014, MGM became a Hungarian Version of AMC.[1]

As of 2015, MGM Channel has been indirectly found out to have continued airing in Ireland, Austria, Switzerland, Germany, Iceland and some other countries.[citation needed]

On January 1, 2015, the Asian version of AMC was launched, replacing MGM in Asia and also in Sri Lanka for the first time it received AMC.[citation needed]
