Manhattan: Second AMC freebie on Freeview channel 59

Acclaimed drama Manhattan will debut this week on BT's AMC UK channel. Viewers with Freeview are being invited to sample episode 1 before the rest of the series goes behind the paywall.

In the second AMC freebie since BT Showcase launched last summer (Fear the Walking Dead was the first), Manhattan episode 1 will be shown at 9pm on Tuesday 5th January 2016 on Freeview channel 59.

Manhattan has the backdrop of the race to build the world’s first atomic bomb and follows the brilliant but flawed scientists and their families in a remote location in Los Alamos, New Mexico, as they attempt to coexist in a world where secrets and lies infiltrate every aspect of their lives.

For viewers who want to see the whole series, AMC from BT is available to viewers who subscribe to BT's YouView based TV service and via Sky as part of the BT Sport package.

On Saturday 9th January, BT Showcase will feature its first free-to-air sporting fixture of 2016, with live coverage from the Aviva Premiership from 2:30pm.
