Comcast and FX Networks will launch FX+, a new service that will allow Xfinity TV subscribers to upgrade to a platform featuring commercial-free current seasons of every FX and FXX original series and every season of many current and legacy library titles of FX originals. FX+ will launch on September 5th and Xfinity TV customers can add the new service to their video package for $5.99 per month.
In addition to offering complete in-season stacking rights to all of its current original series commercial free, FX Networks is now the first ad-supported cable portfolio to offer all seasons of the majority of its original series library, “American Horror Story,” “Damages,” “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” “The League,” “Legion,” “Louie” “Nip/Tuck,” “Rescue Me,” “The Shield,” “Sons of Anarchy” and “Terriers.”
FX+ will feature more than 1100 episodes of original programs spanning the past 15 years from the FX library. The shows will be rolled out over a period of time and it is expected that the complete FX+ roster will be available in 2018. FX+ subscribers will be able to access the FX+ content via Xfinity On Demand, the Xfinity Stream app and website, and FXNOW. In the future, FX+ will also offer select series in 4K as well as temporary downloads of current season episodes.
