Luckily I still have cable and have the FX Now app. I only really use it for The Simpsons once in a while and Louie.

Fox should come out with one Big Ass streaming service(then I might be interested). Same goes true for Warner Brothers.

I honestly do not know who this is for. Like that recently announced AMC streaming service, this is ONLY available to cable subscribers. Apparently those who don't mind paying more for what they already get.

re: FX to launch FX+ pay streaming service

Kind of old news, but a I saw a lot of FX shows change their profile pics on social media to advertise FX+

FX is expanding the scope of its ad-free programming hub, FX+, making it available to all of its 90 million U.S. subscribers. Previously, it had been an add-on option only for Comcast and Cox cable customers.

The announcement came as the Fox-owned (for now) network kicked off its day of presentations at TCA summer press tour.

Opting in to the platform will still cost $5.99 a month for all subscribers, who will get all new seasons of FX originals as well as nearly every library series from the network vault. Subscribers can get FX+ through FXNetworks.com and view via web, iOS and Android mobile devices, or stream via Apple TV or Roku.

The move is the latest by traditional programmers aiming to secure their place in a rapidly re-bundling TV ecosystem. AMC Networks yesterday touted the progress of its similar AMC Premiere service, as did CBS with All Access and other streaming networks. CBS expects to have 16 million subscribers to CBS All Access and Showtime’s stand-alone OTT by 2022. FX and other companies are looking to the subscription revenue to counter the downward pressure on advertising as viewership continues to fragment.

Early availability of original episodes is one key lure for subscribers. On September 1, FX+ subscribers will get early access to the pilot of Mayans M.C. before its linear premiere.

In addition to exclusively offering complete, in-season stacking rights to all of its current original series without ads, FX Networks said it is the first basic cable portfolio to offer every season of almost every title in its original library. FX+ features every season of 35 FX original series, totaling more than 1,400 episodes of originals spanning the past 16 years.

The FX originals not available on FX+ are Justified, The Bridge and the first two installments of American Crime Story.

This is carrying some old FX shows like Nip/Tuck that currently don't have streaming deals with Netflix or Hulu.

Signed up for the 7 day free trial. I don't know if I'll stick with it.

I did see that FX Plus will show Mayans MC early.

It is kind of cool though that all the FX shows are in one place as opposed to sifting between Amazon, Netflix and Hulu.
