FX Channel – What You Need To Know
When you subscribe to Spectrum cable TV, you sign up to get access to a wide range of American pay television networks, and the FX channel is one of them. FX, owned by the Walt Disney Television unit of the Walt Disney Company, endeavors to compete with premium American networks such as HBO®—both in terms of maturity of concept and quality of production. It is this commitment to the all-round quality of programming that the network is able to broadcast global favorites like American Horror Story and American Crime Story.
Launched in 1994 FX channel focused on original programming broadcast Live, as well as re-runs of classic TV shows from the 60s, 70s and 80s. Following a relaunch in 1997 the channel aired Fox shows such as the X-Files and Married with Children as well as 20th Century Fox productions like Buffy the Vampire Slayer and M*A*S*H*. Sport content was also included—major League Baseball games and NASCAR races. But, there was not much FX could boast of in terms of original content. In early 2000s FX got the much awaited break and emerged as a force to reckon with as far as original pay-tv content was concerned—e.g. police drama The Shield, and Nip/Tuck which depicted two plastic surgeons. During this period, shows created by FX were applauded by the critics for strong storylines and characters. And, also attracted viewership. Albeit, there was much criticism of some content that aimed to push boundaries of what can be shown on TV. Concerns from organizations like the Parents Television Council and American Family Association were raised and advertisers asked to boycott shows that aired graphic content.
From thereon, FX was on a roll—the hit documentary Super Size Me, and then 30 Days which was more like a reality show with subjects placed in uncomfortable situations for 30 days—comedy shows like Starved and It is always sunny in Philadelphia, which were pitched as the ‘’ dark side of comedy”—and more original content revolving around reality TV and drama.
Today, FX channel brings you theatrically released movies from 20th Century Fox and other film studios—which take up a good chunk of Primetime as well as that of the weekend schedule. You can also watch reruns of famous sitcoms such as Two and a Half Men and How I Met Your Mother. With its original drama, comedy, docuseries, and a great selection of feature films, in 2018 FX reached over 89 million U.S. households via a pay-tv subscription.

FX channel’s anthology horror series “American Horror Story” is known for getting gruesome and unsettling with every new season. The series originally released in 2011, has been aired for nine seasons straight. Season 10 is also in development, but due to production being hampered by the COVID circumstance, we are yet to know when it is scheduled to air. Every AHS season has a new story to tell, and is a self-contained miniseries, with different characters and a different setting while the storyline has its own twists and turns. It all started with a haunted murder house and escalated to a murky summer camp soon to be targeted by a serial killer on the loose.
Crime TV series are aplenty but the genre is exactly what FX channel does the best. Snowfall was picked up by FX in 2016 and has earned itself three seasons so far. The TV show was renewed for a fourth season, but due to the COVID situation, its release has been pushed to 2021. The release date however remains indefinite. Snowfall’s plotline is centered on the very first crack epidemic faced by the U.S. in the 80s. The TV show gets glum by each episode as it focuses on the grim outcome of a drug epidemic that cripples a city’s culture.
Starring Donald Glover, the comedy-drama TV series premiered in 2016 and has been greenlit for the third and fourth seasons. It is however not known as of yet whether the third season will premier anytime in 2021 due to production being pushed back by the COVID situation. The TV show revolves around Donald Glover who plays Earn Marks—a man whose life is nothing out of the ordinary. Jobless, roofless and hopeless, Earn tries to recover his repute in front of his ex-girlfriend, their daughter, and his family. How does he plan to do so? By helping his cousin, a potentially budding rapper, reach the stardom he deserves.
