FX Plus Streaming Subscription Service to Shut Down in August
Will subscribers move to Hulu to find their favorite FX shows?
Effective August 21, 2019, the FX+ streaming video subscription service is no more, a victim of Disney’s $71 billion acquisition of 21st Century Fox’s assets. For $5.99 a month, FX+ subscribers had access to more than 1,400 episodes of popular shows including The Shield, Sons of Anarchy, American Horror Story, and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. By shutting down the service, Disney is paving the way for potential subscribers to subscribe to Hulu, which will feature FX Networks content, or their new streaming subscription service, Disney+, set to launch this fall.
