Items you will need

  • Computer with Web access

  • Subscription to a cable or satellite TV service

The FX channel is a pay television channel and part of the FX Network. The FX channel features action movies, such as "Hancock," and original programming such as "Archer," "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" and "Justified." You can only access the FX channel if you subscribe to a pay television service, such as cable or satellite, that carries that channel as part of its programming lineup. The FX channel provides information on which providers carry its content.

Launch your Web browser and enter FXnetworks.com in the address bar. Hit "Enter" to navigate to the website.

Scroll down to the bottom of the screen and find the header "FX Shows." Click the link to "Get FXHD and FXVOD."

Enter your zip code and select the name of your pay television provider. Click "Go." A box will pop up showing you which channel has FX.

Tune your television to the channel in the results box. If you do not have that channel, call your television provider's customer service line and upgrade your service to the package that carries that channel.

Tip

  • If you do not currently have a pay television subscription, you can still get FX by subscribing to a service. Call the customer service line of the cable or satellite provider of your choice and ask them for the package with the FX channel.

    If your provider does not carry FX, contact the customer service line and ask when or if they will carry the channel or to find out the terms for switching your subscription to another carrier.

Tip

  • Some carriers may have a service contract with early cancellation fees, or fees for switching services. Always find out the terms of your membership before making any changes to your plan.
