In another casualty of the Walt Disney Co.’s acquisition of most of 21st Century Fox’s assets, “the FX Plus subscription service is shutting down,” Variety reports.
The move comes as “FX’s content is set to get funneled into the Disney controlled Hulu service,” the story says.
The article also notes that FX Plus will no longer be available after Aug. 20, 2019, according to a notice on the service’s website. Initially launched two years ago with Comcast, FX Plus offered subscribers to the $5.99 monthly service ad-free access to more than 1,400 episodes of FX programming, including ‘Atlanta,’ ‘American Horror Story,’ ‘Damages,’ ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,’ ‘The Shield,’ ‘Sons of Anarchy’ and ‘Terriers.’ FX Plus later added Cox Communications as an affiliate.”
