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.”
