FX on Hulu (branded as simply FX since December 2021) is a content hub on the streaming platform Hulu which offers programming from FX Networks, a subsidiary of the Disney General Entertainment Content segment of The Walt Disney Company.[1] Launched on March 2, 2020, the hub's programming is offered at no extra cost to Hulu subscribers. FX on Hulu features original programming produced by FX specifically for Hulu, in addition to past and current original shows seen on the linear FX and FXX cable networks.[1]

History

2020-2021
2020-2021

In September 2017, FX Networks launched FX+ an ad-free, streaming service exclusive to authenticated subscribers on select cable television providers.[2] Following Disney's acquisition of former-parent company 21st Century Fox, including a controlling stake in Hulu, FX+ was discontinued in August 2019, with most of its content incorporated into Hulu.[3]

In November 2019, it was announced that FX Networks would produce original programming for Hulu; four original shows intended to launch on FX (Devs, Mrs. America, A Teacher and The Old Man) were repurposed as the first "FX on Hulu"-branded originals.[4] As part of the "first phase" from March 2–7, 2020, FX on Hulu rolled out with 40 current and library shows. The initial "FX on Hulu"-branded shows premiered on the FX cable network before being made available on Hulu the next day.[5]

In December 2021, Disney announced that it would discontinue the "FX on Hulu" brand, resulting in the Hulu hub for FX and FXX programming being rebranded as simply "FX" going forward. The rebranding will also apply to Disney+ for international markets.[6]

Programming

Note that The Weekly / The New York Times Presents, which has been sometimes described as an "FX on Hulu" show, was jointly commissioned by FX and Hulu prior to the launch of the FX on Hulu hub, and is introduced with both services' logos, unlike FX on Hulu series which are introduced with only the FX logo.[7][8]

As Hulu is only available in the United States, international availability of FX on Hulu content varies by region. Due to arrangements that predate the launch of Star, the general entertainment content hub on Disney+ that distributes Hulu original programming and FX content outside of the U.S, several FX on Hulu programs may be carried by third-party broadcasters instead.

In parts of Europe, FX on Hulu programming is distributed is through Star on Disney+[citation needed]; in Latin America, programming is available on its sister service Star+[citation needed]; and in India and parts of Southeast Asia, these programs are distributed by Disney+ Hotstar.[24]

In Canada, almost all FX original programming premiere exclusively on the domestic versions of FX and FXX, as part of a previously established relationship between FX Networks and Rogers Sports and Media.[25]

There was some of FX content not available on Disney+ Star in Australia due to a output deal with Binge and its parent Foxtel. It has started ending in April 2022 with its FX shows pulled and migrating to Disney+.
