TCA: FX Begins Rollout Of Mobile App

FXNow Launching Online And On Comcast, Cablevision, Other MVPDs 1/14/2014 12:41 PM Eastern

FX has begun the rollout of its mobile "TV Everywhere" app, FXNow, the network said during its Winter TCA Press Tour session in Pasadena, Calif., Tuesday.

The mobile offering will allow authenticated subscribers of participating MVPDs access to one of four different combinations to the FX suite of channels -- FX, FXX and FXM -- depending on which channels they receive through their service provider. The rollout includes a web portal on each network's website.

FX said at some point this year, the app and its web portals would provide live-streaming capability for all networks.

FX said as of now, the FXNow service would be available to roughly 50% of subscribers, with major MVPDs AT&T U-verse, Cablevision's Optimum TV, Comcast and Suddenlink on board at launch. FXNow will rollout to other service providers next year.

The app is available for download through iOS devices, Xbox One and Windows 8, with availability coming to Android, Xbox 360, Roku and Samsung devices in the second quarter of this year. (Pictured: Timothy Olyphant in FX's Justified.)
