FX Networks Partners with Comcast to Launch a New Television Service on September 5th

FX+ Will Feature Ad-Free, Uninterrupted Viewing -- On Demand -- 17 Original Series in their Current Season as well as Every Season of 16 Current or Legacy Library FX Originals - more than 1000 episodes - to Xfinity TV Customers Who Upgrade Their FX Subscription for $5.99 Per Month

PHILADELPHIA & LOS ANGELES -- Comcast and FX Networks will launch FX+, a new service that will allow Xfinity TV subscribers to upgrade to a platform featuring commercial-free current seasons of every FX and FXX original series and every season of many current and legacy library titles of FX originals, it was announced today by John Landgraf, CEO, FX Networks and FX Productions and Matt Strauss, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Video and Entertainment Services, Comcast Cable.

FX+ will launch on September 5th and Xfinity TV customers can add the new service to their video package for $5.99 per month. In addition to offering complete in-season stacking rights to all of its current original series commercial free, FX Networks is now the first ad-supported cable portfolio to offer all seasons of the majority of its original series library, including award-winning and acclaimed hits such as American Horror Story, Damages, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The League, Legion, Louie, Nip/Tuck, Rescue Me, The Shield, Sons of Anarchy and Terriers. FX+ will feature more than 1100 episodes of award-winning and acclaimed original programs spanning the past 15 years. Due to the number of episodes in the FX Networks library, the shows will be rolled out over a period of time and it is expected that the complete FX+ roster will be available in 2018. FX+ subscribers will be able to access the FX+ content via Xfinity On Demand, the Xfinity Stream app and website, and FXNOW. In the future, FX+ will also offer select series in 4K as well as temporary downloads of current season episodes.

"This is an exciting day for FX Networks, because it represents the next step in building a consumer experience as good as our original programming brand," said Landgraf. "We have been diligent about recapturing the in-season stacking rights for all current original programming and recapturing the rights to all seasons of a large portion of our legacy of great original series. Since changing the course of basic cable TV with The Shield, over the past 15 years FX amassed a roster of dramas, comedies and limited series that is unequalled in ad-supported television - and in quality and breadth has few rivals anywhere. This initiative represents the first of its kind for an ad-supported cable network, and begins to put us on equal footing with premium networks and streaming services. We appreciate our partnership with Matt Strauss and everyone at Comcast who had the vision to support the creation and launch of FX+, which adds significant value for Comcast and its subscribers."

Over the past three years, FX Networks has won more Emmy(R) Awards than Netflix and Amazon combined. In 2016, FX set a basic cable record with 56 Emmy nominations and it won 18 Emmy Awards, which was second only to HBO (22) and double the total of Netflix. This year FX won more Golden Globe(R) Awards than any network including HBO. Since 2014, FX has earned 196 Emmy nominations and won 34 Emmys.

"FX has built a brand known for high-quality, award-winning original content and we are pleased to partner with John Landgraf and the team at FX to offer premium experiences like FX+ to Xfinity TV customers, and explore what it means to be a network in the future," said Strauss. "Our innovative platforms and technology enable us to collaborate with our partners to experiment with new ways to super-serve our customers, provide them with more choice and access to new content and experiences, and continue to add value to the Xfinity TV subscription."

FX+ is an upgrade option for Xfinity TV customers to add to their existing FX subscriptions. Xfinity TV customers can upgrade to FX+ via their Xfinity set-top boxes, xfinitytv.com or by calling 1-800-Xfinity.
