FX and FXX are known primarily for airing comedies and dramas with an edge like It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Archer, and What We Do in the Shadows and Fargo. FXM is the part of the FX family of networks that is dedicated to films that echo the edge of its programming.

Just what kind of movies are available to stream on FXM? Thrilling sci-fi movies such as Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Alien Covenant. Non-stop action movies like Kingsman: The Secret Service, The Hunstman: Winters War, and Assassin’s Creed. And of course side-busting comedies like Popstar: Never Stop Stopping and Pixels. Like any great movie channel, the library gets an almost constant refresh of both recent blockbusters and classics alike.

Here’s everything you need to know to watch an FXM live stream.

FXM on FuboTV

FuboTV started as a streaming service geared toward sports fans, but it’s evolved into a broadly-appealing option with entertainment and news options alongside its robust sports choices. Depending on the package, you can access as many as 180+ FuboTV channels. If you’re looking to be entertained, Bravo, IFC, MTV, and VH1 are options even at Fubo’s most basic tier. The Fubo channel list still includes plenty of sports, including the Fubo Sports Network, which has original programming mixing sports and humor. The FuboTV cost starts at $54.99 a month, and with Disney Media favorites like ABC, ESPN, and the Disney Channel now on board, some who were on the fence about Fubo are giving it another look.
