Call it the House The Simpsons Built: Shortly after FX’s sister network FXX launched in 2013, it won ample four-fingered applause with a record-breaking, perfectly cromulent marathon of all 552 episodes of the iconic animated sitcom. Many “Woo hoos!” followed. But FXX also boasts its own top-notch comedies, from the weirdly-resonant-while-proudly-misanthropic You’re The Worst to the long-running meme factory that is Archer to the peerless It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
Fortunately, you no longer need cable—teacher, mother, secret lover—to enjoy the bounty of FXX. Grab a live TV streaming subscription and you can enjoy the network in real time. That will also allow you to use your subscription to access FXX’s FXNOW app, letting you stream the network’s library of content whenever you like. That includes, of course: Every. Episode. Ever. Of The Simpsons. Everything’s coming up Milhouse!
Here’s everything you need to know to watch FXX online.
Best Shows on FX/FXX
FXX Live Stream: Where to watch FXX online
There are a number of live TV streaming services that offer FXX. So how do you decide which one is right for you? Well, that depends on your budget, what other channels you just can’t live without, and what device (or devices) you plan on streaming with. We cover all of those essential issues below. But don’t worry: No matter which service you select, you’ll be able to start with a one-week trial, allowing you to watch FXX for free.
FXX on Hulu with Live TV
Hulu Live TV is a great way to stream live TV, as it comes with access to Hulu’s massive library of on-demand content.

FXX 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.
To watch FXX, you’ll want to dock in at the FuboTV Standard level.
|Family with Showtime||$74.99 ($69.99 for first 3 mos.)|
