FX in Australia: How to stream the US network’s TV shows

If you're fixing for FX, your options aren't too broad in Australia but there are a few services with a big slice of the FX pie.

While primo US networks AMC and HBO funnel their content down under via News Corp's satellite service Foxtel, the premium television provided by FX (a subsidiary of 21st Century Fox) has been a little more elusive over the years.

The quick brown FX jumped over the lazy SVODs in Australia a few times over. Most recently, huge US TV shows like American Horror Story: Cult, Trust and Pose all failed to debut in Australia in a timely fashion. AHS: Cult launched on 26 July 2018, nearly 10 months after the seventh season premiered in the US.

At the time of writing, only 17 of FX's 49 TV shows are available to stream in Australia and 10 TV shows, including 2018's Pose and Trust, aren't available to stream or download through any legitimate channel at all in Australia (not even iTunes or Google Play). Foxtel tells us they are arriving later this year.

With that said, Foxtel claims its Showcase channel is the home of FX in Australia and fair play, it does house more FX than any other provider with 12 titles ready to stream.

If you're an FX fan looking for a quick fix, check the table below for where you can stream every available FX show in Australia (and noted the ones that are MIA).
