How to activate FXNetworks on Roku, Xbox, Apple TV

FX Networks gives users access to original content, including movies and television shows. You can access any content you want from three select channels that include FXM, FXX, and FX.

But if you want to stream videos on the networks, you must have an account with a participating television provider. You will then have to Activate FXNetworks to proceed.
