Bold programming, blockbuster movies, breakout hits – destination viewing takes on a new meaning with the debut of FX Canada. Launching Monday, Oct. 31 at 9pm ET/PT (8CT, 7MT) with American Horror Story, the premium specialty channel will broadcast critically-acclaimed programming including FX acquired series, movies and original Canadian series.
“Showcasing world-class content, FX Canada is an example of our continued commitment to bringing Canadians the best television has to offer,” said Scott Moore, President of Broadcasting, Rogers Media. “With award-winning series, ground-breaking hits and unique content never before seen in Canada, we’re establishing FX Canada as a leading source for out-of-the-box, engaging and entertaining programming night after night.”
Headlining the launch of FX Canada is the highly-anticipated new drama series American Horror Story from the producers of Nip/Tuck and Glee, Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk.
