Archer, FXX’s Emmy(R) Award winning animated series, became available today to subscribers of the FX+ commercial-free service, it was announced today by Chuck Saftler, President, Program Strategy and COO, FX Networks. The first seven seasons of Archer are ready to view on the commercial-free FX+ service. The most recent season, Archer: Dreamland, will be added to FX+ in February ahead of the premiere of the ninth season, Archer: Danger Island.
Archer was created by Adam Reed and Floyd County Productions and is executive produced by Reed and Matt Thompson. Produced by FX Productions, it features the voices of Reed along with H. Jon Benjamin, Jessica Walter, Aisha Tyler, Judy Greer, Chris Parnell, Amber Nash and Lucky Yates.
FX+ is the commercial-free, on-demand hub for all seasons of almost every current and library title of FX and FXX original series. The service is currently available to Comcast Xfinity TV and Cox Contour subscribers who upgrade their service to include FX+ in their video package for $5.99 per month.
In addition to exclusively offering complete in-season stacking rights to all of its current original series commercial free, FX+ makes FX Networks the first basic cable portfolio to offer every season of almost every title in its original series library. FX+ features every season of 31 FX original series or more than 1,300 episodes of award-winning and acclaimed original programs spanning the past 15 years. Due to the number of episodes in the FX Networks library, the shows will be rolled out over a period of time and it is expected that the complete FX+ roster will be available in 2018.”
FX is proceeding as normal after the Disney-FOX merger as of now, but one would have to expect a merging of the three networks, FXM, FXX, and FX proper to come sooner rather than later. NBC Universal has done similar to getting rid of the Esquire and Chiller, so unless if a major overhaul in content is coming on any of the networks, expect to see the same.
