The nation’s largest cable operator in June launched a similar ad-free service for AMC called AMC Premiere, which costs $4.99 a month.

Called FX+, the FX service will cost $5.99 a month and be available on Xfinity On Demand, the Xfinity Stream app and website, and FXNOW.

FX said its ad-free edition will include the majority of its original series library, such as The Americans, Fargo, American Horror StoryDamagesIt’s Always Sunny in PhiladelphiaThe LeagueLegionLouieNip/TuckRescue Me, The ShieldSons of Anarchy and Terriers.

Due to the number of episodes in the FX Networks library, FX said, 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.

In the future, FX+ will also offer select series in 4K as well as temporary downloads of current season episodes.

FX, and AMC, are hoping that enough viewers will want to pay to watch their shows without advertising, particularly live.

However, the $5-$6-a-month price tag may be a bit steep, considering that on-demand services from Hulu, Amazon and Netflix are only a few dollars more per month and they offer far more programming.
