Common Questions

How do I log into my TV provider?

After selecting your participating TV provider, sign in using your TV provider user name and password. You can gain access to all full episodes and movies from FX, FXX and FXM (based on your TV subscription).

Which episodes require me to login with my TV provider?

Once a user logs in to their TV provider, how long can they remain logged into their account?

The amount of time a user remains logged into their account with access to full episodes varies from TV provider to TV provider. Generally, TV providers grant a 30-day period that allows users to remain logged in after initial log in.

How do I configure parental restrictions for the content?

Once you are logged into a TV provider, click on the ‘Settings’ link in the menu, and then on the Parental Controls tab.

What if I forget my PIN to change my parental controls?

If you forget your PIN, select the ‘change your PIN’ link in the Parental Control tab on the Settings page.

Why can’t I create a higher parental control setting than the one set with my TV provider?

The rating that you set with your TV provider is set as a default for the web. On the FX website, you cannot set a rating higher than the one established with your TV provider. However, you can set a lower rating for the web. If you would like to set a higher Parental Control setting for the web, contact your TV provider.

How can I upgrade my subscription to access more movies on FXM?
