When you're a fan of big movies, then FXM certainly is one of those channels that has it all for you - blockbusters, quirky films, and more. So, if you're planning on switching to watching TV over the Internet, then we can help you also watch FXM without cable.

The way to go about this is to subscribe to an over-the-top (OTT) platform after you've cut the cord with your cable provider. They're easy to use, fast, only rely on the Internet, come with included DVR space, and, perhaps their best feature, they can be quit in the blink of an eye.

FXM is present on 5 live streaming platforms, and we're going to help you figure out which.
