FXNOW iOS App, Apple TV Gain Support for 'Simpsons World', All 552 Episodes of The Simpsons Available

by

FXNOW, an on-demand video app that features hit movies from Fox networks FX, FXX, and FXM, was today updated to add support for Simpsons World, an FXX feature that allows users to watch all 552 episodes of popular television show The Simpsons.

FXNOW is an on-demand video service featuring Simpsons World, as well as the biggest and best lineup of critically acclaimed dramas, hit comedies and blockbusters movies from 3 networks, FX, FXX and FXM. With the addition of Simpsons World, FXNOW delivers a one-of-a-kind Simpsons experience with access to Every.Episode.Ever. and more, at your fingertips.

Accessing the FXNOW app and the Simpsons World content requires a cable subscription from one of the following TV providers: AT&T U-Verse, Bright House Networks, Comcast XFINITY, Cox, Midcontinent Communications, Optimum, Suddenlink, Time Warner Cable, or WOW!.

Along with airing old episodes from the past 25 seasons, Simpsons World will allow users to watch new episodes of The Simpsons 24 hours after they first air on television.

There's also an FXNOW channel on the Apple TV, which is rumored to be gaining Simpsons World content as well, but thus far, Simpsons World content has not been added to the channel.

FXNow can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

Update: Simpsons World content is now available on the FXNOW channel on the Apple TV.

Yep, Cable monopoly is still popular, lobbyist still enjoying the corruption and Apple still supporting this Monopoly. Tim Cook is not really smart as we all hoped if he was he we make Apple TV more like Amazon Prime bring iTunes to be more like Amazon Prime movie/TV Show streaming or like Netflix, instead he wants to play nice.

All Apple can do is provide the App support, they have ZERO control over whatever deals Networks have with cable providers. I'm not the biggest apple fan but your argument is totally misplaced and really, pretty stupid. Not to mention the same thing applies to Prime, Hulu, Netflix, etc. They all have their own special deals with the networks for their content and pay HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS to secure the rights.

Why would Apple jump into that business when Prime, Netflix and Hulu are already doing it and already spent all the money. Apple would have to pay a few billion to get into the streaming movie/tv game. Why do you think they really bought Beats? They already had a good relationship with providers - which Apple is trying to ruin by playing "hardball."

And before you go on a rant against Cable Channels. They spend billions of dollars to provide content that you presumably enjoy for basically "free." They have to leverage their programming anyway they can and their business model has worked for 70 years, they have zero incentive to change it, just because this new generation are bunch of cheap freeloaders who think everything should be free, however and whenever they want. Or at the very least dirt cheap. Why they pick and choose specific cable providers to work with comes down to those cable providers paying for access to those apps. I don't like it and I've been known to yell and scream about HBO Go not being available on Roku because of Xfinity. Which in of itself would be acceptable if it wasn't already available on various other devices... But that's another argument.

I was with you until here. FREE?? Are you insane? Shows cost money. That money comes from advertising and cable companies paying. Cable companies get their money from subscription costs, advertisers get their money from companies that pay them to advertise, companies get their money from products or services sold.

OR you pay for the show/season pass on Apple. I have NO IDEA where you got "free" out of that. Not even remotely.

Imagine you wanted to have your sink fixed. You call every plumber in town and they all tell you they'll fix your sink and replace your toilet. You say, "but I don't want my toilet replaced. All I want is my sink fixed." They yell at you that you are a cheap free loader and hang up on you. Now, reread your statement. I don't think anyone is demanding these things for free. What I want, and what many people want, is to be able to pay for what we want, not a bunch of crap we don't want. If I want HBO why do I need to pay for a full cable service? All I want is HBO. And I realize you likely weren't around when HBO got started, but you used to be able to get HBO by itself in the late 70's early 80's. So it can happen. Oh, and it is happening, next year. I am buying access the moment it is available on my Apple TV. I assume it won't be long before the "70 year old" model is finally seen as dated, and abandoned.

Another useless app on Apple TV I can not access because I have Charter Communications just like every other app such as HBO Go, Showtime Anytime, Lifetime, Bravo and History channel. Apple has become the ass kissing buddies of cable who knows when they would notice Apple TV only benefit is Hulu+ and Netflix.
