How to Get an FX Free Trial With a Virtual Credit Card

If you're searching for a way to catch up on your favorite FX show, you may be disappointed to learn that getting an is a bit more complicated than it is for other channels. Fortunately, DoNotPay's free virtual credit card can make another aspect of figuring out how to stream FX content significantly easier.

Does FX Offer a Free Trial?

Like many TV channels in the post-cable era, FX makes its content available online to viewers who may not be able to watch on TV. However, it functions a bit differently to the streaming services offered by other channels. (or even its own streaming service at all) because it has instead partnered with Hulu. Viewers that search for shows to watch on the FX website are directed to FX on Hulu, which brings them to Hulu's regular signup page.

Hulu currently offers three base plans, as well as three options for combining these base plans with other streaming services. Viewers interested in watching FX live would need to sign up for the Hulu + Live TV option, which includes Hulu's full on-demand content library and over 75 channels of live TV streaming, including FX. This option does not offer a free trial. However, many of FX's shows are available on demand as part of a regular Hulu subscription (available in ad supported or ad free versions), which does offer a one-month free trial.

How Can I Get an FX Free Trial?

You can get a free trial of Hulu's basic (ad-supported) or ad-free subscriptions here, which include over 50 popular FX shows. However, there is no free trial available for the Hulu + Live TV subscription.

To sign up for a free trial, you will need to:

  1. Choose your plan
  2. Create an account by entering your name, email address, password, birthday, and gender
  3. Enter your payment information (credit card, debit card, or PayPal)

Does the FX Free Trial Automatically Renew Into a Paid Subscription?

Your Hulu free trial will automatically renew into a paid subscription if you do not cancel your subscription or change your plan by the end of your free trial. Only two options offer a free trial. By signing up for a free trial of Hulu's ad-supported or ad-free base subscription, users can view on-demand FX content. But there is no free trial for any plan that allows viewers to watch FX live.

Avoid Automatic Renewal With DoNotPay Virtual Credit Card

No matter which Hulu subscription sounds like the best option for keeping up with your favorite FX shows, you may decide not to keep it if you do not watch it enough during your free month to justify purchasing another streaming service. You may forget to cancel if you finish the entire series you were interested in during the first week or gravitate toward another streaming service you already have that does offer a live option and find yourself ignoring your on-demand Hulu content. You can cancel your Hulu subscription at any time during your free trial, and you may also request a refund by contacting Hulu's customer service if you forget to cancel before your free trial ends. However, neither of these is a perfect solution if you forget that you signed up for Hulu at all until you notice charges on your account.

DoNotPay's virtual credit card can protect you from accidental charges by providing Hulu with randomly generated payment details that appear to be legitimate when you sign up for your free trial, but will be recognized as invalid if you forget to cancel and Hulu attempts to automatically charge you for a paid subscription.

How Much Does FX Cost After the Free Trial?

The cost of a Hulu subscription varies significantly depending on which plan or bundle you choose. Two of Hulu's base plans offer free trials that will automatically become paid subscriptions if they are not canceled by the end of your free month. You also have four more expensive options for adding live TV or bundling your Hulu base subscription with other basic streaming services, but there is no free trial available for these bundles. Your six options include:

  1. Hulu base subscription with ads
$6.99/month free trial availableincludes on-demand FX content
  1. Hulu base subscription with no ads
$12.99/month free trial availableincludes on-demand FX content

What Will FX’s Charges Look Like on My Statement?

It is important to remember that your charges will show up on your bank and credit card statements as Hulu charges. It may be easy to forget if you did not originally intend to purchase Hulu until after learning that it is your main option for watching FX shows.

What Are the Most Popular Alternatives to FX?

Being forced to purchase Hulu to watch one or two FX shows may not have been what you had in mind, but there are many other streaming services available that may give you more value for your money by offering more of your favorite shows.

You can also use our virtual credit card to try out as many of these services as you want to see what works best for you. Some other popular on-demand or channel-specific streaming services include:

  • Netflix
  • Prime Video
  • Paramount+
