What is authentication?

Authentication (also referred to as “verification”) is the way viewers confirm they are currently subscribed to a participating TV provider. For example, FX is currently allowing next-day, on-demand access to select content to viewers who authenticate with a participating TV provider.


How can I see if I have a participating TV provider?

Visit hulu.com/authenticate to check the latest list of supported cable, satellite and telco TV providers by browsing the options in the drop-down box. This list includes, but is not limited to the providers found to the right.


The list of supported providers will continue to expand, so check back often to see if your TV provider has been added.



How can I tell if an episode requires authentication?

A lock icon will appear on episodes that require authentication. Locked episodes are currently available to Hulu.com viewers on their computer who sign in with a participating TV provider subscription. 


If you have a participating TV provider subscription, you can authenticate by visiting hulu.com/authenticate and selecting your TV provider through the Search For Your Provider section. For specific show information (for example, an episode’s availability), you can find more details under the Availability Notes from a show’s main page (for example, hulu.com/sons-of-anarchy).


How do I authenticate?

If you have a subscription with one of our supported cable or satellite TV providers, you can connect your account by visiting Hulu.com/authenticate

  1. Log in to your Hulu account or connect through Facebook.
  2. Use the “Search For Your Provider” section to enter your cable or satellite provider.
  3. Follow the on-screen prompts to connect your account

*Reference the list of providers to the right to see if yours has opened up access to FX and FXX shows


You will also be directed to the authentication page when you click on either the gray key icon on the thumbnails of an authenticated show or the Connect a TV Provider button that appears on all Hulu show pages.


NOTE: If you log out of your Hulu account, you will be required to re-authenticate your account the next time you log in OR after 30 days. Additionally, if you do not have a participating TV provider account, you will not be able to view FX/FXX content. 



What if I don’t have a subscription with a participating TV provider?

If you don’t have a subscription with a participating TV provider, you will not be able to view FX/FXX content.



Can I watch FX or FXX shows through my Hulu Plus enabled devices?

Current season FX and FXX shows are not available on Hulu Plus enabled devices. These shows are available on the PC only through Hulu.com.


A selection of previous season FX and FXX shows are available on Hulu Plus enabled devices. For more information regarding show and device availability, visit a show's main page (e.x. hulu.com/louie).
