BT Vision has added a fourth linear channel in a fortnight by
signing a contract to stream the hugely popular FX UK.
Hot on the heels of the deal to deliver three UKTV channels -
Watch, Gold and Alibi - BT Vision customers will soon be able to
watch FX hit shows such as zombie drama The Walking Dead and cult
vampire smash True Blood. Other top rated shows include Falling
Skies, produced by Hollywood icon Steven Spielberg, and serial
killer series Dexter.
As well as being able to watch all the shows live on FXUK, BT
Vision customers will also be able to watch many of the top shows,
up to seven days after transmission on-demand. They will also be
able to watch library programmes on-demand. FXUK will launch on BT
Vision later in 2012. BT Vision Unlimited subscribers can also look
forward to the first two series of The Walking Dead which will be
coming on-demand to BT Vision later in the year.

which are hugely popular with viewers in the UK and the United
