Following the news that Disney and Charter Communications signed a new carriage contract for Spectrum cable customers, unfortunately, some channels including FXX and Freeform are now no longer being carried by Spectrum.
This has led to an issue for fans of the animated FX series, “Archer”, which has recently returned with new episodes for its final season on the FXX channe, as Spectrum customers could no longer watch the channel.
But Disney has announced that it has found a work around and has expanded the availability of its 14th and final season by making episodes available post-premiere on VOD systems for the FX and FXX linear channels as well as streaming next day on Hulu.
The first four episodes of season 14 are being made available via VOD for subscribers to the linear FX and FXX channel, adding to their ongoing availability on Hulu, where users can continue to stream season 14 and all prior seasons.
“Archer” returns this Wednesday, September 20th, with episode 5 of the final season, “Keys Open Doors:” An unplanned vacation forces Lana to accompany Archer, Pam and Cyril on a mission that quickly goes off the rails. Will Lana blow the mission when she crosses the line? Written by Miles Woods.
“Archer” is an animated, half-hour comedy that follows Sterling Archer as he navigates the changing landscape of the spy world. This season, Archer and The Agency are finding their own way with Lana at the helm. Her goal is to make money while also making the world a better place, but she quickly finds out running a spy agency isn’t so cut and dry.
