New FX series will debut exclusively on the Xbox One

The team behind Eastbound & Down is launching a new series on FX called Chozen.

Microsoft has snagged an exclusive for the premiere episode, so owners of the Xbox One can load up their FXNow app January 6th and watch a week before it airs on TV. We don’t expect the cable companies to be too upset though, since, like the Fox Sports Go NFL Playoffs streaming setup you’ll need a subscription with participating TV providers to actually view the episode.
