It's here. AHS:NYC is set to terrorize the Big Apple. Tonight, you can watch American Horror Story season 11 online, even if you don't have cable. Ryan Murphy's FX anthology series returns with some familiar favorites and fresh faces. Unlike last year's Double Feature, season 11 will have one storyline set in different time periods. 

AHS:NYC start time, channel

American Horror Story season 11 premieres at 10 p.m. ET/PT tonight (Oct. 19) on FX (via Sling or Fubo).

American Horror Story season 11 is the first installment set in New York City. As usual, Murphy has remained mum on plot details. FX Chairman John Landgraf previously confirmed, "It actually takes place in different timelines but it’s one subject, one story, with a beginning, middle and an end, like many of the prior stories."

AHS:NYC features a cast stocked with Murphy regulars, like Billie Lourd, Denis O'Hare, Zachary Quinto and Leslie Grossman. Other cast members are making their AHS universe debuts, including Kal Penn and Russell Tovey. But Murphy faves Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters will not be making appearances this season.

How to watch AHS:NYC in the US

In the U.S., viewers can watch American Horror Story season 11 premiere Wednesday (Oct. 19) at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FX. AHS:NYC will air weekly at the same time.

FX can be accessed with a cable package. 

If you've already cut the cord and don't have cable, you can access FX on multiple live TV streaming services including Sling TV, Fubo TV, YouTube TV, Hulu With Live TV and DirecTV Stream.

We recommend Sling and Fubo, two of the best streaming services. Sling is the more affordable option, but Fubo offers a broader channel lineup.

Sling TV:

Sling TV: Sling Blue carries FX and many other top channels. Right now, new subscribers get half off their first month. After that, the service costs $35 per month, a very reasonable price for live TV.


Fubo.TV is one of the best live TV services out there. With the Pro Plan ($70  per month), you get over 120 channels, including local broadcast networks and top cable brands like FX, AMC, HGTV, ESPN, Syfy and Paramount Network. 

After airing live on FX, American Horror Story season 11 episodes are available to stream the next day on Hulu.
