It's finally time to watch American Crime Story season 3 on FX. The "Impeachment" chapter of the true-crime anthology series is about to kick off again — and it's got a story that's more than familiar to everyone who had a television or a newspaper during the 1990s.

American Crime Story season 3 start time, channel

American Crime Story Impeachment's debut 90-minute episode "Exiles" airs today (Tuesday, September 7).
• 10 p.m. ET and PT
• U.S. — Watch on FX via Sling or Fubo.TV
• Watch anywhere — try ExpressVPN 100% risk free

The first episode, "Exiles," has a brief synopsis online, which reads "White House staffer Linda Tripp is moved to the Pentagon." Tripp will be played by Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story), while Monica Lewinsky is played by Beanie Feldstein (Booksmart, Lady Bird) and Paula Jones is portrayed by Annaleigh Ashford (Masters of Sex). 

American Crime Story: Impeachment (at least from what we know about it so far) is most notable for giving us a different point of view of the Bill Clinton impeachment saga. Early reports say that the supporting cast does some of the best work of the series, including Billy Eichner cast as Matt Drudge. Cobie Smulders is also on hand as Ann Coulter.

So expect to be entertained, but don't expect a whole lot of new revelations. One of the more interesting through-lines of the show will be the tension in Tripp and Lewinsky's relationship. Does she care? Is she using her?

How to watch American Crime Story season 3 in the US

In the U.S., viewers can watch the 90-minute American Crime Story season 3 premiere today (Tuesday, September 7) at 10 p.m. ET and PT on FX, which comes 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 AT&T TV Now.

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:
Cheaper Live TV

Sling TV:  New subscribers can get the service for just $10 for the first month. The Sling Blue package (regularly $35) carries FX, as well as other top channels like AMC, CNN, Fox News, HGTV and TNT.


Fubo.TV is one of the best live TV services out there. With the Starter Plan ($65 per month), you get over 120 channels, including local broadcast networks and top cable brands like FX, AMC, HGTV, ESPN, Syfy and Paramount Network. 

How to watch American Crime Story season 3 in the UK

We've got both good and bad news for Brits. On the upside, American Crime Story season 3 is expected to air across the pond (previous seasons were on BBC Two).

The bad news? We don't have a date. Previously, American Crime Story seasons have either aired in the same month (O.J.) or the following month (Versace). That means you shouldn't have to wait long. 

If you want to watch with other services you've already paid for while traveling abroad, ExpressVPN will help you get access to them.

How to watch American Crime Story season 3 in Canada

Canadians can watch American Crime Story season 3 on FX Canada, if they get the channel through their cable provider. 

Travelers who have already subscribed to other services can get access to them with the help of ExpressVPN.
