Xbox One gets week early access to new FX show Chozen

The first episode of Chozen will be made available a week prior to its TV debut through the Xbox One FXNOW app.

On Jan. 13, FX will air the premiere episode of its new show, Chozen, but Xbox One owners will be able to watch it a week early, on Jan. 6, exclusively through the FXNOW app for Xbox One.

There are a lot of ways to watch television using Xbox One. You can plug your cable feed directly into the system, or you can use Verizon's app to stream up to 74 channels. However, the early Chozen premiere will be available only through the FXNOW app.

You'll also need to be an Xbox Live Gold member and customer of AT&T U-Verse, Comcast, Cablevision, Suddenlink, or WOW. In addition to Chozen, subscribers to these providers can use their credentials on the Xbox One FXNOW app to get free, next-day access to FX shows.

Chozen is an animated comedy from the creators of Archer and Eastbound & Down. It follows the exploits of Chozen, a gay white rapper fresh out of prison who's trying to make it in the not quite hospitable world of rap music. Saturday Night Live's Bobby Moynihan voices Chozen. Comedian Hannibal Bures, actor Michael Peña, and rapper Cliff “Method Man” Smith also star in the show.

These will be the kind of "exclusives" that Xbox one customers can look forward to. Another reason why I switched over to ps4. Best gaming decision I ever made.

Looks like another 10 points to Xbox! What's the score now? Let's add it up:

Games and Exclusives: Xbox wins +10

Hardware: Xbox wins +10

Overdelivered Value: Xbox wins +10

Features: Xbox wins +10

Overheating: PS4 wins -10


So that's what, like Xbox: 40 to PS4: -10.

Kind of a bad deal for most of those who watch the show regularly and might hear some spoilers for it on forums or news etc, from regular users to trolls

All the 'gamers' must be thrilled.

Show looks way too childish, and I like childish humour! Hip-hop is awful, and rap is crap--pretty much all music sucks except for my own. (:

I love Archer but judging from the little preview of Chozen its kinda meh. Best of luck to those who are making the series but don't count on me to really watch it.

Sony used New Year's Eve to promote next summer's cartoon The Amazing Spider-Man 2.



Sony doesn't care about gamers.

@mattress805  So early access to things is suddenly a bad thing?  Leave it to fanboys to spin things like this into something else.

@mattress805 That's why TitanFall from EA is an XB1 exclusive? That's why Dead Rising 3 from Capcom is an exclusive? Sounds like you're talking out of your ass to me.


You made a very DUMB decision switching from Xbox to PS4. I own both consoles and the XB1 is leagues better than the PS4 right now. Like it's not even a comparison. The ONLY good thing that Playstation does better is the free games on PS+. But being the PS4 is so new, there's nothing great to speak of.

A reason to pass on an Xbox One is early access to a TV show? Sounds like the fanboys and haters will use anything to bitch and complain about the Xbox.

@WingChopMasta Sony is at the CES to show their HDTV's, Blu-Ray players and other electronics. They won't be showing anything Playstation. Microsoft has their own shows for Surface, software and their phones.

@deathstream The same could said about anyone in the gaming industry. No one is a saint in this day and age.

@sol_invictus55 What is wrong with you? 

Perverts can also be hetero, you shouldnt judge people for their sexual preference.

You're completely wrong. I've had my Xbox 360 since 2006. Microsoft treats their customers like shit. They love casual gamers like you. Xbox live is littered with ads that we pay for. And Kinect sucks dude. It's a crappy motion peripheral that they force you to buy. And I've have Microsoft sync in my car's for years... Their voice technology sucks I quit using it years ago. You're sucker keep drinking the Kool-Aid. TV TV TV motion controls. Microsoft sucks now. And they have for the last two or three years. Their best developer Bungie has a long-term exclusively deal with Sony. Wake up. I Have 70 people on my friends list and you know how many people have Xbox ones? One

But apparently we have a serious outbreak of pregnant teenaged boys.  Sol is just moody because of his hormones.  I am guessing he is about 4 months along by his level of hysteria.

@deathstream @sol_invictus55

No a hiphop cartoon on XboxLive is aimed at kids. They are trying to convince kids that homosexuality and pervertness is ok. Wonder why teen pregnacy and pedophiles is such a problem in America?

@berserker66666@perceptive_yoda@sol_invictus55Actually, according to gynecologists I know, being exposed to opposing gender hormones in utero can influence how your brain is wired. In other words, if you're, say, male and exposed to certain female hormones all your life, it can wire you to become attracted to men. Anyway, that's what a lot of recent brain studies are showing.


There is validity in studies suggesting the sheer amount of hormones found in food and even some types of preservatives are having a negative effect on the population. FDA and such say the current levels are okay, but a recent study in rats showed you only need to take 1/20th of the recommended FDA approved amount of whatever chemical for the hormones to affect you.



As for the topic...more games, less TV shows.

@perceptive_yoda@sol_invictus55 Another point I would like to add is every child between ages 10-13 becomes sexually curious and starts to experiment with their sexuality. Usually they experiment that with themselves or with someone he/she is close to/loves. (Hence the childhood boyfriend/girlfriend). Now in rare cases, some people, due to parent/social influences become uncomfortable with the opposite gender, therefore, experiment their sexuality with the same sex. If they like it, continues to pursue it without further intervention from parents/teachers/friends/societies, he turns to homosexuality.

@perceptive_yoda@berserker66666@sol_invictus55 Ok, first of all, we are not like animals. Second, I get you a million bucks that people aren't born homos. It is the absolute truth. People don't want to acknowledge the facts cause then homos would be shunned by society. They are influenced by their parents and surrounding environment.

@berserker66666 @perceptive_yoda @sol_invictus55 It hasnt been proven, and some animals are homosexual, t is in nature.

@sol_invictus55 There are few cartoon shows which shows family value like The Simpsons (Well at times). But I get your view. There is a percentage of media dedicated to perverted shows but that's a minority. Also AIDS can be inflicted even amongst Hetro....

perceptive_yoda
perceptive_yoda

@sol_invictus55 AIDS is not most commonly among homosexuals, it is just a myth propagated by mcarthistic propaganda, and there is nothing wrong with being homosexual.


I am going to flag you, i can't tolerate people like you.
