Vidgo has now added FMC (Family Movie Classics) to its channel lineup, offering consumers another way to access the classic movies available to watch on the channel.


FMC is already available to stream through a number of live TV streaming services. At the cheaper end, both Frndly TV and Philo carry the channel as part of their lineup. At the more expensive end of the live TV spectrum, FMC was added to DirecTV and DirecTV Stream earlier this year.

Now, Vidgo joins DirecTV Stream as one of the premium live TV streaming services that offer access to FMC. At present, Vidgo has yet to update its website to reflect the change, so it remains unclear whether Family Movie Classics is available to all subscribers or just with select plans.


However, as FETV (which is also owned by Family Broadcasting Corporation) is available with all of Vidgo’s live TV plans, we would expect FMC to be available to all subscribers, including those signed up to the cheapest Plus plan.

VIDGO has been a great partner and we’re delighted to extend the partnership to include FMC,” said Cara Conte, SVP Affiliate Sales of FETV and FMC. “FMC now joins our sister network FETV on the VIDGO lineup and provides us with the opportunity to deliver our beloved content to an even broader audience.”

For those unfamiliar with Family Movie Classics, FMC is a 24/7 channel that provides access to a variety of movies from the 1930s through the 1990s.


In addition to a weekly John Wayne Friday Night Feature, and a Sunday Legends of the West and Primetime Pictures Double Feature, FMC’s August schedule includes Gilda (starring Rita Hayworth), Cowboy (starring Glenn Ford and Jack Lemmon), Bye Bye Birdie (starring Dick Van Dyke and Ann-Margret), and Suddenly, Last Summer (starring Katharine Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor), among others.

John started Streaming Better to help consumers navigate the live TV streaming and subscription service landscape. John has been editing and writing about technology and streaming for online publications since 2014, and believes the best streaming approach is to rotate between services as needed.

John's preferred live TV streaming service right now is YouTube TV although he does tend to switch live TV services multiple times each year to keep up to date with their changes. Outside of live TV, John also actively streams HBO Max (for the shows), Peacock (for Premier League), and Paramount Plus (for Champion's League). However, John is also currently subscribed to Apple TV+, Discovery+, Hulu, Starz, Showtime, and Shudder.
