Thankful for American Horror Story! Available Today in the US

It’s Thanksgiving week, so what’s a blog post without giving thanks for certain things in your life?  I’m thankful for the typical: family, friends, good health, and my job (this is not because this is my employer’s blog, although I figure, it can’t hurt).  I’m also thankful for the less essential, yet still appreciated things like new albums from The Killers and Mumford & Sons, seasonal gingerbread lattes, and incredible TV shows like American Horror Story, which is available today in the US!

We’re thrilled to bring our US subscribers FX’s hit show, American Horror Story!  For those of you not familiar with the critically-acclaimed show, we know you’ll enjoy watching the Harmon family as they move from Boston to Los Angeles seeking relief from their messy pasts, only to find out that they have taken up residence in a house haunted by its former residents. Gripping and scary, this present-day story stars Dylan McDermott, Connie Britton, Taissa Farmiga, and many others including a performance by Jessica Lange as Constance Langdon, which earned her Golden Globe, SAG, and Emmy awards! Be sure to keep an eye out for Kate Mara, who also stars in the Netflix Original Series House of Cards, arriving on February 1.

Happy Thanksgiving!
