Montreal, August 21, 2018 – Drama series, award-winning comedies and blockbuster movies: MAX is more than ever the exclusive, must-see destination for the best fiction series on television in French. The exciting new fall programming season on MAX starts August 27th!  And there’s more good news! MAX will be unscrambled by all cable companies for almost a month starting on September 24, just in time to discover the new FX series lineup.



FX on MAX!

Last spring, Groupe V Média reached an agreement with FX, Fox’s specialty channel, that provides privileged access to their extensive catalog of award-winning series, acclaimed by audiences and critics around the world. And MAX is the channel that will be presenting these long-awaited shows in Quebec.

Starting September 24th, Rivalité: Bette et Joan (Fr.), Tu es pire que moi! (Fr.), and the show that has garnered 18 nominations at the upcoming Emmy Awards, L’affaire Gianni Versace: American Crime Story (Fr.), will be presented Monday nights in a prime-time programming block reserved especially for the popular FX shows.


The return of the shows viewers have been waiting for!

In addition to this exclusive new programming offer, MAX subscribers will be delighted to see that their favourites are back!

The intrigues of Chicago Med (Thursday 8 pm), Lucifer (Wednesday 8 pm), The girlfriend experience (Tuesday 10:30 pm), will return August 27th, while Imposteurs will be airing for the first time on MAX, Tuesdays at 8 pm.

Starting in the first week of September, Orange is the new black (Tuesday 9 pm) and Esprits criminels: unité sans frontières (Wednesday 9 pm) will be returning with brand new episodes.

Weekdays, viewers will be able to watch or rewatch Bones (Monday to Friday 6 pm), Le Mentaliste (Monday to Friday 7 pm) and Dr. House (Monday to Thursday 11 pm). Even the most nostalgic among us will be satisfied!

In addition to its popular series, MAX is presenting a wide range of movies this year, from classic to the latest box office hits, which will surely appeal to viewers looking for action and excitement. L’éveil d’un champion (The Blind Side), Sous le soleil de la Toscane (Under the Tuscan Sun), Légende (Legend) et Haute fidélité (High Fidelity) are just a few of the titles presented on MAX this fall.

More than ever, MAX is THE destination to watch the best series and movies on television.
