American Crime Story season 3

American Crime Story season 3 is scheduled to premiere on Tuesday, September 7, at 10 PM EST (7 PM PST). Titled Impeachment: American Crime Story, the 10-episode season revolves around the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal. In this post, we’ll be explaining where you can watch American Crime Story season 3 online. Moreover, we’ll cover how to do this from anywhere in the world by connecting to a VPN.

It’s not uncommon to find unauthorized streams of popular TV shows such as American Crime Story. However, we should emphasize that we’re only recommending official sources for watching American Crime Story season 3. Unlicensed streams provide a low-quality experience and are often plagued by performance issues. Many are even taken offline for copyright infringement. Fortunately, the official sources listed in this post don’t have the same problems!

American Crime Story season 3 will only be shown on region-locked platforms. If you want to continue watching via your usual streaming services while traveling abroad, you’ll need a VPN.

How to watch American Crime Story season 3 online with a VPN

Unfortunately, the content on most streaming services is subject to copyright restrictions which results in it being geo-restricted. A VPN allows you to bypass this geo-blocking and access it from abroad.

Here’s how to watch American Crime Story season 3 from anywhere:

  1. You’ll need to start by signing up with a VPN provider. We recommend NordVPN. However, Surfshark and ExpressVPN are excellent, low-cost alternatives.
  2. Next, make sure you download and then install the VPN app that’s compatible with your streaming device. The above VPNs allow multiple simultaneous connections.
  3. Open the VPN app before connecting to a server in the US. By getting a US IP address, you’ll be able to unblock and watch FX from anywhere in the world.
  4. Go to FX and sign in via your TV provider. Don’t have cable TV? You can also watch FX cable-free via select TV streaming services (more on these further below).
  5. Clearing your browser’s cookies may be necessary for changes to take effect. Still doesn’t work? Connect to another server in case your IP address is blacklisted.

Remember that American Crime Story season 3 will air live on FX. We recommend you test your VPN with FX ahead of the season 3 premiere. That way, you should have time to troubleshoot any issues with your VPN’s customer support service.


NordVPN is offering a fully-featured risk-free 30 day trial if you sign up at this page. You can use the VPN rated #1 for FX with no restrictions for a month - great if you’re still undecided and want to fully test it out before making a commitment.

There are no hidden terms - just contact support within 30 days if you decide NordVPN isn't right for you and you'll get a full refund. Start your NordVPN trial here.


Where to watch American Crime Story season 3 in the US and Canada

American Crime Story season 3 is set to premiere in the US and Canada on FX. This is scheduled for September 10 at 10 PM EST, with new episodes airing weekly. There are a couple of ways in which you can watch FX online. If you have a cable TV subscription that includes FX, all you need to do is sign in via your TV provider. You can then watch live online at no extra cost via the FX website or FXNOW app.

Fortunately, it’s also possible to watch FX cable and contract-free. In order to do this, you’ll need to sign up with one of these TV streaming services: FuboTV ($64.99 USD/month), Hulu with Live TV ($64.99 USD/month), Sling TV ($35/month), or YouTube TV ($64.99/month). As you can see, Sling TV is the cheapest of these options and there’s currently a promotion in which you only pay $10 for the first month.

However, a cheaper way to watch American Crime Story season 3 is to wait an extra day. That’s because new episodes will be added to Hulu’s on-demand streaming service the day after their FX premiere. Plans cost $5.99/month (with ads) and $11.99/month (ad-free). All of the above options for watching FX are geo-blocked so you’ll need a VPN and US IP address to watch from abroad. NordVPN includes a 30-day money-back guarantee so you can try it risk-free.

Where else can I watch American Crime Story season 3 online?



The good news is that American Crime Story season 3 will also be coming to Australia! You’ll find it on Binge, a relatively new streaming service that launched in 2020, where it will premiere on Wednesday, September 8. Plans are priced at $10, $14, and $18 AUD per month depending on whether you want to watch in SD, HD, or Ultra HD (and whether you’d like to watch on multiple screens simultaneously). Due to geographic restrictions, you’ll need to connect to a VPN and get an Australian IP address to watch Binge online from anywhere.

While there’s no official premiere date for American Crime Story season 3 in the UK, seasons 1 and 2 both aired on BBC Two. In both cases, this was a few weeks after their initial US premiere. This means that you may soon be able to watch American Crime Story season 3 online via BBC iPlayer. Better still, BBC iPlayer content is free to watch (although you’ll need to sign up for an account to watch). Further, a UK TV license is required to use this platform, regardless of whether you’re watching live or on-demand. You’ll also need to use a VPN to get a UK IP address if you’re traveling abroad.
