Updates on Canadian availability of "American Horror Stories", "Anne Boleyn", and more.
Kevin Can F**k Himself – yes, that seems to be the official title, asterisks and all – is a comedy-drama series starring Annie Murphy, best known for her role as Alexis Rose on Schitt's Creek, as a wife on a show-within-the-show sitcom who tries to break free.
The series premiered in Canada on AMC on Sunday, June 20, 2021 with two back-to-back episodes starting at 9:00 p.m. EDT, with one new episode debuting in the same timeslot each Sunday thereafter until August 1. Within about 24 hours after airing, each episode should be available to access on demand through most providers, such as through Rogers on Demand / Anyplace TV. Unfortunately, AMC's website and apps do not currently support Canadian provider authentication.
The show premiered one week early – on Sunday, June 13 – on AMC+ (as in "AMC Plus"), the premium streaming service owned by AMC Networks, which is available over-the-top in America, and as an addon to the regular AMC channel on some U.S. cable providers.
However, AMC+ is not yet available in Canada, as can be verified on the service's Frequently Asked Questions page. This is likely due to the service having only recently launched, and programming rights for some of the other shows on the service – like BBC America and IFC programs – belonging to other broadcasters and streaming services in Canada.
So while many Canadians will not have to wait long to see Kevin Can F Himself, it will be restricted in Canada to those with a TV service that includes AMC, and they will be one week behind American AMC+ subscribers in being able to access episodes throughout at least the first season.
If you have comments about AMC's scheduling practices or the availability of AMC+, you can contact the network via the AMC support website.
