Frequently Asked Questions

1. Why am I am being asked to authenticate with my cable provider to access full episodes on the IFC app?

Full episodes are offered as a benefit to cable subscribers whose provider offers the full episode service and whose package includes the IFC channel. We require a cable login to confirm your access.

Please note: The IFC app does occasionally make select full episodes available without requiring login.
