If you’ve been seeing ads for FX’s new show Chozen and still don’t have no idea what it is, at least you’ll be able to check it out a week early via the FXNow app on Xbox One. Though it seems there’s a caveat as you have to be a subscriber to AT&T U-Verse, Comcast, Cablevision, Suddenlink or WOW so all of you Verizon folk might be out of luck.
Chozen is an animated comedy about the title character, a gay white rapper fresh out of prison. Armed with a new message, Chozen is on a quest for redemption and to claim his rightful position as the world’s top rap artist. With a new world view shaped by his time in prison, Chozen’s music and lyrics take aim at the stereotypes of machismo and misogyny that are synonymous with rap music.

It will be interesting to see how TV ends up shaping up on the Xbox One as currently it seems to via a smattering of TV/Channel provider apps or through the system’s HDMI in port, both of which are a far cry from how well it was done on the Xbox 360 via the Windows Media Center application… Time will tell!
