Westerns on Fox Movie Channel:
Schedule for February 2011

The following is a listing of westerns being shown on Fox Movie Channel during the months listed below. FMC shows movies uncut and without commercial interruption, but sometimes they show pan-and-scan/full screen versions of films as well as widescreen (check FMC's specific web listings for which version they are airing if you want to make sure it is widescreen).

I offer this schedule for the convenience of the reader, so you don't have to sort through the entire FMC schedule searching out the westerns. Keep in mind that the times listed are for Central Standard Time, and that all schedules are subject to change. FMC sometimes changes its programming schedule, so please don't blame me if that happens to be the case!
