TCM and Criterion Collection launch movie streaming service FilmStruck
Turner Classic Movies and the Criterion Collection are getting into the streaming game.
The two companies will partner on a new subscription streaming service called FilmStruck, which will allow subscribers access to “an eclectic mix of contemporary and classic arthouse, indie, foreign, and cult films.”
FilmStruck’s library will include hundreds of award-winning films and cult classics, including Seven Samurai, A Hard Day’s Night, Blood Simple, A Room With A View, Mad Max, My Life As A Dog, Breaker Morant, and The Player. It’ll also become the exclusive streaming site for the Criterion Collection, which was previously available on Hulu.
Pricing details have not been announced, but the service will be ad-free.
“FilmStruck is a terrific example of our strategy to meet consumer demand for great content across all screens,” Turner chairman and CEO John Martin said in a statement. “It’s tailor-made for the diehard movie enthusiasts who craves a deep, intimate experience with independent, foreign, and arthouse films. And it takes advantage of TCM’s powerful curation capabilities, as well as its proven track record in building a long-term relationship with passionate film fans.”
