FilmStruck, The Criterion Collection & Turner Classic Movies’ Streaming Service,
How many weekend have you spent browsing through Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and the plethora of other streaming movie services, only to feel like there’s nothing to watch?
|Sorry not sorry, Netlix.|
In just a few days, it looks like we might be finally get a collection worth paying for!
Turner Classic Movies & The Criterion Collection are collaborating to create FilmStruck, a new streaming service with titles we actually want to watch.
From the press release:
|Cue all the film nerd screaming in 3... 2... 1...|
Additionally, beginning on November 11, FilmStruck will become the exclusive streaming home to The Criterion Channel, offering the largest streaming collection of Criterion films available, including classic and contemporary films from around the world, interviews and conversations with filmmakers and never-before-seen programming. The channel's weekly calendar will feature complete Criterion editions, thematic retrospectives, live events, short films, and select contemporary features, along with exclusive original programming that aims to enhance the Criterion experience for the brand's dedicated fans as well as expanding its reach to new audiences.
Given that there are a good portion of Criterion films on Hulu Plus, one has to wonder if they will be removed in order to provide exclusive access to FilmStruck. Having access to The Criterion Collection alone is worth signing up! I’m crossing my fingers that 8½ and Carnival of Souls are part of that library.
