Largest Streaming Library for Classic Arthouse Projects and Contemporary Film

Turner, international media company, recently announced a new subscription video-on-demand service set to launch with films by Turner Classic Movies & the Criterion Collection.

FilmStruck and Turner have noted the pricing for the service:

  • FilmStruck Subscription$6.99/month – offering hundreds of constantly refreshed, hard-to-find and critically acclaimed films, plus exclusive bonus content including hosted introductions, originally produced pieces, interviews and rare footage
  • FilmStruck + The Criterion Channel Subscription $10.99/month – offering everything in the FilmStruck subscription plus unlimited access to Criterion’s entire streaming library of films and special features, along with channel-exclusive original programming such as filmmaker profiles, master classes, and curated series by celebrated guests from the film world and beyond
  • Annual Subscription$99/year for FilmStruck + The Criterion Channel (a $30 annual savings)

“By combining the expertise at TCM and the Criterion Collection – two of the leading authorities in film preservation and history – we have created something really special that is a must-have for passionate film lovers.” – Jennifer Dorian, general manager of TCM and FilmStruck

“Turner smartly identified a strategic way to move into the direct-to-consumer business by creating an over-the-top offering that was additive to the TV landscape, with programming not readily available in the streaming marketplace and that was completely differentiated from what TCM already offers” said Coleman Breland, president of Turner Content Distribution and TCM.

Turner is making a strong move to provide customers with digital options, as well as their traditional broadcast form of television.

The company recently previewed the new service at a launch party in New York. Watch over a quick recap on Twitter. Also, browse over the Criterion Collection’s trailer for FilmStruck on YouTube below.
