TCM Film Fest   On the heels of this week’s TCM Film Festival, film buffs will soon have a new viewing option for contemporary and classic movies with the start of a streaming service called FilmStruck. Developed by Turner Classic Movies in partnership with Criterion Collection, the subscription-based service will feature thousands of films from independent and major Hollywood studios. They include Seven Samurai, A Hard Day’s Night, A Room With A View, Breaker Morant, and Mad Max.

   FilmStruck also will be the exclusive streaming destination for Criterion Collection, which specializes in licensing classic and contemporary films. Criterion will operate a channel on the service to spotlight more than 1,000 films, and provide other content such as commentary on films and filmmakers. The service will be advertising free. Specific pricing details are still being determined. Since 1984, the Criterion Collection, a continuing series of important classic and contemporary films, has been dedicated to gathering the greatest films from around the world and publishing them in editions that offer the highest technical quality and award-winning, original supplements.


   FilmStruck is a terrific example of the strategy to meet consumer demand for great content across all screens, according to a Turner press release. It’s tailor-made for the die-hard movie enthusiast that crave a deep, intimate experience with independent, foreign, and art house films. And it takes advantage of TCM’s powerful curation capabilities, as well as its proven track record of building a long-term relationship with passionate film fans. FilmStruck is the latest endeavor in Turner’s overall strategy to innovate beyond the traditional television ecosystem by providing rich viewing experiences that drive engagement across all platforms.
