Turner Classic Movies and the Criterion Collection are two of my favourite things and today they released some exciting news. They are partnering to form an on-demand streaming service called FilmStruck!
Just imagine the catalogue of films that this will make available! Personally, I love to own DVDs and Blu-rays (physical media will never die!) but the cost of trying to own every film I love is prohibitive. This would also be a way to discover new favourites that I haven’t had a chance to see. The Turner catalogue alone is simply massive!
You can read the press release here. The official site is up with a nifty teaser trailer that makes my mouth water at http://filmstruck.com.
And now for the bad news… FilmStruck is only only going to be available to US customers. We here in Canada, though blissfully Trump-free, will be missing out on this amazing service. le sigh.
