Turner is launching “FilmStruck, a subscription service offering cult, foreign and independent films that appeal to movie aficionados,” reports the Los Angeles Times.

The L.A. Times story continues, “The service, which will be available starting this fall for a monthly fee to be determined, will be the exclusive streaming home for the Criterion Collection library, which includes such classic titles as ‘Seven Samurai,’ ‘A Hard Day’s Night,’ ‘A Room With a View,’ ‘My Life as a Dog,’ ‘Mad Max’ and ‘The Player.’

The story adds, “As Turner’s first over-the-top TV offering in the U.S., FilmStruck will go after a younger audience — one that has become accustomed to getting movies through streaming video services such as Netflix and Amazon.”
