Streaming Service to Shut Down

Oct 26, 2018  •  Post A Comment

A streaming service that has been in business for two years will be shutting down next month. The AP reports that FilmStruck, which focuses on streaming classic movies, announced today on its website that its last day of service will be Nov. 29.

FilmStruck also noted that it is no longer accepting new subscribers.

“The joint venture between Criterion Collection and Turner Classic Movies offered a rotating selection of classic and hard-to-find arthouse film fare,” the AP notes. “The site, launched in November of 2016, provided a niche alternative to Hulu and Netflix, both of which have been criticized for lacking older films in their catalogues.”

“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” director Rian Johnson responded to the news by sending out a tweet saying: “FilmStruck was too good to last.”

The service was owned and operated by Turner, a subsidiary of AT&T’s WarnerMedia.
