AT&T-owned WarnerMedia announced today that they are shutting down FilmStruck, their streaming service focused on arthouse, indie, and foreign films.
They were most well known for being the exclusive home of The Criterion Collection.
The service launched November 2016 and was managed by Turner Classic Movies. FilmStruck was available for $6.99 without The Criterion Collection or $10.99 with it.
It’s been a rough few weeks for WarnerMedia’s niche streaming sites. The company shutdown their DramaFever (Korean Dramas) and Super Deluxe (Digital Shows) earlier this month.
The restructuring is in response to rising content costs and consolidating content for their upcoming Netflix competitor.
We regret to inform you that FilmStruck will be shutting down. Our last day of service will be November 29, 2018, and we are currently no longer enrolling new subscribers.
All current FilmStruck subscribers will receive an email with details about your account and the refund process as applicable. Please see the options below for more information or email the customer service team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
