Turner’s FilmStruck Movie-Subscription Service Now on Apple TV; Roku, Chromecast Promised in 2017

FilmStruck, Turner’s subscription movie service for film fans, is now available on fourth-generation Apple TV set-tops.

FilmStruck, which launched Nov. 1 after a two-week delay, offers hundreds of current and classic arthouse, indie, foreign and cult films and is the exclusive streaming home to the Criterion Collection. Apple TV joins the service’s lineup of other devices, including Amazon Fire TV and iOS and Android devices, and it’s also available on the web.

Turner says it plans to add FilmStruck access for Roku devices and Google Chromecast in early 2017, followed by Sony’s PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Xbox One later in the year.

The service, managed by Turner Classic Movies (TCM), is available only in the U.S. initially. Pricing starts at $6.99 per month without the Criterion Channel, and $10.99 monthly with the Criterion Channel. Turner also is offering an annual subscription of $99 per year for FilmStruck including the Criterion Channel.

FilmStruck is Turner’s first domestic direct-to-consumer offering. Execs at the Time Warner-owned cable programmer have said they’ll use the launch to understand the SVOD market, with an eye toward developing more such services.

The rotating selection of titles on FilmStruck include the Beatles’ “A Hard Day’s Night,” “Babette’s Feast,” “Blood Simple,” “Blow-Up,” the original “Mad Max,” “Metropolis,” “Moulin Rouge,” “My Life as a Dog,” “Paths of Glory,” “The Player,” “A Room with a View,” “Seven Samurai,” “The Seventh Seal,” “The Unbearable Lightness of Being,” “Stardust Memories,” “The Trip to Bountiful,” “The Umbrellas of Cherbourg.”

FilmStruck’s movies come from indie studios including Janus Films, Flicker Alley, Icarus Films, Kino, Milestone, Zeitgeist, Film Movement, Global Lens, First Run Features, Oscilloscope Laboratories and Shout Factory, along with major studios including Warner Bros. and MGM.
