The hole left by the demise of FilmStruck is being quickly filled with word today that the proposed Criterion Channel streaming service and its accompanying app set to launch on April 8th.
The service will feature ‘new thematic programming every night of the week’ along with a ‘constantly refreshed selection of Hollywood, international, art-house, and independent movies’ along with regular access to Criterion’s existing library of films and special features.
There will also be a Sunday Spotlight with a new director, star, genre, or theme every week and new exclusive ‘programming’ such as the ‘Adventures In Moviegoing’ feature.
The channel costs $11 per month or $100 for a year, but Charter subscribers who sign up early get reduced pricing by around 10%.
