Turner’s streaming service FilmStruck is set to partner with Warner Bros. Digital Networks for a deal giving them exclusive streaming access to films from the Warner Bros. classic film library.
At no additional cost and starting from today, FilmStruck subscribers in the U.S. will now get hundreds of new movies per month from the Warner Film Archive which includes critically-acclaimed Hollywood classics such as “Casablanca,” “Rebel Without a Cause,” “Singin’ In the Rain,” “Citizen Kane,” “The Music Man,” “Bringing Up Baby,” “An American In Paris” and “Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?”
Under the banner ‘TCM Select,’ this featured collection will offer the most iconic films from the Golden Age of Hollywood along with introductions from TCM host Ben Mankiewicz created exclusively for FilmStruck, rare archival content and bonus materials.
There will also be new curated themes added to existing ones and based around classic Hollywood such as Rogers & Astaire: The Complete Collection, Neo-Noir, and a Star of the Week theme featuring Bette Davis, Hepburn & Tracy and Ava Gardner among others.
Effective immediately, Warner Archive will dismantle its digital streaming service with current subscribers being transitioned to a FilmStruck subscription.
The Warner Archive titles joins FilmStruck’s other libraries including many titles from the Criterion Collection along with features from the likes of Janus Films, Flicker Alley, Icarus Films, Kino, Milestone, Zeitgeist, Film Movement, Global Lens, First Run Features, Oscilloscope Laboratories and Shout Factory and all the major studios.
