Turner, Criterion Collection launch movie-streaming service

NEW YORK (AP) — Turner and the Criterion Collection are teaming up to launch a movie-streaming TV service to cater to art house aficionados.

The companies announced Tuesday that the new over-the-top streaming service, dubbed FilmStruck, will debut in the fall. It will make available art house, independent, foreign and cult films for a not-yet-announced monthly cost.

FilmStruck will be the new exclusive home to the Criterion Collection, which currently streams on Hulu Plus. Its library will also pull from other studios, such as the Janus Films library.

The service will be curated by programmers from Turner Classic Movies, the cable network.
