Turner is set to launch FilmStruck, a new OTT service.
The global media company aims to offer ‘an eclectic mix of contemporary and classic art house, indie foreign and cult films’.
Slated for a release in Q3, FilmStruck will also be the new exclusive streaming home for the Criterion Collection, which will include the Criterion Channel.
“At Turner, we are dedicated to engaging fans wherever they are, and we’re investing aggressively in content, new capabilities and new businesses to achieve that goal,” said John Martin, chairman and CEO of Turner.
“FilmStruck is a terrific example of our strategy to meet consumer demand for great content across all screens. It’s tailor-made for the diehard movie enthusiast who craves a deep, intimate experience with independent, foreign, and art house films.”
The library will feature films from indie studios including Janus Films, Flicker Alley, Icarus, Kino, Milestone and Zeitgeist, along with movies from Hollywood’s major movie studios including Warner Bros.
