Warner Bros. Transitioning Customers to FilmStruck
Warner Bros. recently forged a deal with Turner Networks and merged its SVOD service with FilmStruck. Warner Archive streaming service will be shutting down, and no new accounts will be created. Existing subscribers will move over to the FilmStruck platform soon. Warner Bros. warned users that some apps and services might temporarily be unavailable during the transition.
Why the Deal?
This acquisition may be good news for Archive customers. The deal was put in place to expand the content offered to include indie films, art house, cult classics and Hollywood pictures. Some of the new additions on deck will be “The Music Man,” “Citizen Kane,” “Casablanca,” “Rebel Without a Cause,” and “An American in Paris,” among others.
Coleman Breland, President of Turner Classic Movies and FilmStruck said: “there is tremendous value in partnering with Warner Bros., who owns the most iconic classic film library in the world.”
The bottom line is that Turner wanted to offer more premium movie content to their streaming service and provide an unmatched viewing experience for their customers.
