There’s a new streaming service in town and it’s curated! Hoorah. But wait you say, aren’t all the streaming services curated. Well no, not like Filmstruck. The tagline is only great films leave you Filmstruck and at the launch party last Wednesday they explained why Filmstruck is going to be where it’s at.
Filmstruck is a joint venture between Warner Brothers Digital Networks, Turner International Digital ventures and in collaboration with Curzon independent cinema chain. It is available across all forms of devices and tablets thus to enable to the viewer to watch it anytime and anywhere.
What sets this streaming service apart is that it is curated so, gone are those days where you spend ages flicking aimlessness through the list of films. At Filmstruck, the list of films is much shorter and targeted. There are those that you’ve heard of like American Psycho, Magnolia and then others that might be new to you such as British cult classic – Archipelago.
At the press launch, it was clear that this is a different take on what feels like a saturated market, There are indie classics, British classic and given the partnership with Curzon there will be a decent selection of world cinema available something currently lacking on the other streaming services.
