The Criterion Collection’s streaming service has a opening year: April 8.
The company had previously realized its library of classic art-house and international films accessible through streaming spouses — first Hulu, then FilmStruck. Nonetheless, FilmStruck shut down last-place drop, apparently a prey of its corporate parent WarnerMedia’s bigger streaming plans.
Criterion subsequently announced that it would both make its movies accessible through the yet-to-launch WarnerMedia service and launch a streaming service of its own, announced The Criterion Channel.
Today, Criterion heralded the channel’s launching year and started making signups from “charter” readers. In exchange for signing up early, you’ll get a rejected due fee of $9.99 per month or $89.99 yearly( compared to the regular premium of $10.99 per month or $99.99 annually ), and even before the launching, you’ll be able to watch films as part of the channel’s Movie of the Week series.
The Criterion Channel will be available in the United States and Canada, and should work on desktop, Apple TV, Amazon Fire, Roku, iOS and Android devices.
