FilmStruck, a Time Warner-owned steaming service, is adding a slew of films from Warner Bros. massive library of classic content. The two companies reached a deal to stock FilmStruck with more than 600 classic Hollywood films each month from the Warner Bros library.
The move comes shortly after a decision from Time Warner to shutdown WB’s Archive SVOD service, which, after launching in 2013, failed to gain much momentum. All current customers will be moved over to FilmStruck in the coming weeks.
Time Warner declined to provide subscriber numbers for FilmStruck or Warner Archive.
Titles coming to FilmStruck include “Casablanca,” “Rebel Without a Cause,” “Singin’ In the Rain,” “Citizen Kane,” “The Music Man,” “Bringing Up Baby,” “The Thin Man,” “Cat People,” “A Night At The Opera,” “An American In Paris” and “Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?”
The move marks the first time that consumers have access to dozens of Warner Bros. classics as part of a subscription streaming service. The addition of the new the titles is expected to increase the attractiveness of the $6.99-a-month FilmStruck service, which launched in November 2016.
