FilmStruck cancelled; Barry Jenkins and others react

  • FilmStruck is a streaming service that affordably provided old, rare, arthouse, independent and classic movies and documentaries. Earlier today, Turner and Warner Bros. Digital Network announced that it will be shutting down the service.

  • The Criterion Channel, which was on FilmStruck, will obviously be affected and now has to find a new home.

  • In a joint statement, Turner and Warner stated, “While FilmStruck has a very loyal fanbase, it remains largely a niche service."

  • Honestly, just blame AT&T.

  • FilmStruck will be gone as of November 29.

  • People on Twitter reacted quite strongly today:

(Co-screenwriter, Mandy)



(Director, Hereditary)



(Author, FilmStruck host)

Will the end of FilmStruck affect you? What streaming services other than Prime or Netflix do you like? Do you still buy physical media?
