The motive to demolish Filmstruck from the streaming services routes back to the deal between AT&T’s and Warners. The idea is to streamline the operations by cutting down niche-oriented business and for the Warner Media to make space in the mass market entertainment services.
The company offered a lists of 1800 contemporary and classical arthouse: indie. Foreign and cult films and Criterion collection. Along with this, Warner Archive service was shut down and migrated customers to Filmstruck.
The company provides its customer with the ability to get refunds for any months remaining in their subscription plan and states not to accept any future customer. All services including the FilmStruck Only Monthly package, the FilmStruck+Criterion Monthly package, the FilmStruck+Criterion Annual package, and the FilmStruck+Criterion Student package have been discontinued.
The company business will cease its US and international operation on November 29,2018, and signups have been stopped recently. According to Turner and WB Digital Networks, they plan to take key learnings from FilmStruck to help shape the future business decisions in direct to consumer space and redirect the investment back to pace.
Titles shown on FilmStruck had included “Casablanca,” “Rebel Without a Cause,” “Singin’ in the Rain,” “Citizen Kane,” “The Music Man,” “Bringing Up Baby,” “The Thin Man” and “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” from Warner Bros. Other tracks that were available on FilmStruck previously had included “Babette’s Feast,” “Blow Out,” “Boyhood,” “Breaker Morant,” “Chicago,” “A Hard Day’s Night,” “My Life as a Dog,” “Our Song,” etc.
The decision from the company seems final to shut down and November 29,2018, be the last day for their service. All business partners look to something great to compensate their loss from shutting down of Filmstruck.
