Time Warner's Turner Appeals to Film Nerds With Web-Only Service

  • Ad-free FilmStruck will be managed by Turner Classic Movies
  • Streaming channel marks latest Time Warner Web-only product

Time Warner Inc.’s Turner division will introduce its first online-only channel, allowing film buffs to watch classic movies without a traditional TV subscription.

The service, called FilmStruck, will be developed and managed by Turner Classic Movies and the Criterion Collection, which owns more than 1,000 arthouse films, according to a company statement Tuesday. Criterion’s movies, available now on Hulu Plus, will be exclusive to FilmStruck when Turner’s streaming service begins this fall.
