After a couple of minor hiccups and delays, FilmStruck, the new streaming service from Turner Classic Movies and the Criterion Collection is live at FilmStruck.com. You can sign up for a free 14-day trial right now; after that it’ll cost you either $6.99 per month for the basic plan, $10.99 per month for the plan that includes Criterion Collection films, or $99 for a full year of both, which according to my incredible arithmetic skills, is about a $30 discount from the month-to-month pricing.

It’s that time of year again: Halloween month is the harbinger of the gift-giving season, retail stores throwing up the snowflake decorations before Thanksgiving is even a blip on our radars. But, for cinephiles, October is the month when Criterion announces their new releases for the following January, and next year’s slate, with three directors joining the collection for the first time, looks fantastic.

The good news is that the Criterion Collection is partnering with Turner Classic Movies to create a new, classic-movie-focused streaming service called FilmStruck. That launches on October 19 with hundreds of movies, new original content, tailored recommendations, and supplemental materials. The bad news is that means the Criterion is leaving Hulu, its streaming home for a number of years. Starting on November 11, FilmStruck becomes Criterion’s exclusive streaming home, and Hulu loses its Criterion site.

About six months after its initial announcement, FilmStruck, the new streaming service collaboration between Turner Classic Movies and the Criterion Collection, launches this month. Starting on October 19, you’ll be able to watch what the company calls “the largest streaming library of contemporary and classic arthouse, indie, foreign and cult films as well as extensive bonus content, filmmaker interviews and rare footage.” Later this year, FilmStruck will also become the exclusive streaming home for Criterion’s library, although you’ll need to pay extra for the so-called “Criterion Channel.”
