The Criterion Collection Leaves Hulu on November 11
The Criterion Collection Leaves Hulu on November 11
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.”
