i wonder why the TCM lot and the Criterion gang decided to get into bed together. i mean Criterion doesn't seem like an obvious match for Ted 'Colourization' Turner.
― piscesx, Thursday, 6 October 2016 13:30 (three years ago) link
Turner hasn't been involved in years...? TCM is a pretty good channel. Have they ever shown a colorized film?
Cons: US only, no Roku support at launch, extreme vagueness (how many films? "HUNDREDS of films!")
― aaaaaaaauuuuuuuuu (melting robot) (WilliamC), Thursday, 6 October 2016 13:37 (three years ago) link
But I'll sign up, at least for a few months.
I'll wait to start until Criterion joins up in November. I'll drop the $99 for their catalog alone.

Criterion won't be available from day 1? I hadn't heard that part.

November 11th for Criterion. They have to wait for the Hulu deal to expire.
― EZ Snappin, Thursday, 6 October 2016 15:15 (three years ago) link
Not bad, if you do the $99 once-a-year payment, it's about $20 cheaper than a year of Netflix. Is there any way to browse the TCM catalog at the moment?
― erry red flag (f. hazel), Thursday, 6 October 2016 15:25 (three years ago) link
On their FB page they said Criterion will be available at launch.
I want to sign up but my two devices (Nvidia Shield TV and XB1) aren't supported.
― Kiarostami bag (milo z), Thursday, 6 October 2016 16:35 (three years ago) link
I went by this press release that says the 1th of November.
― EZ Snappin, Thursday, 6 October 2016 18:13 (three years ago) link
Been reading a lot of information on the website and elsewhere, but haven't seen anything that says the TCM movies will also be part of the package. I have a nagging feeling that they're not. Also wonder if the Criterion movies will be available in 1080, instead of the 720 now on Hulu.
― Jazzbo, Thursday, 6 October 2016 18:17 (three years ago) link
I don't think everything on nightly at TCM will be on there but a selection of TCM-sequel films.
I'm going to guess it will be like Mubi with a larger rotating library plus Criterion.

yeah, TCM's tweet that filmstruck "will focus on indie, foreign & cult titles, not Old Hollywood. Some limited titles, not many" considerably dampened my enthusiasm.
― intheblanks, Friday, 7 October 2016 04:41 (three years ago) link
my guess is milo z otm re: criterion plus larger mubi. Which is cool, but not the turner library plus janus library nearly nonstop excellence that i had prematurely imagined

I was excited when I thought this was gonna be criterion + old Hollywood tcm stuff. The latter element was critical for me. If it's criterion + buffet of other stuff then no.
― look at the morning people (Jon not Jon), Friday, 7 October 2016 11:18 (three years ago) link
Yeah, that's a bummer. I figured $99 was a no brainer but if it's Criterion plus some random rotating films I don't know.
― EZ Snappin, Friday, 7 October 2016 13:53 (three years ago) link
basically i would pay... let's see... $15 a month for some reasonable fascimile of access to TCM's programming without having to have fucking cable tv

― DOCTOR CAISNO, BYCREATIVELABBUS (Doctor Casino), Friday, 7 October 2016 13:59 (three years ago) link
This weird in-between time where the biggest events still happen on old-fashioned cable TV, the "prestige" TEH DISCOURSE TV shows are on Netflix, film is either exploded across multiple competing streaming services or iTunes rental downloads that disappear after 24 hours or totally unavailable, video stores are rare — is totally excruciating.
― Whiney G. Weingarten, Friday, 7 October 2016 14:04 (three years ago) link
whiney otm, i feel a deep nostalgia for, like, 2008-2010, when a full decade of DVD production had led to lot of foreign/classic/arthouse stuff to be available, and Netflix was still in the business of providing just about any DVD that got produced.
― intheblanks, Friday, 7 October 2016 16:00 (three years ago) link
Like, the fact that we let this happen is ridiculous: http://ww2.kqed.org/arts/2014/09/12/netflix_streaming_dvds/
― Whiney G. Weingarten, Friday, 7 October 2016 16:04 (three years ago) link
maybe i just wasn't reading the early filmstruck announcements carefully, but it seems like everyone i know was expecting it to have a major focus on classic hollywood, given tcm's involvement. My guess is that getting streaming rights to that old hollywood stuff is probably just insanely complicated and, from a business perspective, not worth the investment of time and resources. Still disappointing though.
― intheblanks, Friday, 7 October 2016 16:06 (three years ago) link
I've never watched any Criterions on Hulu but that's because their interface is such a disaster - you don't know what's streaming in HD, there's no easy way to sort the entire Criterion list, etc. Higher hopes for this, though I'm a lot less inclined toward a burning need to watch Truffaut than when I was 23.
― Kiarostami bag (milo z), Friday, 7 October 2016 16:30 (three years ago) link
Their interface/searching/tagging/credits is all pretty awful in comparison to Netflix and even Amazon Prime. That said, damn I'm gonna have to rush out some screenings before they leave. Better get Lady Snowblood queued up.

The FAQ has changed to specify that only 4th-gen Apple TV will support this, so me and my 3rd-gen box are out of luck. I'll have to load a film on my iMac and push it to the tv with Airplay.

With airplay/casting, does it make a difference if you're casting from a phone vs. a computer?

At this point they should wait until the Hulu contract for the Criterions expires.

Yep. I wasn't planning on starting any free trial until everything was available.
― aaaaaaaauuuuuuuuu (melting robot) (WilliamC), Tuesday, 18 October 2016 18:58 (three years ago) link

They have someone responding to comments on Facebook, putting on the shiny happy face but being really vague with specific questions.
Some Guy Named Dave: Your Criterion selection seems to be quite limited. Are you ever going to offer the same number of Criterion titles as Hulu - over 900?
FilmStruck: Hi Dave, on the #CriterionChannel side you will find the largest selection of Criterion releases available to stream
Me: That doesn't really answer the question that was asked...
FilmStruck: #CriterionChannel has the largest Criterion selection available streaming, more than was ever available elsewhere.
Me: Ozu on Hulu: 30 features, 2 shorts and a trailerOzu on Filmstruck: looks like 18 features
― aaaaaaaauuuuuuuuu (melting robot) (WilliamC), Wednesday, 2 November 2016 01:41 (three years ago) link
Huh, why would it have less than Hulu does? That doesn't make any sense to me. I did notice through a cursory search that they had at least two titles not on Hulu (Godard's Every Man for Himself and Yang's A Brighter Summer Day), so I was hopeful that maybe it had more than Hulu.
― intheblanks, Wednesday, 2 November 2016 02:14 (three years ago) link
It doesn't have all the Oshima titles that are currently on Hulu either
― intheblanks, Wednesday, 2 November 2016 02:15 (three years ago) link
I'm hoping they're still loading up the buffet table. They have quite a few things that aren't on Hulu -- Blood Simple, that JFK documentary stuff. They got The Killing of a Chinese Bookie back, which disappeared from Hulu a year or more ago.
― aaaaaaaauuuuuuuuu (melting robot) (WilliamC), Wednesday, 2 November 2016 02:19 (three years ago) link
I'm hopeful too, though the way filmstruck has been marketed and rolled out has dampened my expectations all around

yeah, otm, and i'm sure there are a number of criterions that got dvd release, but where they never had streaming rights. the more i search around on filmstruck the more i think that WilliamC is probably right that they're still adding movies to the service.

"Our Betters" was pretty delightful--thanks for repping it Stevie. It's basically a filmed play but Constance Bennett and, especially, Violet Kemble-Cooper are such fun. And I don't know what to say about the last five minutes.
Also, I'm not one to swoon over women's fashion, but Bennett looks phenomenal in every scene:
I have to say, having spent the last five years in Canada at a loss for how to see classic/arty/etc cinema, this service has been a godsend. If only they'd put a My List link in the top nav.
