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 (two 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 (two years ago) link

But I'll sign up, at least for a few months.

aaaaaaaauuuuuuuuu (melting robot) (WilliamC), Thursday, 6 October 2016 13:37 (two years ago) link

I'll wait to start until Criterion joins up in November. I'll drop the $99 for their catalog alone.

EZ Snappin, Thursday, 6 October 2016 14:44 (two years ago) link

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

aaaaaaaauuuuuuuuu (melting robot) (WilliamC), Thursday, 6 October 2016 14:49 (two years ago) link

Yet no one posts on my Fandor thread

Whiney G. Weingarten, Thursday, 6 October 2016 15:13 (two years ago) link

November 11th for Criterion. They have to wait for the Hulu deal to expire.

EZ Snappin, Thursday, 6 October 2016 15:15 (two 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 (two 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 (two years ago) link

I went by this press release that says the 1th of November.

EZ Snappin, Thursday, 6 October 2016 18:13 (two 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 (two 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.

Kiarostami bag (milo z), Thursday, 6 October 2016 18:45 (two years ago) link

TCM-esque

Kiarostami bag (milo z), Thursday, 6 October 2016 18:46 (two years ago) link

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 (two 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

intheblanks, Friday, 7 October 2016 04:46 (two years ago) link

I have a Hulu subscription and honestly never watched a single Criterion title. The ones I want, I just buy.

Don Van Gorp, midwest regional VP, marketing (誤訳侮辱), Friday, 7 October 2016 11:00 (two years ago) link

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 (two 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 (two 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

look at the morning people (Jon not Jon), Friday, 7 October 2016 13:55 (two years ago) link

aw man. I too was pretty stoked for the TCM+Criterion version of this.

DOCTOR CAISNO, BYCREATIVELABBUS (Doctor Casino), Friday, 7 October 2016 13:59 (two 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 (two 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 (two 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 (two 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 (two 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 (two 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.

Nhex, Friday, 7 October 2016 17:17 (two years ago) link

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.

aaaaaaaauuuuuuuuu (melting robot) (WilliamC), Friday, 7 October 2016 20:25 (two years ago) link

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

Nhex, Friday, 7 October 2016 20:34 (two years ago) link

(I think my Apple TV is second generation...)

Nhex, Friday, 7 October 2016 20:34 (two years ago) link

I honestly don't know. That time David Lynch cussed traumatized me so bad I've never tried watching film or video on my phone.

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

EZ Snappin, Tuesday, 18 October 2016 18:51 (two years ago) link

Yep. I wasn't planning on starting any free trial until everything was available.

aaaaaaaauuuuuuuuu (melting robot) (WilliamC), Tuesday, 18 October 2016 18:58 (two years ago) link

Launched.
Looks like the Criterions are up with an 11-day overlap with Hulu. Seeing a lot of fussing on the Facebook page about errors while setting up payment.

aaaaaaaauuuuuuuuu (melting robot) (WilliamC), Tuesday, 1 November 2016 16:34 (two years ago) link

Anyone start using this yet? Any thoughts (apart from the still unavailable (?) Criterions?

Federico Boswarlos, Wednesday, 2 November 2016 00:29 (two years ago) link

I'm in, just getting the apps installed now. I need a tivo app! Apple and Amazon will do for now.

the notes the loon doesn't play (ulysses), Wednesday, 2 November 2016 01:21 (two years ago) link

Sound like it's worth waiting a few weeks for them to get all the bugs worked out

Whiney G. Weingarten, Wednesday, 2 November 2016 01:24 (two years ago) link

Not available on Roku til Jan so nope for a while. Also copy on their site suggested that virtually all Criterions wd be available but several that I've searched for are not (incl All That Jazz, ugh)

Fluffy Saint-Bernard (Stevie D(eux)), Wednesday, 2 November 2016 01:27 (two 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 trailer
Ozu on Filmstruck: looks like 18 features

Filmstruck: (crickets)

aaaaaaaauuuuuuuuu (melting robot) (WilliamC), Wednesday, 2 November 2016 01:41 (two 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 (two years ago) link

It doesn't have all the Oshima titles that are currently on Hulu either

intheblanks, Wednesday, 2 November 2016 02:15 (two 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 (two years ago) link

I'm hopeful too, though the way filmstruck has been marketed and rolled out has dampened my expectations all around

intheblanks, Wednesday, 2 November 2016 02:22 (two years ago) link

Even Criterion doesn't have the rights to all the Criterions anymore

Whiney G. Weingarten, Wednesday, 2 November 2016 03:05 (two years ago) link

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.

intheblanks, Wednesday, 2 November 2016 03:10 (two years ago) link

They managed to go with all the devices that I don't own. Not sure it's worth picking up a new AppleTV just for this.

Kiarostami bag (milo z), Wednesday, 2 November 2016 17:41 (two years ago) link

seems lame that it's not on xbone/ps4; that's what a very significant chunk of the population use to stream stuff, no?

Oh wait, I do have an Amazon Fire TV in my office, guess I can watch Kurosawa while filling out payroll forms and stuff.

Kiarostami bag (milo z), Wednesday, 2 November 2016 17:43 (two years ago) link

Roku runs Android right? Really looking forward to having some flexibility with apps; my tivo is locked into Plex/YouTube/Hulu/HBO/Netflix/Amazon and that's about it.

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Thursday, 11 April 2019 20:16 (three months ago) link

Tried one of the HDMI splitters for removing HDCP and no dice. Might could be I got the "wrong" one since I guess different ones work with different setups? But not interested in pursuing it further, just gonna pull the plug on this. Can't believe it can be so complicated to watch movies on TV in 2019.

After Filmstruck died I rebooted the DVD-thru-mail element of my Netflix subscription and honestly cant believe I ever stopped, they have like 98% of what was in my old queue, still lots of OOP Criterion stuff floating around in the system, think I'm just gonna keep riding that horse till they decide to put it down for good.

One Eye Open, Thursday, 11 April 2019 21:56 (three months ago) link

xpost I don't think Roku is Android, I think it's its own thing? I only use it for Netflix/Amazon/Plex/Hulu and now Criterion, but they all seem to work.

Josh in Chicago, Thursday, 11 April 2019 22:03 (three months ago) link

Honestly I fully don’t get the appeal of smart TVs when you can get a Roku for like $50 that will be way speedier, more stable, have way more channels, etc

vision joanna newsom (Stevie D(eux)), Friday, 12 April 2019 00:43 (three months ago) link

My smart tv is a top of the line Vizio from 2017 and it CRASHES!! Like it will freeze and I have to turn it off and back on and it takes like 30-60 sec!

vision joanna newsom (Stevie D(eux)), Friday, 12 April 2019 00:44 (three months ago) link

30-60 sec!

Sacre bleu!

Like my dedicated Roku was ever particularly reliable.

I didn't get a smart TV because it was a smart TV, I got a new TV that happened to be a smart TV (see also: 4K, HDR, etc, features that will have next to no bearing on what and how I watch but which are pretty much the default as of late). We'll see how it goes with crashes and stuff, but so far Plex at the least seems to work faster than it did via dedicated Roku.

American TV shows are 19 minutes long: if your TV just decides to turn itself off and takes 60 seconds to turn back on, you've missed over 5% of the programme.

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Friday, 12 April 2019 22:07 (three months ago) link

Nope. And in the filter function, they created a button for the 1900s (0 results) but forgot the button for the 1910s. You can do that manually in the URL and get yr 13 results.

The Carjackers Quickly Dumped ILX Once They Saw What Was Inside (WmC), Friday, 12 April 2019 22:14 (three months ago) link

Looks like the full film list won't come to the app or iOS. From the email they sent out this afternoon --

The number one request was for an “all films” list, and just in time for your viewing pleasure here it is! This desktop-only feature will allow you to see all the films on the Criterion Channel and organize them by title, director, year, and country. We hope this helps you navigate the more than 1,500 titles available now on the service!

The Carjackers Quickly Dumped ILX Once They Saw What Was Inside (WmC), Saturday, 13 April 2019 03:25 (three months ago) link

i imagine the app will improve over the upcoming month. Even so, they've rolled out kinda haphazardly tbh.

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Saturday, 13 April 2019 14:47 (three months ago) link

I mean, this is a boutique proposition, and for clearing the rights on this library alone, it’s cool. I was able to send off my Friday with Querelle and I was very happy.

Is there a reason why some Criterion titles are apparently not available to stream? I subscribed to Filmstruck from the start and never saw The Harder They Come pop up, and it's not listed on the new channel, either.

Same reason Netflix or Prime don't have things, they don't own the streaming rights.

Greta Van Show Feets BB (milo z), Saturday, 13 April 2019 18:38 (three months ago) link

The All Films list is nice, but its usefulness is limited in that there is no way to use it to add films to one's own list, even by clicking through to the film.

"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.
