New of what was happening or not happening or kind of happening with FilmStruck has been all over the place. But now we have confirmation from Criterion themselves that a new channel for this content will be coming to us soon.
You can go sign up to be a charter member now.
From The Verge:
“The Criterion Channel will be picking up where the old service left off, programming director spotlights and actor retrospectives featuring major Hollywood and international classics and hard-to-find discoveries from around the world, complete with special features like commentaries, behind-the-scenes footage, and original documentaries,”
If we've learned one thing in all this it's that when Steven Spielberg gets behind a cause in this town, things happen very fast.
