FilmStruck, the new indie film subscription streaming service, that is a joint venture between Turner Classic Movies and the Criterion Collection, launched today with a new app for the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick. The service is “designed for film lovers by film lovers” and offers over 1,000 “acclaimed films, hard-to-find gems, and cult favorites.” In addition to films, the app provides bonus content like interviews, deleted scenes, documentaries, and audio commentaries.
You can browse the app freely, but to watch anything, you have to sign up and subscribe. There is no free content whatsoever, apart from the 14-day free trial. Plans start at $6.99 per month, which does not include the Criterion content. To have access to both FilmStuck and Criterion films, you’ll have to pay either $10.99 per month or $99 per year. The app is available on all Fire TV and Fire TV Stick models running Fire OS 5.
