Turner subscription video on-demand (SVOD) service FilmStruck is partnering with Warner Bros Digital Networks (WBDN) to expand its slate of art house, indie, foreign and cult films with classic movies from the Golden Age of Hollywood.

Beginning immediately, FilmStruck subscribers in the US will now get hundreds of new films as well as exclusive streaming access to films from the Warner Bros classic film library at no additional cost, including iconic films such as Casablanca, Rebel Without a Cause, Singin’ In the Rain, Citizen Kane, The Music Man, Bringing Up Baby, The Thin Man, Cat People, A Night At The Opera, An American In Paris, and Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf.

The new deal will also give users access to TCM Select, a new featured collection offering the most iconic films from the Golden Age of Hollywood, supplemented with introductions from TCM host Ben Mankiewicz created exclusively for FilmStruck, rare archival content and bonus materials. It will also include new curated themes around classic Hollywood such as Rogers & Astaire: The Complete Collection, Neo-Noir, and a Star of the Week theme featuring Bette Davis, Hepburn & Tracy and Ava Gardner, among others.

“At Turner, we’re dedicated to bringing fans optimal viewing experiences at every touch point, and we’re very proud of the premium movie service we’ve built as an additive entertainment option among our portfolio of popular TV networks,” said Coleman Breland, president of Turner Classic Movies, FilmStruck and Turner Content Experiences. “There is tremendous value in partnering with Warner Bros., who owns the most iconic classic film library in the world, as the next natural step in FilmStruck’s evolution as we continue to build momentum in the streaming marketplace.”

Added Craig Hunegs, president, Warner Bros Digital Networks and president, business and strategy, Warner Bros Television Group: “We are very excited to partner with FilmStruck and bring Warner Bros' classic movie library to the world’s premiere film service.”
