- Exclusive streaming access to critically-acclaimed Hollywood classics 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?

“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.”
“We are very excited to partner with FilmStruck and bring Warner Bros.’ classic movie library to the world’s premiere film service,” said Craig Hunegs, President, Warner Bros.
