Criterion Collection Leaving Hulu For Their Own Streaming Service

Fans of the classic Criterion collection of movies got some good news last week when it was announced that the Criterion Collection is partnering with Filmstruck, a Turner Classic Movies created classic movie focused streaming service.

The bad news though, is that this means Criterion films are leaving Hulu.

Starting on November 11, 2016, all Criterion movies will be exclusively streaming on Filmstruck and Hulu will drop its Criterion site.
Filmstruck’s site claims that the service provides “instant access to critically acclaimed films, hard-to-find gems and cult favorites from the world’s greatest independent film libraries.”

There are three FilmStruck subscription plans customers can choose from: the standard FilmStruck monthly subscription for just $6.99 a month, the FilmStruck plus Criterion Channel monthly subscription for just $10.99 a month or the FilmStruck plus Criterion Channel Annual Subscription for $99 a year.

Criterion films used to be a big draw for fans to Hulu, and one of the biggest advantages the site had over other streaming services. So if you’re a fan of classic films and you don’t want to add another service to what you pay each month, you’d better get streaming those movies now.
