Turner expands FilmStruck internationally

Turner International’s Digital Ventures & Innovation (DV&I) Group and Warner Bros. Digital Networks (WBDN) announced a joint venture to launch movie SVOD service FilmStruck internationally.
The service will include the extensive Warner Bros. library and the Criterion Collection library, as well as other global and local content partners, the company said in a press release. The catalogue will offer high-quality and critically-acclaimed movies across many categories – mainstream, cult, independent, classics, art house, foreign and documentary film.
The service will first launch in the UK. The company said that FilmStruck will launch across multiple markets over the next two years. Turner did not disclose the countries it will be available. The OTT was created in the United States in October 2016 and is its first SVOD service in the general entertainment space.
This way, Turner increases its presence in the SVOD space outside of the US. The media group now offers three international SVOD brands, with EI Plus in Brazil and the recently launched Nordics brand Toonix.
