That didn’t take long.
Now that AT&T owns WarnerMedia, formerly Time Warner, they have to get busy shutting down things people like.
FilmStruck, a popular and smart streaming service, is first to go. This was a service that provided curated, unusual films, and programming for sophisticated film fans. But you know, there’s no place for that now, not when you could be watching a comic book movie.
The folks in charge say: “We’re incredibly proud of the creativity and innovations produced by the talented and dedicated teams who worked on FilmStruck over the past two years. While FilmStruck has a very loyal fanbase, it remains largely a niche service. We plan to take key learnings from FilmStruck to help shape future business decisions in the direct-to-consumer space and redirect this investment back into our collective portfolios.”
The service ends November 29th.
