    Yeah, I almost feel like I should note that I am not getting paid by them! I’m just pretty stoked about this one because I only heard about Filmstruck right as it was ending and people were saying how great it had been!Report

    I guess it’s better than just not having them available at all, but I’m not a fan of this new system where every content owner sets up its own exclusive streaming service. But I guess those who wanted a la carte cable should be happy.Report

      I think it works fairly well. We have the trifecta of Amazon, Hulu, and Netflix. Were it up to me, I would dump Netflix and just keep Amazon (free with prime so why not) and maybe Hulu, though I bet I could find everything I wanted on Prime. Then Add Criterion and I am gold for what I want to watch.Report

    It really helps that I have pretty specialized tastes. This and Shudder for horror covers about 95% of what I want to see.Report
