FilmStruck Streaming Service Rolls Out in France, Spain


The premium movie streaming platform FilmStruck is expanding its footprint with bespoke services for France and Spain.

The SVOD service is a joint venture from Turner International’s Digital Ventures & Innovation (DV&I) Group and Warner Bros. Digital Networks (WBDN). Following its U.S. debut, FilmStruck made its arrival in the international market with a U.K. launch in February. The service offers a diverse movie catalog drawing on the Warner Bros. library and the Criterion Collection library, as well as other global and local content partners. The FilmStruck service for France will draw on local content partners Carlotta Films, MK2, RKO and STUDIOCANAL, while the service for Spain will team with local content providers Wanda, Caramel and A Contracorriente Films.

“Rolling FilmStruck out to these additional markets is a significant next step for us,” said Aksel van der Wal, executive VP of DV&I at Turner International. “France and Spain both have a rich heritage in and love for movies, as well as being rapidly developing SVOD markets, which makes them both exciting markets to tap into with what we believe is a fresh and differentiated offering working with fantastic content partners.”
