The Criterion Channel to Launch April 8th
Film fans and movie lovers, rejoice!
The inimitable Criterion Collection, which focuses on licensing "important classic and contemporary films," is launching their own streaming channel on April 8th for $9.99 per month.
Criterion has been a champion for film and cinema since its founding in 1984. The organization has since helped to standardize a number of innovative ideas, including the letterbox format for widescreen films, bonus features, commentary tracks, and film restoration.
Many of the Collections’ 1300 films are considered to be the most impressive and important in the history of cinema, including ‘8 1/2,’ ‘12 Angry Men,’ and ‘The 39 Steps’—must see films for any cinephile.
