We compared Netflix to FilmStruck, the streaming site for movie buffs - and there's a clear winner
Netflix may be among the most popular of streaming service sites, ranked high with others like Hulu and Amazon Prime Video, but there's one audience these sites haven't heavily catered to: classic film enthusiasts.
It's a void that FilmStruck caught onto when it began offering movie streamers a repertoire of rare, classic, foreign, and independent movies in 2016. The streaming site is owned by Time Warner's Turner Classic Movies and boasts hundreds of films dating back to 1917, including 600 newly-obtained films from Warner Bros.In short, it's a movie buff's dream come true.
As someone with a limited knowledge of classic Hollywood films, I cancelled my $7.99 monthly Netflix subscription and replaced it with a $10.99 FilmStruck plan as an educational experiment.
