Get ahead of the game

Although it will be launching at a different price, you can save some money if you decide to go ahead and sign up now or before launch. It's not much, but if you like to save every bit of cash, you can subscribe to the Criterion Channel for $10 per month or $90 per year. You can save a dollar a month or $10 per year, depending on what price you choose.

It's a small incentive to subscribe early, so immediately on April 8, you can start watching a mix of classic and contemporary movies, along with director spotlights, double features, shorts, and much more. If you have a hole in your life where FilmStruck used to be before it shut down, or just want to catch up on your Hollywood history, this is the service for you.

The cost at launch

Once the streaming service launches, the prices will be back up to $11 per month or $100 per year. Thankfully, it's not much of difference, but I would definitely invest in it as early as you can to save some coin.
