Movie lovers now have a new way to take in the Criterion Collection from their TVs, laptops or tablets.
Today’s news means Fandor users can watch titles like Zoltán Korda’s “Sanders of the River” (1935), Charlie Chaplin’s “The Gold Rush” (1925) and Hiroshi Teshigahara classic “Woman in the Dunes” (1964) and many more in the weeks to come.
The deal lets Hulu’s Criterion Collection be shared with Fandor, a site with a starting monthly price of $7.50, for a limited time. Each week, new Criterion titles will be added to Fandor’s streaming lineup, with an average of 30 movies per month. The titles will be available on Fandor commercial free for their first 12 days, and then they revert back to Hulu.com. Some titles will be shown on Fandor with extra content like director commentaries.
Hulu and its premium service, Hulu Plus, previously held exclusive rights to Criterion Collection titles.
