article imageWarner Archive Instant launched, offers hard to find WB classics Special

By Matthew Hendricks     Jul 22, 2013 in Entertainment
Warner Archive Instant is a new specialized video streaming service targeted to film and TV enthusiasts, focusing on unique content that is difficult to find elsewhere.
With a monthly subscription fee that is $2 more than that of Netflix or Hulu Plus, what exactly does the Warner Archive Instant service offer that is unique?
We found out some key points about the new streaming service from Carl Samrock who is representing the Warner Archive Collection for Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and Warner Digital Distribution:
"Warner Archive Instant offers fans digital access to hundreds of rare and hard-to-find films and TV shows from deep within the studio’s vault,", explains Samrock, "ranging from the silent ‘20s all the way to the acid-washed ‘80s."
"Many of the titles will be made available in 1080p HD for the first time."
The available content will also be consistently refreshed. What devices are currently supported for viewing it on?
"Subscribers can stream films instantly to their PCs, Macs, and Roku set-top boxes", explains Carl Samrock. "Warner Archive Instant is also actively developing support for additional devices."
The Warner Bros. Entertainment library, from which Warner Archive Instant content is solely derived, is "the industry’s largest", according to Carl Samrock. The library includes WB’s own works in addition to those of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (pre-1986), RKO Radio Pictures, Allied Artists, Monogram, Lorimar, New Line Cinema, Castle Rock Productions, and more.
And price? Currently the Warner Archive Instant service is offered at $9.99 per month with a two-week free trial.
In conclusion, it would appear the aim of Warner Archive Instant is a focus on Warner Bros.' classic titles, many not listed with other video streaming services, with the rarity of their catalog being the selling point.
