What is The Criterion Channel, and how can I watch it?

That’s a good question. What is The Criterion Channel? Well, it’s a video-on-demand subscription service, but it isn’t quite like any other streaming services you’ve come across.

The Criterion Channel doesn’t compete against the modern services with up-to-the-minute titles and the best binge-worthy box sets, or even the biggest box office pullers. It describes itself as:

“Dedicated to publishing important classic and contemporary films from around the world, in editions that offer the highest technical quality and award-winning, original supplements.”

These are the movie buff’s movies. These are the foreign and domestic classics, movies of note—and the content is continuously curated by those who know best. To clarify that fact, there are currently only four films on Criterion from IMDb’s top 100 list: Seven SamuraiHarakiriModern Times, and City Lights.

The channel features around 2,000 movies in its vast collection—dating back as far as the 1920s. International offerings come from every corner of the globe—over 60 countries so far—including those most respected in film-making you’ll find: France, Germany, India, Japan, US, and the UK.

You can search through their collection by title, director, year, or country. If you need something more specific, you can access filters by genre and decade too.
