Fandor - International, Indie and Classic Films

Anyone here subscribe to Fandor?

https://www.fandor.com/

It's a streaming service that specializes in independent, international and classic films. There are apps for Roku, Chromecast, Android, Kindle and iPad/iPhone.

They have a great selection of obscure Cult, Horror and Foreign films from companies like Severin, Synapse, eOne, Something Weird, Tartan, Kino Lorber, Media Blasters, Tai Seng, VCI, and Criterion.

It looks like they just dropped their subscription price. Previously, they charged $10/mo or $90/yr. The new prices are $7.50/mo or $70/yr.



I tried them out before. Love the movie selection, although I wish there were more HD titles. I wasn't crazy about the high price, which is why I dropped my membership. But those new prices look pretty decent. I might go for the annual plan.

With that price drop, I think I'll sign back up.

Best deal of the weekend! Been debating joining for months. Glad I waited.

Re: Fandor - International, Indie and Classic Films

I've been a member for a few months. They'd offered me a renewal rate for $4/month, which was a decent price.

I'm a little disappointed that they don't seem to add much. There's a batch of new criterion titles every other week. Those rotate in and out. But other than that, nothing that really interests me.

My main reason for subscribing is their decent selection of Horror films. They have some rare giallos, cult movies and classics. But Shudder has picked up a lot of them in the past year.

I've got around 20 movies on my watchlist. I should probably get around to watching those and cancel my subscription.

Thanks. I wonder if they get to keep the Criterion cycle after that TCM service starts?

Re: Fandor - International, Indie and Classic Films

As you can see from my post above, I signed up during last year's sale and have been very happy with the service. Fandor quickly became my most watched streaming service and I probably still have 150 titles in my queue, almost all of them cult and obscure titles.

I do agree that the they don't add things at the same pace as other channels but their existing library is so extensive that I haven't minded as yet. In fact, I came back to this thread looking for another annual sale!

Bottom line: if you're a fan of cult films or art house fare, they are a great compliment to Netflix and Amazon.

I just noticed Fandor is now available as an Add-On Service at Amazon. And the price is only $3.99/month.
