Arrow horror streaming service


Arrow Video, one of the premier horror video labels in the home video space, is launching a new horror streaming service. The new service will launch in the US and Canada on October 1st, with a free 30-day trial available and then a monthly fee of only $4.99, ala Shudder. Arrow will launch with classics like Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Hellraiser 1 and 2, Ringu, and the complete Gamera run of films. Cult films are their specialty; however, plucking great and forgotten horror from nowhere and making us Monster Kids remember. Look for director Edgar Wright's top Arrow picks as well to be posted to the service. Get more info on the new venture down below.


Arrow Looks To Take On Shudder

"Arrow Video is excited to announce the bow of their new subscription-based ARROW platform, available in the US and Canada beginning October 1st. Building on the success of the Arrow Video Channel and expanding its availability across multiple devices and countries, ARROW boasts a selection of cult classics, hidden gems, and iconic horror films, all curated by the Arrow Video team. ARROW begins streaming with headliners The Deeper You Dig, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Crumbs, The Hatred, Cold Light of Day, Videoman, and The Herschell Gordon Lewis Feast. Also immediately available are perennial Halloween hits Hellraiser 1 & 2, Elvira, Ringu, the complete Gamera series, as well as full collections from the ARROW archives packed with exclusive extras, rarely seen interviews, and documentaries.
ARROW will be available October 1st in the US and Canada on the following Apps/devices: iOS (iPhones and iPads), tvOS (Apple TVs), Android (all Android devices), Fire TV (all Amazon Fire TV Sticks, boxes, etc.), Roku (all Roku sticks, boxes, devices, etc.) and on all web browsers at https://www.arrow-player.com. Arrow Video is offering fans a 30 day free trial of ARROW, and subscriptions are available for $4.99 monthly or $49.99 annually. A UK rollout is planned in 2021.





Anyone interested? Or are you completely maxed out for time and money?

Re: Arrow horror streaming service -- Launches 10/1/20

Sounds like this is the same as the Arrow Video Channel that's been available on Apple TV. Nice to see it available on other devices.

I'll probably subscribe from time to time. But I already own most of their titles on Apple TV due to the frequent $2.99 sales.

The price isn't bad. I just don't have the time. Plus looks like I probably already own many of these titles.

Yeah, that’s about enough. Please stop with these nonstop rollouts of streaming services.

So this is your reaction every time a new streaming service is announced?

Picture doesn’t do my reaction justice. C’mon D, we’re way beyond saturation with so many boutique services at this point. Who has the time anymore?

Re: Arrow horror streaming service -- Launches 10/1/20

I hold no ill will towards Arrow for attempting a streaming service. It's a virtual risk-free shot that leverages their existing catalog. I do wonder about pricing. These niche services would work better if they priced their wares at $3 per month or a much steeper annual discount. I'm guessing server costs and infrastructure expenses probably precludes cheaper pricing.

Do they know the exact number of movies they will have available to stream on the start-up date?

I assume this is just more stuff that will get yanked from Shudder and Prime etc..

They've been on Apple for a long ass time. I tested the waters and it was fine for what it wast. They do not include top tiered titles, though. If you wants the more obscure titles then that's your best bet.

Re: Arrow horror streaming service

Ah, now they tell me. I signed up for it Saturday night. Oh well. I did opt for the yearly subscription price and also got a free month out of it, so it sort of works out at the end.

Re: Arrow horror streaming service

I noticed that the Arrow service is streaming the Shaw Brothers films that they have released on their labels (Shawscope Volume 1, Come Drink With Me and 8th Diagram Pole Fighter). I would sign up immediately if they got the rights of other Shaw Brothers films, once that they haven't released physically. I guess the ones that 88 Films have rights to, will be a no.
