Turner has delayed the scheduled Oct. 19 launch of its much ballyhooed FilmStruck OTT movie service to November, the company said Tuesday.

The $6.99 per month service was also expected to feature the Criterion collection of movies for an additional $4 a month.
TCM and FilmStruck general manager Jennifer Dorian recently told Multichannel News that the economics for the OTT service "worked for streaming to niche audiences."
