Some confusion was created in a recent article on slate.com about streaming services. Though corrected, the piece contained a lot of misinformation about Warner Archive Instant (WAI) ; therefore, we wanted to clarify what our service is.
Warner Archive Instant (WAI) is the new specialized video streaming service dedicated to making available rare and hard to find content. The service offers many unique classics (in HD 1080p), not currently available on Blu-ray or elsewhere … targeted to longtime as well as new film enthusiasts.
Here are some key points about WAI:
· Warner Archive Instant content is drawn solely from the Warner Bros. Entertainment library, the world’s largest of any studio. The library is composed of films from Warner Bros. Pictures, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (pre-1986), RKO Radio Pictures, Allied Artists, Monogram, Lorimar, New Line Cinema, Castle Rock Productions, and more
· WAI offers fans and cinephiles digital access to hundreds of rare and hard-to-find films from deep within the studio’s film vault, ranging from the silent ‘20s all the way to the acid-wash ‘80s.
· Subscribers can stream films instantly to their PCs, Macs, and Roku set-top boxes.
· Content is consistently refreshed, allowing plenty of time to explore and discover the studio’s vast film library.
· WAI streaming service is offered for $9.99/a month.
· While there may be some cross-over with the larger streaming services on some films, WAI is really about providing very deep classic titles and heretofore unavailable TV programming.
