ARROW is set to become the essential streaming service for the very best in modern arthouse and cult cinema. Launched at the beginning of February, and with curated exclusives, director-focused seasons and a wide range of powerful, challenging films, the service seeks to satisfy the cinephile who is looking for something beyond the chaotic deluge of quantity over quality that other services are built on. With ARROW you’ll find the cool, the cult, the classic and the controversial. We can’t wait.
The offering features both film and TV strands, with series such as The Bridge and the accalimed Italian crime drama Gomorrah standing alongside films from directors such as Lars Von Trier, Brian De Palma, Dario Argento, David Cronenberg and Park Chan-wook. Many of the works on offer are curated into themed Essentials – collections of films gathered by genre, theme or decade. This method will allow film lovers to dive in quickly to films they love, and discover many more they may be interested in.
The service is available now on these devices: Roku (all Roku sticks, boxes, devices, etc), Apple TV; iOS devices, Android TV and mobile devices, Fire TV (all Amazon Fire TV Sticks, boxes, etc), and on all web browsers at www.ARROW-Player.com. There is also a 30-day FREE trial, after which subscriptions are available for £4.99 monthly or £49.99 annually which is a great deal. The month of February sees ARROW start as they mean to go on, with the exclusive premiere of Adam Stovall’s A Ghost Waits, curated director seasons of film from Alejandro Jodorowsky and Lars Von Trier, 4K UHD versions of Italian horror classics Demons and Demons 2 as well as film such as Wild Tales, 13 Assassins and one of our favourite found footage films of all time – [REC].
Another element of the service which will be seen a godsend to cinephiles is the inclusion of ARROW Stories – which will feature interviews, trailers, documentaries and other extras to complement their main offering.
ARROW appears to be so much more than just another streaming service, with love and care taken to ensure that those who want to dive beneath the blockbuster surface can find the very best of cinema on offer. Here’s a trailer to show you what it’s all about.
