You can now watch TCM classic movies on Fandango's streaming service

In great news for classic film fans, movie ticketing company Fandango has teamed up with the Turner Classic Movies (TCM) network to add 30 iconic Hollywood titles from its revered catalogue to the Fandango At Home streaming service.

Previously known as Vudu, Fandango is owned by NBCUniversal and Warner Bros. Discovery. TCM will have its own dedicated hub on Fandango’s platform, much like it’s had on its sister company Max (though that’s become a little harder to find post-Warner Bros Discovery merge).

From April to May, there’ll be one classic TCM film per week available to watch for free on Fandango at Home, including James Dean’s iconic 1955 drama Rebel Without a Cause, Robert Aldrich’s 1967 war epic The Dirty Dozen, and the 1967 Paul Newman-George Kennedy prison drama Cool Hand Luke.

All these films have been screened at the annual TCM Classic Film Festival in LA over the last 15 years and hail from the TCM library — which includes a trove of films from Warner Bros, MGM, and RKO, some from as early as the 1920s, many of which have been lovingly preserved and restored. As part of this new partnership, Fandago at Home is the presenting sponsor for this year’s festival, which runs April 18 to 21.

“We are thrilled to join forces with Turner Classic Movies to provide fans access to beloved classic films, some for Free for the first time,” said Cameron Douglas, SVP of OTT/Streaming for Fandango, in a press statement.

“Through this new relationship, we aim to celebrate the rich cinematic history represented by TCM’s extensive film library and offer our dedicated users special deals and offers.”

Amid all this good streaming news, it’s been a pretty tumultuous time at TCM, with high profile layoffs last year, reportedly part of Warner Bros. Discovery’s cost-cutting moves, leading to backlash from Hollywood heavyweights and film enthusiasts alike.

TCM does let you stream movies from its catalogue from its own website and mobile app, but you need to punch in your account information from your cable or satellite provider.
