A new streaming service for film and TV content has been announced, but this one is not like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, or HBO Max. The new service is called Struum, and it aims to offer an avenue for people to stream shows and movies from various other streaming services without having to buy a subscription to each of them individually.
The service comes from industry veterans at Walt Disney Co. and Discovery Inc. Co-founder Paul Pastor told The Wall Street Journal that Struum would help shine a light on smaller-scale streaming services that have great content but people aren’t necessarily aware of.
Struum said it has already reached deals with almost three-dozen services–spanning more than 20,000 movies, shorts, and TV shows–but the company declined to mention any by name.
