Ever since the AT&T takeover of Time Warner (now WarnerMedia) in June, the company have been heavily restructuring their digital streaming businesses. As a result of the takeover, the Korean, Chinese and Japanese entertainment streaming service – DramaFever closed on 19th October, with Turner Classic Movies streaming service – FilmStruck also due to close on the 29th November. Despite these closures, WarnerMedia has promised that they will launch a streaming service in the fourth quarter of 2019 that will feature the company’s films, television series, documentaries and animation all in one place.
