MHz Choice and Topic are merging into a single streaming service. The combined offering will be available from April 1, 2024, in the United States, and will be priced the same as a current MHz Choice subscription.

Basically, MHZ Choice is absorbing Topic whole, as the new service will operate as MHz Choice, with Kino Lorber overseeing day-to-day operations. “All of Topic’s must watch Nordic crime dramas, heart pumping thrillers and deep catalog of true-crime stories joins MHz Choice’s world-class lineup of the best mysteries, dramas and comedies from across the globe,” a new video promoting the merger explains.

For those that are already signed up to either MHz Choice or Topic, they can expect their subscription to transition to the new MHz Choice service over the next few months. At which point, they will then gain access to both libraries through the same subscription, priced at $7.99 a month, and app.

Similar to the existing MHz Choice service, new subscribers will also be able to take advantage of a 7-day free trial.

While this won’t result in a price increase from the existing MHz Choice subscriber perspective (MHz Choice currently costs $7.99/month), it is unclear whether existing Topic subscribers will encounter a price increase after they’ve been migrated over. Considering a Topic subscription currently costs $5.99 a month, a subscription to the new MHZ Choice service will cost $2 more each month.

With this more the case of Topic being absorbed by MHz Choice, there’s not expected to be too much change to the rest of the way the current MHz Choice service works and operates.
