The subscription video-on-demand streaming service (SVOD) already launched in the US, Canada and the UK. This includes classic and contemporary British series as well as exclusive and premiere drama, crime, mystery and comedy titles.
Britbox will be the exclusive home of the Doctor Who range from 1963 to 2019, which includes all 13 doctors. The platform will also host premiere shows including the reboot of All Creatures Great and Small starring Nicholas Ralph, Rachel Shenton and Callum Woodhouse.
« We’ve looked through the extensive catalogs of BBC Studios and ITV to get thousands of hours of classic and contemporary mystery, crime, drama and comedy titles up and running, » said Moira Hogan, Country Manager of Britbox Australia.
« This is just the beginning, with many more popular UK series, territorial premieres, exclusives and originals released on BritBox every month.
« BritBox will also be home to a variety of recent and previously aired series that viewers may have missed for the first time and that are now available for on-demand streaming in one location. ”
“Australians have an affinity with British television and the launch of BritBox in Australia is a unique opportunity to capitalize on that passion and nostalgia. We look forward to establishing ourselves with the Australian streaming audience. ”
BritBox Australia is already working with its global team to bring the BritBox original series directly to Australian audiences, starting with the newly commissioned series of sketch satire comedy Spitting Image by original show artist Roger Law, which after 20 years hiatus returns.
The ad-free streaming platform was developed as a 50/50 joint venture between BBC Studios and British commercial broadcaster ITV. BritBox is available for $ 8. 99 per month or $ 89. 99 a year for Australians. It joins other players in the market including Netflix, Stan, Disney, and 10 All Access, which will be renamed Paramount next year.
« BritBox is an integral part of BBC Studios’ future strategy in Australia. The global growth of BritBox has been really impressive and there is no doubt that as part of our partnership we have invested heavily in the success of BritBox in Australia ”, says Martin Goswami, strategic partner and sales director of the ITV group.
“This partnership offers a unique platform to give Australians what they want. The very best of British creativity in a streaming format. BritBox gives consumers the ability to enjoy ITV’s most popular UK content anytime, anywhere. ”
