BritBox goes live with C4 and BT partnerships



BritBox, the new subscription video-on-demand service, is now live, following six weeks of public beta-testing.

Adding to its previously announced collection of box sets from the BBC, ITV and Channel 5, a three-year deal with Channel 4 will see 1000+ hours being added from All 4 – with a range of comedy, drama and non-scripted programmes from across the service, including new series – and for the first time to any streamer, an exclusive Film4 curated service featuring iconic British films. 

BritBox will bring All 4 to the service in Spring 2020, with new series being available 31 days following transmission of the last episode on Channel 4. Film4 will follow later in 2020.

Alex Mahon, CEO at Channel 4 said:
“Channel 4 has always showcased distinctive and diverse British content and, in a world of almost unlimited choice, our public service brand values are more important than ever for viewers. The opportunity to collaborate as PSBs on BritBox extends our track record of partnership and will ensure there is a compelling single destination for the very best high quality, home-grown content.”

Additionally, it has been confirmed that BT is partnering with BritBox to "create a range of products and offers that feature access to BritBox for millions of customers across its brands and services". As part of the deal EE will be the exclusive mobile partner for BritBox. Further details are due to be revealed in the coming months.

BritBox costs £5.99 a month. Details at www.britbox.co.uk
