Last year, BritBox stated that they are planning a global roll-out which would see the platform be available in up to 25 new countries.
Fans of shows like “Father Brown”, “Fawlty Towers” and “Poldark” will be able to enjoy pretty soon with the new streaming service, BritBox, coming to South Africa.
When in South Africa, the platform will provide the best in British box sets, dramas, comedies, documentaries and lifestyle shows.
The British streaming service is operated by BBC Studios and ITV and uses a comparable subscription model to Netflix and Showmax, charging customers a monthly subscription.
The platform will hold thousands of hours of premium British content and will be made available to South Africans to stream advert-free and with the option to cancel at any time.
The streaming service is currently accessible in the UK, US, Canada and Australia and will be in South Africa later this year with a vast slate of favorites and classics on the launch menu like “The Voice UK”, “Luther”, “Doctor Who”, “Father Bown”, “Vera” and “The Office”.
BritBox will provide new and regular flow of fresh programmes as soon as they come out of their broadcast and catch-up windows. This will provide viewers with hundreds of hours of new ITV and BBC content.
