Britbox launches on Amazon Channels in the US

BritboxBBC Worldwide and ITV’s US subscription video-on-demand service, Britbox, is now available via Amazon’s Channels service.

Amazon Prime members in the US can subscribe to BritBox for US$6.99 per month to gain access to the service’s line-up of British TV programmes.

“The initial rollout of BritBox earlier this year was met with a great response from British TV lovers and Anglophiles, surpassing our expectations,” said BritBox president, Soumya Sriraman.

“As BritBox continues on an upwards trajectory, this expansion onto Amazon Channels will provide the opportunity to reach even more loyal, and potentially new, fans.”

BBC Worldwide and ITV announced Britbox at the end of last year and said they aim to roll out the service in other international markets after the US.

AMC Networks, which already runs BBC America with BBC Worldwide, is a minority partner in the service.

Britbox claims to offer the most comprehensive collection of British television available digitally and is the exclusive US SVOD home to UK programs like In The Dark, The Moorside, Mum, and the adaptation of Zadie Smith’s NW.
