Binge Watch BritBox
Binge Watch BritBox – BritBox is an online digital video subscription service, founded by BBC Studios and ITV plc, operating in nine countries across North America, Europe, Australia and South Africa.
When it comes to good streaming content, BritBox might be niche but it does not disappoint, particularly if you’re an anglophile.
Binge Watch BritBox – There’s plenty of excellent British TV to choose from, whether you love the classics or want something new.
However, the BritBox library is quite limited, despite new exclusives being added (albeit at a slow pace).
Binge Watch BritBox – And given a lot of it is licensed to existing channels in Australia, both paid and free to air, its value is rather diluted.
Binge Watch BritBox Overview
BritBox is competing in a very crowded streaming market in Australia, but it tries to stand apart from the rest of the bunch by being a specialist platform catering to a very specific taste.
As the name suggests, all you get on BritBox is British TV – arguably the best of British TV – with a plethora of sitcoms, police procedurals and documentaries to choose from.
Unlike services like Netflix and Amazon Prime, however, the BritBox library is really very limited, and new content isn’t added as regularly as we see on most other streaming platforms.
When something does drop, though, it’s usually worth your time to watch (or binge, as the case may be).
From the entire Doctor Who catalogue to the latest season of Line of Duty, plus a lot of the old classics like Fawlty Towers and Absolutely Fabulous – there really is a lot to choose from… if you really want to watch British TV.
If that specialist programming is right up your alley, then BritBox is worth the subscription price, especially since the platform has come a long way since its launch in November 2020.
Back then, you could access the app only on select TVs, but that has now been remedied, and there’s a bunch of exclusives that are really quite good.
There’s still no BritBox Originals other than Irvine Welsh’s Crime though.
BritBox is essentially an online portal for British TV boxsets and original programming, bringing all sorts of modern and legacy content from UK’s biggest broadcasters – BBC and ITV.
It’s in no way a Netflix killer, but it could be a potential disruptor if it continues to add to its library regularly.
One big temptation on BritBox has been the entire Doctor Who series – all seasons plus specials – being made available after a little delay.
Currently its real draw is legacy content – there are thousands of hours of great telly in the form of Gavin & Stacey, Miss Marple, Fawlty Towers, The Office, Black Adder and Red Dwarf.
The entirety of the original Sherlock Holmes series is on BritBox.
If you want more modern police procedurals (that the British admittedly do rather well), then there’s DCI Banks, Bancroft, Endeavour, Inspector Morse, Spooks and more.
More modern programming is also available – Line of Duty, Pembrokeshire Murders, Professor T and Luther, just to name a few.
If you’re a fan of period dramas, there’s plenty to keep you occupied.
From Jane Austin’s stories (Northanger Abbey, Mansfield Park) to Charles Dickens (Oliver Twist, David Copperfield), Poldark to Cranford – it’s all there.
