BritBox streaming platform arrives on Amazon

In return for parting with their dollars anglophile customers will be granted access to thousands of hours of British TV

In return for parting with their dollars anglophile customers will be granted access to thousands of hours of British TV shows such as Dr Who, Poirot and Upstairs Downstairs, as well as movies like Pride and Prejudice.

Introduced last December the format also offers up to the minute premieres of newly commissioned programming such as In The Dark, The Moorside and Mum – in addition to a Now function which delivers popular episodes of popular soaps such as EastEnders and Coronation Street within 24 hours of their broadcast.

Soumya Sriraman, president, Britbox, said: “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.”

Anyone interested in dipping their toes into this content cornucopia can do so via the Prime Video app on TV, mobile, Amazon Fire, Fire tablets and Amazon’s website.
