“BritBox Now” brings Brit telly bang up-to-date
I’ve long been singing the praises of BritBox for bringing brilliant Brit telly to America, but the BBC/ITV streaming service is getting even better. Not only does it offer an extensive collection of classic TV favourites (from Dad’s Army to Downton Abbey) but BritBox is also broadcasting even more current content from the UK right now, under the title of erm, “Now”. Pretty handy for keeping up with all the latest telly gossip from back home.
Many of BritBox’s hit series are available within hours of their UK broadcast with the service’s “Now” feature – including all the favourite soaps (EastEnders, Emmerdale, Coronation Street, Casualty and Holby City); dramas such as Cold Feet, starring Golden Globe nominee James Nesbitt, and Vera starring Oscar nominee Brenda Blethyn; reality programming such as Escape From The Country and Countryfile; panel shows such as Pointless and QI; news shows such as Good Morning Britain; and simulcasts of major live UK events such The Queen’s Christmas Message.
Right now on “Now” (sorry!) I’m most excited to see the latest episodes of The Bay (series 2), another original BritBox co-production, as well as the brand new mystery drama Traces.
For anyone who thought the BritBox catalogue contains only golden oldies, think again - it’s actually so much more. BritBox’s 1.5 million subscribers enjoy the latest and greatest British telly; Indie Wire calls it ”the Hulu alternative for all your UK programming needs”.
And with even more current content, BritBox is becoming bang up-to-date.
So next time your friends across the pond want to online chat about Corrie or ask “Who’s watching The Bay tonight?”, you’ll be right there with them.
