Not sure if it’s been mentioned already, but EE customers can have 6 months BritBox on EE. From what I can see there’s no commitment after 6 months, nor is it if you take out a new deal or anything of that nature. I might give it a go myself later on, for the sake of 6 months free I think there’s nothing to lose.

Further to the above post, I’ve taken the plunge and taken the 6 months through EE. The UI (on Amazon Fire TV) takes a bit of getting used to in comparison to Netflix, Prime Video and Disney, but content wise it seems decent enough.

Also surprised to see a number of Classic Coronation Street episodes on the platform too.

Shame they are only adding pilot episodes and not the full series for a fair few shows. Hopefully that's just the start and full series will be put on eventually.


I would imagine they're testing the waters.


They need to be diving in with content like this, not skimming the water with their little toe.

Apart from anything else how can they calculate the popularity of something with a single pilot episode?

It's a bit strange how Christmas specials of shows are listed separately than the main run. One Foot In The Grave being an example, which is also missing the 97 xmas special despite having the others.

The 1997 special is on there: https://www.britbox.co.uk/program/One_Foot_in_the_Grave_Christmas_Special_1997_Endgame_44984


The 1995 one sorry. The one with Patrick and Pippa in the hotel with the two way mirror

I currently have TWO Britbox accounts (one free courtesy of EE, one I've been paying for before I got the free one), and I am SICK of seeing ads for the service on YouTube with that bloody New Order song. Surely some sort of algorithm should pick up that I already use the service?

I think it actually works the opposite way, where they notice that you have/are interested in BritBox so shows you ads related to it. I got Netflix recently and there is now an abundance of Netflix ads on my YouTube.
