See they've nabbed all the Downton Abbey series too today, which will be a significant driver to the platform. It's still lacking a load of documentaries at present, I'd really like to see all the BBC OU science BBC FOUR programming appear fairly soon.
I wonder if future Channel 5 programme will go to Britbox once it's done the 30 day period on My5 or will it depend on each programme and what deal they made for streaming.
A strange one, A BAFTA production has appeared now, a talking heads film discussion interview series.
So we have
A collection of films whose communality I have yet to work out
as active participants
I've been trialling this and there's aspects about it in these early days that annoy me. The Royle Family is using those horrible fake episode titles that make it sound like some bad American sitcom ('Bills, Bills, Bills', 'Making Ends Meet', 'Another Woman?' etc). Also there are a few shows that I know should be in widescreen but are using 4:3 copies (e.g. later series of Vicar of Dibley).
And of course the big one… it doesn't support 50p so everything gets a film look. But at least it uses the phrase 'series' and not 'season'!
I'm not really a user of streaming services, their content just doesn't interest me (I have enough on live & recorded TV and YouTube to watch anyway) and I tend to prefer getting DVD/BD versions of stuff I have more than a passing interest in, but I'd be willing to take another look at Britbox in the future when the selection gets wider and hopefully they might get some rarer stuff in.
