BT ‘in talks to join Britbox’

BT said to have held preliminary talks with ITV

BT is reportedly in talks to join the BBC and ITV in new streaming service Britbox.

According to The Sunday Telegraph, BT has held preliminary discussions with ITV about a multi-million pound investment into the service.

However, the report suggests a disagreement over the valuation of the service could lead to a change of heart from BT.

As previously revealed, Britbox is expected to launch in the second half of 2019, with ITV announcing in May that it was “on track” to have the Netflix rival up and running by the end of 2019.
