Streaming service BritBox is now available on the Freesat platform for UK viewers.
The service is also available on Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV and Google Chromecast, as well as LG, Samsung, Panasonic, Toshiba, JVC, Hitachi and Bush TVs.
Earlier in the summer ITV CEO Carolyn McCall said the so-called British Netflix is “on around 20 million devices and in 60 per cent of streaming households,” in the UK.
Alistair Thom, CEO of Freesat commented, “2020 has been a huge year for Freesat with the release of our new set top boxes and the welcoming of new content partners to the platform. The launch of BritBox promises even greater programming choice and we cannot wait to bring its mix of the best of British TV to our customers as we’re sure that it will resonate significantly with them.
“In these stressful times, Freesat is always focused on delivering the best and most engaging content for viewers. We know that they will really appreciate access to such a comprehensive range of shows, as well as being able to embrace all the original commissions that BritBox has planned over the coming months.”
