BritBox, the SVoD platform set up by ITV and BBC Worldwide, has now launched in Canada.
The service will showcase the best in British TV including Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway, Emmerdale and Casualty as well as classic shows such as Doctor Who, Poirot and Keeping Up Appearances.
Soumya Sriraman, president, BritBox North America, said, “We know that Canadians have a deep affinity for British culture and the extraordinary television programmes produced in the UK, so launching BritBox in Canada has always been at the top of our list.
“The fact that we can also, for the first time ever, premiere some of the most popular British programmes and big special events such as Trooping the Colour as soon as 24 hours after their UK premiere is – hopefully – the cherry on the sundae.”
BritBox is now available through web, iPhone, iPad, android phone & tablets, Apple TV, Chromecast, and Roku.
