BritBox, the streaming service created by the BBC and ITV, has added Chromecast, Panasonic and Vestel TVs to its device line-up.
According to the streamers own figures, BritBox is now easily accessible on around 10 million devices, which represents one third of video-on-demand homes. By next Spring BritBox said it is aiming to be available on around 20 million devices, and two thirds of the 21 million VoD homes in the UK.
Smart TVs using the Vestel platform include Toshiba, JVC, HITACHI, Bush, Digihome, Finlux, Logik, Luxor, Polaroid and Techwood.
Reemah Sakaan, group launch director for ITV SVoD, commented: “We are rolling out more ways of watching BritBox all the time, and are thrilled to confirm our partnerships with Chromecast, Vestel and Panasonic in time for Christmas. We look forward to adding even more ways to enjoy the best of British creativity in 2020, including more FreeView Play sets, YouView devices and Amazon FireTV.”
