BBC Worldwide & ITV have announced the launch of their BritBox SVOD service in the US market. The platform includes an extensive digital catalogue of British Content through an ad-free subscription plan.

"BBC and ITV are known for a vast array of diverse and award-winning programming that fans in the U.S. love and want to watch," said Soumya Sriraman, President, BritBox. "Those fans now have a one-of-a-kind SVOD service option that offers a single point of access to an extensive collection of outstanding British programming to discover and enjoy."

BritBox includes streaming access to several drama premieres never-before-seen in the US, including 'New Blood,' 'Tutankhamun,' 'The Moonstone,' and 'In The Dark,' along with season premieres of drama favorites like 'Cold Feet' and 'Silent Witness.' In addition, the platform's "Now" category features a collection of soaps and shows that will be available as soon as 24 hours after their UK broadcast, including titles like 'Eastenders,' 'Emmerdale,' and 'Holby City.' Likewise, the service also offers a library of British classics like 'Brideshead Revisited,' 'Pride and Prejudice,' 'Upstairs Downstairs,' 'State of Play,' 'Inspector Morse,' 'Rosemary and Thyme,' 'Keeping Up Appearances,' 'Fawlty Towers' and more. Finally, BritBox includes curated playlists of content as well, including "Best of British Comedy," "Iconic Detectives," "Literary Adaptations," and "Very British Beginnings" -- which spotlights actors such as Daniel Craig and Emily Blunt early in their careers.

BritBox is now available in the US for $6.99 per month through the web, AppleTV, iPhone, iPad, and Android mobile phones and tablets. Support for Roku and Chromecast will be added soon as well. New users can also receive an introductory free trial.
