BritBox is heading to 25 countries worldwide in Europe, Asia, the Middle East, South America and Africa, owners BBC and ITV confirmed today.
The service is already available in the US, Canada, UK and is launching in Australia later this year.
Outside the UK the service is a 50/50 joint venture between BBC Studios and ITV, while the UK version is 90% owned by ITV which runs the service day to day.
Carolyn McCall, ITV CEO, said: “This international expansion plan will firmly establish BritBox as a global premium brand in a rapidly growing sector.
“Offering subscribers the best and biggest collection of British content has enabled BritBox to rapidly grow in our existing countries and as streaming continues to expand worldwide this roll out will give our distinctive streaming business truly international scale.”
Tim Davie CEO of BBC Studios said “BritBox has very quickly found a place in viewers’ hearts and we know there is further appetite amongst international audiences who love great British content.
“We are actively appraising new markets to introduce the service and are very excited about the imminent launch in Australia.”
