If you’re subscribed to BritBox through a third-party service (like Amazon Prime Video or Apple TV), you’ll only be able to access or modify account settings through that platform.
Some TV shows and films on BritBox can be downloaded to mobile devices for later viewing. If the show you have in mind features the ‘downloads’ option on its page, then the program has download support. The downloaded content will be available on your device for 30 days, and once you begin watching you will have 48 hours to view it before it expires.
BritBox can be accessed in the United Kingdom, United States, Canada, and Australia. UK residents can watch BritBox outside the UK but only within the EU. If you’re an Australian, Canadian, or US user, BritBox is usable in Australia, Canada, and the US (with differences in show availability due to rights restrictions). The service cannot be used outside of North America and Australia (including the UK version of BritBox while in the UK).
The service does stream selected live events as well. Previous live events include the Royal Wedding, Carols from King’s, Remembrance Day, Trooping the Colour and more. Most live streams will offer encore streams for on-demand viewing a few hours after the event concludes.
The main draw of BritBox is that it’s a prime hub for many of the best TV shows produced in the UK. A second home for HBO’s Downton Abbey (2019), BritBox also features many other favorites such as Death in Paradise (2011), All Creatures Great and Small (1978), https://thestreamable.com/shows/father-brown-2013 text Father Brown (2012), and Murder, Mystery, and My Family (2018).
In addition to its many TV Shows, BritBox also has an impressive collection of films. Many of them are mysteries, like The Murder in Angel Lane (2013), Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Silk Stocking (2004), and Agatha Christie’s Seven Dials Mystery (1981), but the service also has many adaptations of Shakespeare’s works; Richard II (1978), the Winter’s Tale (1981), The Tempest (1980) and more. BritBox has a plethora of other films, as well, from a wide variety of genres ranging from musicals to sports, comedy to horror, and fantasy to documentary.
While BritBox does not have a designated kids’ section, the service did recently add programming with children in mind: Children’s Ward (1989), The Worst Witch (1988), and the first season of Press Gang (1989), Steven Moffat’s comedy-drama about a children’s newspaper. Parents can also elect to toggle on parental controls by using a 4-digit PIN.
