Not a bad price but I can't see what this would offer me over and above iPlayer/ITVPlayer/4OD/Demand5 + TunnelBear.

Doesn't offer anything (much) yet, anyway. But I always said I would support 'em* if they gave it a try, and so I will.

*Doesn't mean iPlayer will be leaving my TV any time soon

As an aside, 40D... Worst website ever?.. Must be running close to first prize.

Yeah 4OD is pretty bad, Demand 5 isn't much better.

If they offered all 4 channels with decent speeds I'd support them too, even if it were slightly more expensive than my current setup. But as it stands I can't lose my 'Neighbours' and 'Home & Away'

Is this BritBox just a website, or does it have an app and/or available on Xboxs and Playstations etc?

It will have apps. Started today with just the web site.

Quote:
At launch, BritBox will roll out across the web (www.britbox.com), Apple TV (4th Generation), Roku, iPhones, iPad, Android handsets and tablets. Chromecast is coming soon! We will be adding more platforms in the coming months. If you have a suggestion or a request, email us at [email protected].
The bit about the apps being there at launch is a bit premature. The Roku app they are saying on FB in the next couple of days. The iPhone app is there now.

Playback and quality seems good so far... it will be interesting to see how content is added as they ramp up.

Thanks. I wish I had read this earlier. I have been searching all over Roku looking for it

I just shot them an email asking two, very important for me, questions...

1. When will it be available for the Amazon Fire TV? (I have three of them, two in use!)...and...

2. Will all programming be commercial free?

The price of $7/Mo seems very reasonable, so I'm hoping it's not being kept low by and ad for Tide Pods right as Ian Beale is making another foll of himself!!!

Hoping the number of shows improves, which I'm sure it will, but it's already good value for me as it's got every episode of Porridge.
