None of the existing options for viewing have gone away. Just keep using them (as will I for content I can get no other way).
If you can also afford to throw 6 bucks at the beeb then so much the better. Hopefully, if this thing gets some support, content will come.If no one ponies up for it, then it cant come as much of a surprise if it fails.

Most of the content on "BBC America" never screened on the BBC in the first place. As far as I know, that is (was?) some lash up with BBC Worldwide and AMC?

Truly amazing what they have posted on their web site.

Who owns BritBox?

BritBox is a joint venture between BBC Worldwide, the commercial arm of the BBC, and ITV, the UK’s biggest commercial broadcaster. AMC Networks, which has a joint venture with BBC Worldwide for cable channel BBC AMERICA, is investing in BritBox with a non-voting minority interest. BBC Worldwide and ITV share an equal majority stake in the joint venture.

Why can’t I find any of the BBC America shows on BritBox?

Our goal is to unlock access to more great British programmes, adding to what you can already get on BBC America and other TV and digital outlets.

If memory serves, it was TBS prior to AMC showing up. Or TLC... T something something.

I am totally with you on that. I feel guilty for watching shows for free. I do pay for BBC America, but watch very little, which makes me feel a little better. $6 a month is less than the license fee.

Just checked it out. Jesus ****ing Christ! Darling Buds Of May? Are You Being Served? ****ing Boon?!?!?! I was hoping it would be a legal iPlayer/ itv player full of stuff like Have I Got News For You, Celebrity Juice, 6 Nations! I think I'm gonna stick with my dns service at the mo. Talking of which, what do people use that still work? Both UNOtelly and Overplay stopped working for me.

Still using UNOtelly here. In fact I just renewed. No issues. I'm watching iPlayer as I write this.

Weird. I Just kept getting the message an error had occurred and nothing would work. May try reinstalling and having another go.

I was using IBVPN with success past few year. Just didn't bother renewing this year as we don't get to watch much TV with young kids. Netflix Amazon and cable gives us enough TV. Along with youtube.

I was more of a Flog It guy. Even queued once for about 5 hours to get on. They weren't interested in my junk though, never made the final cut.
