Watched a few episodes of Gavin and Stacey last night. Picture quality is good, better than iPlayer on the same device. Performance seemed fine.

This will live and die by what content they are able / willing to feed it, so It's really a wait-and-see thing for now.

In the meantime, iPlayer (and 40d etc.) aren't going anywhere so It's no hardship to throw 6 bucks at 'em and see how they do. That's about half what I was expecting to pay so it will be interesting to see if they keep that charge, or increase it.

Bonus.. Series one of The Champions is out there. I used to make my Grandad watch that when we were on holiday.

Does that count as a spoiler?

I'm HOPING they put up past series of stuff. It would be nice to catch up on some of the years I have missed in some shows.

I haven't seen an episode of Casualty in 15+ years! But I see his face on that site.

Too late to try and wriggle out of it now.

I find some of the English commercials quite entertaining, especially the John Lewis ones.

Just got my email today,

After an introductory free trial period, BritBox is only $6.99 per month — and is available now on the web, Apple TV, iPad, iPhone and will be up shortly on Android mobile phones and tablets. Roku and Chromecast follow soon.

No Amazon TV mentioned. Who uses Chromecast anymore?

A bit disappointed in its offerings, these days the only things I'm downloading are the panel shows and First Dates

I don't really need to see yet another series of Keeping up with Appearances

Is that anything like Keeping Up Appearances?

IF the shows don't appeal, then the service is not for you. Simple isn't it? No-one is forcing you to subscribe!

That's why there's Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, Acorn TV and others!

None of which offer Mock the Week or Have I Got News For You.

Ideally I'd like to stop using torrents but Britbox just looks to be the same old same old

It's like netflix was 10 years ago. The streaming option let you watch 10 year old shows, but now it has more up to date shows. I do not want to watch many things older than a year. I would like to be able to watch some BBC and ITV current affairs shows. Problem is always with copyright. For instance Mio Mao is show on channel 5 in the UK, but it is also shown on sprout in the US. Also is Britbox and BBC America related?
