BritBox, the SVOD service from the BBC and ITV focused on British television, is expanding its reach with entry on Amazon Channels, an aggregated offering of subscription OTT services available to Amazon Prime members.

Like the stand-alone BritBox service, the offering through Amazon Channels also costs $6.99 per month.  Both online avenues offer a seven-day free trial to the service.

BritBox launched in the U.S. in March, and is the exclusive SVOD home to premieres here of shows such as In The Dark, The Moorside, and  Mum, and series that include Poirot, Upstairs Downstairs, Miss Marple, and classic Doctor Who.  A “Now” category offers episodes of several programs, including Eastenders and Emmerdale, 24 hours after their initial broadcast in the U.K.

“As BritBox continues on an upwards trajectory, this expansion onto Amazon Channels will provide the opportunity to reach even more loyal, and potentially new, fans,” Soumya Sriraman,  BritBox’s president, said in a statement.
