Is it a streaming service? I have heard of it, but never actually looked in to it.

I had a free trial but cancelled it just before I was charged. Really don't see the point.

Isn’t it just the same kind of stuff that is repeated all the time on the likes of UK Gold, Drama and ITV3/4?

Very much so. You may need to wait a bit longer, but with so much tv out there for free or more popular platforms, that's not really a hardship.

I have the full package with Sky Q and Netflix. What is on there that I can’t currently view?

IF YOU'RE ON EE, YOU CAN GET SIX MONTHS FOR FREE
That's the offer I had, but it expired the end of October. I think I used it about three or four times in that period.

I think they will go under in the UK within a year. I suspect there may well be enough of a market in the US to continue, but not here.

Can I view what is on there before I purchase? Do I need a box? :confused:

When the hell is Hulu coming to the UK? Not that I need another thing to subscribe to, but they have loads of stuff that isn’t on here.

That's the issue I have with BritBox. I think the majority of what they have has previously been on/or is still on iPlayer or ITV hub for free, or on platforms like Netflix, which they are never going to compete with. I bet the number of people who actively choose to subscribe after the free trial is over is very small.

I may have felt differently if their Spitting Image reboot had been any good.

I see everyone is saying Spitting Image is shit. I'm still planning to wait til they've all been shown and then get the free trial and binge them all.
