BBC and ITV’s ‘BritBox’ streaming service arrives in the US

The BBC and ITV have banded together to launch their own subscription streaming service in the US. They’ve teased “BritBox_US” before, but now it’s actually here, for $6.99 per month on the web, Apple TV and Android (Roku, Chromecast and iOS apps are in the works.) If you’ve wanted a Netflix equivalent for Top Gear, Doctor Who and The Great British Bake Off, however, you’ll be sorely disappointed. At launch, the service is being propped up by older classics such as Miss Marple and Sherlock Holmes (the one starring Jeremy Brett, not the Benedict Cumberbatch reboot.) – Nick Summers, Engadget http://engt.co/2lTHBDT
