BritBox has reached 1 million subscribers, doubling its membership in just over one year since January 2019. The streaming service that delivers BBC content to U.S. viewers started three years ago in March 2017.
“This is an incredible milestone for our nimble team at BritBox,” stated Soumya Sriraman, CEO & President of BritBox. “Our content mix of known, now, and new British TV shows is a potent concoction of programming which remains unbeatable.”
The streaming service’s demographic is mainly women age 45 and up. BritBox boasts the biggest streaming collection of British TV, including dramas, comedies, mysteries, documentaries, soaps, lifestyle and more. Along with popular British series like Midsomer Murders and Vera, BritBox has more recently begun to delve into original content including a spinoff of Father Brown called Sister Boniface.
“Today is a real achievement from an ambitious SVOD service. Reaching the million mark means more people than ever are discovering BritBox’s rich offer of new and classic British shows. We look forward to BritBox continuing on this trajectory,” said Tim Davie, CEO BBC Studios.
“It’s great to see BritBox reach its landmark one millionth subscriber in North America. Subscribers really value and love the unique and unrivaled British TV content we offer. To achieve profitability in less than three years is also a fantastic achievement and is a boost to our international expansion plan,” added Carolyn McCall, Chief Executive, ITV.
