    It seems a bit silly. When we've already paid for it to be produced in the first place you then have to pay once more if you want to watch it again.
    Like on a DVD?

    "Watch anywhere."

    "Unfortunately, Britbox is exclusively available in the United States and Canada."

    Remember all that stuff you didn't watch when it was free? Well here it is all together for the low low price of £5.99 a month.

    It's going to be ONdigital all over again. Except then it was Sky they were trying to take on with their shit back catalogue, and now it's Netflix and Amazon and Disney directly.

    I give it a year.

    It is cheaper than the TV licence. Just need to stop BBC being allowed to force it on anyone watching any live broadcasts on any channel.

    I wonder how comprehensive a library it will have (obviously after the 12 month BBC timeout and shorter ones for other channels) once rights sold elsewhere get sorted out. Would still only be an odd month thing at best in my case. Gave up on the licence years ago when I realised I was quite happy with streaming services and rarely actually watched BBC stuff.

    I probably watch BBC more than anything else these days (CBeebies and history docs on BBC 4 mostly) but I'm not sure I'd be paying six quid a month to binge old series of 2.4 Children or Tomorrow's World

    I might try the free month to watch some classic Dr. Who.

    Thereís definitely potential to appeal to the nostalgia crowd, if itís got Dogtanion and the Three Muskahounds Iíll be hooked.

    Dogtanian and the Three Muskehounds was Spanish, not British.
    You can watch it on youtube if you want. But you don't because it's fucking awful.

    Fun fact: the "da-da-dun, da-da-dun" bit in the title song is actually the words " D'Artacan, D'Artacan" which is the name Dogtanian had in the original Spanish before it was dubbed.

    This might sucker me in if they bother with a PS4 app
