BritBox: BBC and ITV set out plans for new streaming service

Shows like Love Island, Gavin & Stacey, Gentleman Jack and Broadchurch will be on BBC and ITV's streaming service BritBox when it launches this year. ITV and BBC programmes will move on to BritBox after they have been broadcast on TV and fallen off the broadcasters' own catch-up services - BBC iPlayer and ITV Hub. BBC director general Tony Hall said the new shows that will be made specifically for BritBox would be "Future classics". The BBC and ITV launched BritBox in North America in 2017, showing programmes like Midsomer Murders, Poirot and Only Fools and Horses. ITV will own 90% of the service and the BBC's initial 10% stake could rise to 25% in the future.
