What Does The BritBox on Amazon Fire TV Stick Offer?

The key difference between BritBox and other popular streaming services, like Amazon Prime Video and Netflix, is that BritBox’s entire focus is on British TV and film.

The streaming service features nearly 300 TV box sets, including classic hits like Poirot, Fawlty Towers, and Blackladder, as well as popular TV shows like Downton Abbey, Dr Who, The Office, and Upstairs Downstairs. 

BritBox is also backed by Channel 4 and Channel 5 and you can watch your favorite films and shows that have since expired on BBC iPlayer and ITV Hub.

What’s more, BritBox plans exclusive content and original programming, though, so far, its focus has been on giving subscribers access to the classic.
