BritBox, the joint venture between the BBC and ITV, is an on-demand streaming service that hosts a collection of some of the most popular shows in Britain.
The good news for those that have an Amazon Fire TV Stick is that you can get BritBox on Firestick devices.
Here’s how to do that.
Signing up on BritBox won’t take you more than a couple of minutes.

The exact steps for the installation process vary, based on how you bought your BritBox subscription with Firestick.
The easiest way to install the app is to download it to your Firestick. The Britbox app is available in Firestick’s app store so you don’t have to look for workarounds or cast BritBox to Firestick from your phone or tablet.

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.
