How to watch BritBox


General

How does the free trial work?

You can try us free for 30 days. If you're enjoying your BritBox trial, then you can keep going as your subscription will automatically continue for as long as you want it. Cancelling is fine too. Just do it at least 24 hours before your 30 days are up, and you won’t be charged. There's no commitment and no contract.


How much is it?

BritBox is free for the first 30 days and then just £5.99 a month. As part of your subscription, you get unlimited access to hundreds of the best British boxsets and programmes that you won't find anywhere else.


Why are some shows no longer available, and when will they be back?

BritBox needs to secure proper licences for our content, and those licences are granted for a limited period of time. If a licence for a show has expired, we can often extend it, but sometimes we have to remove it from the service.


Can I watch on multiple devices?

Yes, you can access BritBox on the web, your Apple TV, Samsung TV and iOS and Android devices.


Can I buy a gift subscription to BritBox?

Currently, we don’t offer gift subscriptions.


Does BritBox have the biggest collection of British boxsets?

Yes, we have the biggest collection of British boxsets* in comparison to other SVOD providers. Ampere Analysis independently verified this on 23rd October 2019. Check out below for the proof!
