BritBox is a new online digital video subscription service, serving the United Kingdom, United States, Canada, and Australia and, from Friday, South Africa.
It's a joint venture between the BBC and ITV and will rival the likes of Netflix, Showmax, and Apple TV in offering viewers on-demand viewing of their favorite TV shows.
