|Britflix, New Streaming Rival To Netflix, Could Be Coming From BBC
Love “Happy Valley”? “Broadchurch”? “Wallander”? Good news: You could be in for a lot more of your favorite British shows. The BBC is launching its own streaming service called Britflix, according to a new report, and it’s poised to compete with Netflix and other streaming services.
The new service would be a collaboration between the BBC and its commercial competitor ITV, according to a report today in The Telegraph. Britflix could end up being home to all your old BBC favorites as well as the creator of its own original content, much like Netflix created “Making A Murderer” and Amazon made “The Man In The High Castle.”
The report on Britflix comes just as the BBC is set to renew its Royal Charter, and is under increasing pressure to lay out a compelling plan for its own future. UK Culture Secretary John Whittingdale just published a white paper on Thursday describing his expectations for the next 11 years of broadcasting at the BBC. The white paper may be debated by Parliament, but its final effect on the Royal Charter will still be determined by the culture secretary himself.
