It looks like the BBC is getting into the streaming business in a big way.
The Telegraph reported today that the BBC would be launching a Netflix competitor in collaboration with their own commercial rival ITV.
The report says that the service would carry both companies archive content as well as new series as Amazon and Netflix have done.
British Culture Secretary John Whittingdale said of the move to a streaming service, “We’re moving into a different world where more and more content is going to be made available on demand. Collaboration with other broadcasters and other production companies we think is important.”
The BBC also noted it does not plan to put any existing series behind a pay wall when the service is launched and would still be available for free broadcast.Follow us:
