You may have seen earlier today we've announced that Virgin TV customers can now enjoy access to the Britbox app

Millions of Virgin TV homes will now be able to access the best of British entertainment, starring the finest home-grown talent, including the likes of Broadchurch, Downton Abbey, Vera, Only Fools and Horses and Love Island. BritBox also offers exclusive original content including the hotly anticipated second season of period drama Sanditon – launching next week – and Hugh Laurie’s adaptation of Agatha Christie’s Why Didn’t They Ask Evans?, which will be available to subscribers from mid April.

With BritBox now available on Virgin TV, customers who subscribe to the streaming app can tune in to a host of brilliant British programmes, with new shows and films added every week so there’s something for everyone.

From the launch of ITVX later this year BritBox will also be available to Virgin TV customers within the premium tier of the new ITVX app on Virgin Media O2’s TV platform.

Tom Price, BritBox UK’s Commercial Director said:  We are thrilled to bring BritBox to Virgin TV customers, building on the multi-year partnership ITV and Virgin Media O2 announced last year.  Launching Britbox on Virgin TV means that even more customers now have easy access to the best of British entertainment, including original dramas Magpie Murders and just in time for Sanditon Series 2

David Bouchier, Chief TV and Entertainment Officer at Virgin Media O2 said:

“BritBox is a fantastic addition to Virgin Media’s TV platform, offering our customers access to their favourite British programmes along with host of top TV channels and apps – all in one place.”
