BritBox Now Streaming Now Streaming 550 Episodes Doctor Who and Many Other British TV Shows

Back in the day, Amer­i­cans could watch an occa­sion­al British TV show on PBS or UHF. A lit­tle Ben­ny Hill. Some Upstairs Down­stairs, but not a whole lot more.

Those days of scarci­ty are now long gone. Last month, BBC World­wide and ITV launched Brit­box, a stream­ing ser­vice that fea­tures the biggest col­lec­tion of British TV shows ever. And, accord­ing to Nerdist, that col­lec­tion now includes 550 clas­sic Doc­tor Who episodes, orig­i­nal­ly aired between 1963 and 1989. For those not famil­iar with Doc­tor Who, Den of Geek has a handy guide that will help you get start­ed.

Brit­box cur­rent­ly offers a one-week free tri­al. Ergo, you can start binge-watch­ing some Doc­tor Who shows for the next 168 hours. After the free tri­al, the ser­vice costs $6.99 per month, and you can can­cel, has­sle free, when­ev­er you want.

Oth­er Brit­box shows include Sher­lock HolmesEas­t­En­ders, Upstairs Down­stairs, Black­ad­der, Bleak House, Inspec­tor Morsepro­grams with Louis Ther­oux, A Stitch Through Time, and more.
