Britbox UK

Post by Whovastron » Sun Nov 17, 2019 5:11 pm

Hey, I wasn’t in the know about this until yesterday, and it doesn’t even seem to have been reported on thedoctorwhosite either. But Britbox uk launched last week. And from Boxing Day, every classic Doctor Who episode will be available on it! Including animated episodes and the unaired pilot!

For only £5.99 a month too, pretty darn good deal if you ask me. I’ll definitely be doing a marathon as it removes the hassle of DVD’s!

Personally I prefer DVDs over streaming, with a streaming platform the content providers can remove the show(s) if and whenever they want to. If the BBC want to stop me watching my DVDs they've got to break in and wrestle them from me. Plus DVDs don't require the internet and I'm not sure what's a hassle about them. That's just me of course and I'm notoriously old fashioned when it comes to telebox viewing.

Still it's good they're putting all the classic Who up for you streamers out there, more people who watch the classics the better.

I like muh DVDs. You can’t go looking through a town’s charity shops for a DVD. That’s half the fun, really, finding them.

The hassle of having to put them in, wait for the menu, and then switching the disc out for the next story. I can just have it playing in the background now and now worry

"I say old chap, shall I take the Rolls or the Jaaaag, I just can't decide, what?" 🤔

This is an example of an 'aristocrat world problem' which I should think would be above 'first world'.
