Soumya Sriraman, President of BritBox, said, “During our first year, BritBox was able to bring some of the most in-demand British programs ‘on demand’ to US fans, some within hours or near simulcast, letting them see shows they have never been able to watch or have not seen in years. In 2018, BritBox will up the ante with our first commission, more co-productions, and more popular programming and star power from all genres appealing to new subscribers along with our very loyal existing members.”
