BBC TV has announced the upcoming launch of a BBC streaming service for American Anglophiles.
Several BBC shows streaming on Netflix have seen great success in the U.S., most notably Sherlock, the modern update on Arthur Conan Doyle's classic detective series. In addition, Doctor Who has also gained praise among American audiences -- an incredibly long-running show about an ageless scientist who whizzes around time and space in a phone booth. The new BBC streaming service will offer a more expansive selection to American consumers.
This BBC streaming player will follow in the footsteps of platforms like HBO Go, which introduced a model in which networks release their original content online exclusively through their own designated streaming services. The BBC streaming service will have the same high quality programming as its HBO equivalent, with the added exotic appeal of the English accent.
