BBC To Launch Netflix And Amazon Prime Rival | TV News
I would pay for this. With the Government’s white paper tying the BBC iPlayer to the TV license, and that being linked to inflation, the timing for the BBC to be given the green light to release their own home grown rival to Netflix and Amazon Prime seems to be the perfect timing. The new paid-for subscription service would charge viewers to watch BBC programmes after a 30-day window.
The service may include some original content to sweeten the deal, the BBC premiering a small range of comedies, dramas and documentaries. This has been welcomed by the Government, who has commented:
The Government “welcomes the BBC’s commitment to develop and test some form of additional subscription services”.
