have u got Britbox? have a few questions about it...

what is your experience with it? do the programs contain commercials or advertisement?

they have loads of shows I know and watch on youtube except on youtube pic and sound quality is often very poor and episodes have been chopped up with parts left out.

Britbox is certainly cheap enough for all you get.

in shows I w ant to see that is, the only thing acorn had I'd want is foyles war, I claudius, and wire in the blood. otherwise britbox has 18 shows I want to see that are not on acorn.

8. I like it. Not seen ads, I don't think. Not as many shows as I had expected, though.

10. I have both Britbox and Acorn

They are both great if you like British/Canadian/Australian/New Zealand programming. The interface for Britbox is annoying, but adequate. Each has different programs, so the two do not overlap.

Video and audio quality is very good through my Roku for both channels. No ads. Both are very cheap for the massive amount of programming you get.

12. I Have BritBox and Love It

There are no commercials and only cost $6.99 I think. I love British mysteries and they have all my favorites that I'm enjoying watching again. Poirot, Father Brown, Midsomer Murder, Vera etc.

13. Thanks for mentioning Vera

I watched it up to S7 on Acorn. Britbox then got the rights to air it. But my library had S8 so I borrowed the dvd. And now I'm waiting for the word to go pick up S9.

The books are great, too.
