On April 28th BritBox International will launch in Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland with thousands of hours of premium British content, including critically acclaimed BritBox Originals, exclusive new series and a vast range of TV classics on offer. From drama, crime and comedy to factual entertainment and lifestyle shows – BritBox will bring together the best of British programming, all in one place.

With a fast-growing global subscriber base, the streaming service’s Nordic debut will extend Britbox into eight countries internationally, following highly successful launches in the US, Canada, Australia, and South Africa that join BritBox in the UK.

“Adding fresh Originals to our deep range of genres and quality classics is a powerful combination that has just helped us surpass 2.5 million subscribers around the world,” said Reemah Sakaan, BritBox International CEO. “Now, the BritBox team can’t wait to bring some of Britain’s biggest established names and brightest breakthrough stars to millions of new fans in the Nordics.”

From Thursday, April 28th subscribers will be able to watch the biggest collection of British box sets, with thousands of viewing hours available from launch. A range of freshly commissioned BritBox Originals will also land during the streamer’s first year, including true crime dramas "Stonehouse" and "The Thief, His Wife, and the Canoe"; light-hearted murder mystery series "Sister Boniface Mysteries", plus lush period drama "The Confessions of Frannie Langton". BritBox will also launch exclusive new titles every month, from the highly-anticipated "Idris Elba’s Fight School" to the critically acclaimed "Anne."
