Here’s OB pining for Britbox. A service of literal repeats. Previously offered by UK Gold and Granada Plus (and many other iterations along the way).
Just to clarify, I do not subscribe to Britbox because it does indeed consist of archive material, which does not interest me, but you may recall that at the time of that post, Britbox was promising a lot of new original material, which, apart from Spitting Image, does not appear to have arrived.

The point I was making was that as content aggregator, VM should have been offering all the streamers for subscribers to choose from, not just a small selection of them.

There's been several dramas launched over the last few months, I've seen the advertising for them. They launched another a new one about 2 weeks ago with Hugh Laurie, and Sanditon Series 2 is on Britbox first.

Ok, thanks. Those shows don't seem to have had much publicity.

Back on topic, does anyone know whether the BT Sport channels will be streamed on Warner Discovery later this year now the merger has been finalised?

Probably for the same price you can get it from BT.

Warner Discovery is not a platform. My understanding it has at least three: HBO Max (not UK till at least 2025), Discovery + and Eurosport. The latter two are also sold as a single package.

I can envisage the Eurosport and BT Sport platforms converging with a discount for those taking Discovery + and EuroSport/BT Sport. EE is now BT's main consumer brand for the future so BT may not have a problem fading out the BT Sport brand, especially as the long-term head of BT Sport has now left.

Expect lots of offers to BT and EE customers to make it worth their while taking Discovery +.

In the long-term, I do think we could see a combined Warner Brothers Discovery streaming service to potentially rival Now TV in breadth of content. But I suspect sport would still be sold as an add-on and separately due to its cost. Commercial pressures - why turn away good money? - may encourage it to still wholesale some or all channels to Sky and VM.

Not long. I only saw the reports of the reports of the deal fairly recently.
