The Sunday Telegraph says discussions been ITV, which makes dramas including Victoria (pictured) and Marcella and BT have already taken place, though there is disagreement over the size of the multimillion pound investment.

As both HISTORY Play and Crime + Investigation Play have content from their linear channels (both of which are carried on VM) and VM already has HISTORY and Crime + Investigation content 'on demand' within the Box Sets service, I'm not sure we need yet another separate subscription app!

Depends what's on it and whether it's advert free.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

AT&T have announced that they will launch one overall streaming service combining HBO with all other Warner content and merge their Direct TV service in with it too. Price somewhere between $15-18 per month.

It will probably be a couple of years at least before that launches in the UK, I would have thought.

Re: Netflix/Streaming Services

Of com has agreed the changes requested by the BBC which will enable them to retain box sets on their i-Player for 12 months rather than 30 days. Good move, although ITV are not best pleased as this will restrict the availability of BBC material on Britbox, thus devaluing the platform.

So much to those who thought they were cutting down on their spend.

I think what was said was that Sky do not spend enough on their original material and they needed to spend more to make up for the new stuff that was going to the streaming services.

It seems that Sky is acknowledging that.

Following the carve up of UKTV and that BBC Studios have control of Gold and Drama, would this mean we'd see content from the two channels on iPlayer in the future?
