BBC is planning a streaming service and I am so happy about it! I read an article but it did not give much detail. I know that there were several shows that I wanted to watch but could not because they only air in the UK. I could not even stream them via the BBC website, which was infuritating. Hoping that they will be on this new streaming service. The amount of British television I am able to watch is very limited because I have to wait for most to go to HULU or masterpiece theater via amazon instant video. Anyone else in the US looking forward to this?

I have Acorn TV streaming service, but it's not usually new shows or the current season of shows. It's cheap, though at $4.99 per month. I would have to see what was included in a BBC streaming service. It wouldn't be worth it for just a few shows. You can get Masterpiece Theatre via the PBS website or their streaming channel, however. It streams the day after it airs. The streaming channel is free.

@ScribbledAdNauseum I have Netflix, Hulu, Amazon and Acorn. Acorn is all British TV. But PBS is one of the free Roku channels.

The shows that would stream on this BBC streaming service wouldn't include things like Dr Who, which we can already get in the US.
