BritBox UK Slashes Its Subscription Cost For A Limited Time

This post may contain affiliate links*

The UK version of BritBox, the streaming service owned by ITV (and formerly the BBC), is reducing its monthly price by 50% for up to three months, in a limited-time flash sale.

Normally, BritBox costs £5.99/month – but for the duration of the sale, you can get it for just £2.99/month – for up to three months (after a free 7-days trial).

The deal is available on both the “direct” BritBox version (which you get via their website and the official apps), and on the Amazon Prime Video Channel version of BritBox.

BritBox UK (There’s also a US version which has different content) is a streaming subscription service that curates British TV programmes from ITV, BBC, Channel 5 and Channel 4, as well as classic British films.

Some of BritBox’s content highlights include the new (and old) episodes of Spitting Image600+ episodes of the classic Doctor Who and various recent TV hits like It’s A Sin and Unforgotten – and everything is of course without any adverts.

It’s worth noting that big changes are coming to BritBox UK later this year, with it moving over to ITV’s new streaming service, ITVX.

At that point, Existing BritBox subscribers will be moved over to ITVX’s premium tier – learn more about the upcoming BritBox changes in our guide.

50% Off BritBox For The Summer

As they did this time last year, BritBox is offering a half-price sale, with an offer that ends on June 12, 2022.

Normally, BritBox costs £5.99/month, after a free trial for new customers (which is currently just 7 days – though it used to be 30 days), or £59.99/year.

Until June 12, you can use the coupon code FLASHSALE, which reduces the price to £2.99/month for up to 3 months (though you can still cancel after just one month if you wish).

Somewhat surprisingly (as that is often not the case) returning customers who signed up to BritBox in the past, can also use the code – and get the same three months for £2.99/month.

They will not, however, get the free trial, and you can’t use the code if you currently have an active subscription – this is just for new or returning customers.

Customers who sign up for BritBox via iTunes will also not be able to use this offer.


Remember that once the three months are up, the subscription will auto-renew at the normal rate (£5.99/month), so don’t forget to cancel if you don’t want that to happen.

Get The BritBox Deal On Amazon’s Prime Video Channels

Last year, BritBox was added to Prime Video Channels, as an add-on subscription for Prime Video members.

That made BritBox, which is still missing from some of the major streaming devices (primarily some Freeview Play devices and Sky Q / Sky Glass), accessible on 40 million devices.

If you prefer to get BritBox via Prime Video, there’s good news – the deal is available over there as well. Whether you’re a returning customer or a new customer, you can get it for £2.99/month for up to 3 months (but not if you already have an active subscription).

Remember, though, that Prime Video Channels are only available to Amazon Prime (or just Prime Video) members – but you can also get a 30-days free trial of Amazon Prime.

An important caveat to remember is that subscribers who sign up for BritBox as a Prime Video channel – WON’T be able to watch BritBox directly on the BritBox site, or via the standalone BritBox apps.

Instead, they will only be able to watch BritBox’ content via the Prime Video apps.

The same is also true in the other direction – if you sign up for the standalone BritBox service (via their site or apps), you won’t be able to watch the Prime Video version.
