If you want to know how much a BritBox subscription will set you back, we've compiled all the information you'll need to help you decide whether it's worth picking up.

Here’s all the info you need to know how much BritBox costs...

How much does BritBox cost in the US?

A BritBox subscription costs $7.99 per month, but if you know you want to commit long-term you can subscribe annually for $79.99 a year, which will save you nearly $14 a year.

How much does BritBox cost in the UK?

BritBox is similarly affordable in the UK. The rolling contract costs £5.99 a month, but you can instead opt for an annual subscription which will cost you £59.99 a year. 

That annual subscription saves you roughly £12, meaning you essentially get 12 months' worth of BritBox access for the price of 10 if you go fr the yearly plan.

Does BritBox have a free trial?

New BritBox subscriptions come with a seven-day free trial in both the UK and the US, so you can check out the service and see if you're interested in what's on offer before your trial period is up. 

Just don't forget to cancel your plan at least 24 hours before the trial to make sure you don't get charged if you decide the service isn't right for you.

Is BritBox free with Amazon Prime?

Whilst you can add BritBox to your Prime Video subscription as a Prime Video Channel, you'll still have to pay for your subscription. That's because adding BritBox to your Prime Video package is the same as adding any other channel like HBO or Showtime. 

In order to watch BritBox on Prime Video, you'll need an active Prime Video or Amazon Prime subscription and then you'll have to pay the additional fee for the BritBox subscription. Currently, an Amazon Prime subscription will set you back $14.99/£8.99 a month or $138/£95 if you'd prefer to go for an annual subscription.

Is BritBox free with Apple TV?

Unfortunately not. Just like the Prime Video Channel, you can subscribe to BritBox through Apple TV, but you'll still need to pay for the service (unless you're eligible for a free trial).
