Can I get Britbox on Sky?

Currently BritBox is not yet available on Sky channels.

Sky says the firm has now ruled out an agreement with BritBox although a spokesperson told an immediate deal is “currently unlikely”.

However, if you have Sky it’s unlikely you’ll miss much – apart from Spitting Image – as Sky already boasts a number of the flagship box sets provided on BritBox, including Gavin and Stacey, Only Fools and Horses, and Ab Fab.
