Stan adds BBC titles
Stan adds library titles Sherlock, Orphan Black, Top Gear, Doctor Who, Ab Fab & Fawlty Towers.
From its launch early next year it will feature library dramas such as Sherlock, Ripper Street, Orphan Black, Top Gear and Doctor Who. Also coming are Luther, Wallander, Parade’s End and Torchwood.
Comedies will include The Office, Gavin and Stacey, The Vicar of Dibley, Extras, Absolutely Fabulous and Fawlty Towers.
Children’s titles will include Charlie and Lola while David Attenborough and Louis Theroux comprise factual documentaries.
“Australians have long been entertained by BBC Worldwide’s great slate of programming. Their shows are especially loved by Australians, with British drama and comedy particularly relevant to our audience,” said Nick Forward, Stan’s Director of Content and Product.
“We’re proud to include such a broad selection of premium content for our members.”
Jon Penn, Managing Director of BBC Worldwide ANZ, said: “We’re delighted to be a launch partner for Stan in Australia, offering viewers the chance to watch some of our best loved shows on the platform from day one.”
None of the titles have been confirmed as premieres and it appears recent titles on BBC First, such as The Missing, The Fall and Peaky Blinders are outside the current deal.
Stan is yet to announce a launch date or price.
