The BBC have announced a huge new boxset deal which will bring a heap of entertainment to the streaming service, including the first three seasons of Peaky Blinders, hit series Taboo, and the Golden Globe-winning Wolf Hall.
For David Attenborough fans, 2001’s Blue Planet, 2006’s Planet Earth, last year’s Planet Earth II and 2011’s Frozen Planet will all be available for streaming, alongside every series of Line of Duty and Happy Valley, and series three and four of Sherlock.
There’ll also be some classic Eastenders Christmas specials added to the service, so you won’t be short of something to watch over the festive period.
Charlotte Moore, director of content at the BBC, said: “There is no need to go anywhere else this Christmas because we have an even richer offer across the BBC than ever before.”
Tony Hall, the BBC’s director general, has previously said he wants to raise the profile of BBC iPlayer, in order to compete with the likes of Netflix: “We need it to make the leap from a catch-up service to a must-visit destination in its own right,” he said.
Peaky Blinders recently returned for a fourth season.
