Hundreds of hours of Channel 4 TV series, including global hit franchise The Inbetweeners, will be available to buy on blinkbox in the UK and Ireland after the broadcaster signed a major content deal with the streaming service.
Customers can now buy the three The Inbetweeners TV series on Tesco’s VOD platform, alongside other hit shows, such as Peep Show, Skins, Derek starring Ricky Gervais and acclaimed conspiracy thriller Utopia. Also joining the service will be some recent Channel 4 films, such as Stone Roses: Made of Stone, The Imposter and Pantani: Accidental Death of a Cyclist. Many new Channel 4 programmes will also become available during the lifetime of the partnership.
blinkbox Movies Managing Director Adrian Letts comments: “Channel 4 has a well-earned reputation for creating some of the best content in the world so we’re delighted to be able to offer our customers the choice to enjoy so many iconic TV shows and great movies with us on their favourite devices.
