I see #BritBox goes live today, so for those of you already paying for TV licence, Sky, Netflix, YouTube Premium, NowTV, BT TV, AppleTV or PrimeTV you can now rejoice in the fact that you can pay AGAIN for repeats of the same old shit they've been peddling for the last 40 years.

Also people didn’t moan about paying for BBC content twice when they bought a Blackadder DVD from HMV for £12.99 #BritBox

#BritBox interested but can't access the listing so don't know what's on, not a great start

I imagine these tedious "I pay my license fee" fuckos moaning about having already paid for #Britbox also used to swan into HMV and run off with armfuls of BBC DVDS because they'd "already paid for them" also. Whining Taxpayers' Alliance weasels.
