BBC Worldwide sign deal with  the streaming platform Stan

Nine and Fairfax’s streaming service Stan has just signed a content deal with BBC Worldwide, which states that a selection of BBC Worldwide programs will be available on the Stan platform.

 
This agreement with BBC Worldwide will flesh out its catalogue offering, with series currently under broadcast deals with some Australian networks including Sherlock (Nine), Ripper Street (Ten), Orphan Black (SBS), Top Gear (Nine) and Doctor Who (ABC) all available to Stan’s members to watch instantly from the launch of the platform.

There will also be other back catalogue shows including The Office, Gavin and Stacey, The Vicar of Dibley, Extras, Absolutely Fabulous, Fawlty Towers and dramas such as Luther, Wallander, Parade’s End and Torchwood. All episodes can be watched in full HD on multiple platforms including televisions, tablets, computers and mobile phones.

Stan director of content and product Nick Forward said: “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. We’re proud to include such a broad selection of premium content for our members.”

 
 

Jon Penn, managing director of BBC Worldwide ANZ, said they were “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.”

The launch date is unknown, but it should be soon as Netflix is arriving in Australia and New Zealand in March 2015.
