blinkbox lets customers sample shows before they buy


blinkbox, the movie and TV streaming service from Tesco, is building on the success of last year’s Try TV on Us offer by signing a major multi-studio content deal for its return.

The service, which offers the latest release movies and TV without the need for a subscription, has reached agreement with studios including All3Media, BBC, eOne, Twentieth Century Fox, ITV, Lionsgate, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, Starz and Universal to run the special offer on a selection of popular titles until 2 March.

The pilot episode of ten time Emmy award-winning series Breaking Bad* and critically acclaimed BBC drama Sherlock are part of the Try TV on Us offer.

As well as drama, customers will be able laugh out loud to Zooey Deschanel’s hit comedy New Girl and hilarious hit US series How I Met Your Mother.

Last year there was significant take up of Try TV on Us, with the average customer taking advantage of the offer watching three TV episodes each and over a third going on to buy another TV episode on blinkbox.

blinkbox Managing Director Adrian Letts comments: “Following the success of Try TV on Us last year we wanted to bring the offer back and provide some great entertainment to counter the dark and depressing cold winter nights. Fans of great TV have never had it so good and we’re proud of our selection of amazing TV shows. Offering a taster is a great way to introduce people to our service and help customers find their next TV obsession.”

Customers can watch as many of the 28 episodes as they like during the promotional period.
