In a multi-year subscription video-on-demand agreement, Stan has announced BBC Worldwide as a launch content partner for its new streaming platform.

The deal brings Australians a huge selection of the best BBC Worldwide programs on Stan’s video streaming service.

Beginning from Stan’s launch, premium BBC Worldwide series including Sherlock, Ripper Street, Orphan Black, Top Gear and Doctor Who will be available for Stan’s members to watch instantly, all included in Stan’s low monthly price.

Iconic British comedies including The Office, Gavin and Stacey, The Vicar of Dibley, Extras, Absolutely Fabulous and Fawlty Towers will join acclaimed dramas Luther, Wallander, Parade’s End and Torchwood on Stan.

The complete offering has something for everyone, with children’s favourite Charlie and Lola joining factual documentaries from David Attenborough and Louis Theroux.

“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,” said Nick Forward, Stan’s director of content and product.

“We’re proud to include such a broad selection of premium content for our members.”

Stan will offer the complete collection of Sherlock, starring Emmy Award-winning actor Benedict Cumberbatch. It joins Ripper Street, the riveting crime series centred on the infamous Jack the Ripper murders.

Back-to-back episodes and complete seasons will be available for Stan’s members to watch where and when they want.

In announcing the deal, Jon Penn, managing director of BBC Worldwide ANZ, said: “We’re 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.”

Titles will be available to watch instantly in full HD on multiple platforms including television, tablets, computers and mobile phones.
