The British broadcaster BBC plans to launch a Netflix-style streaming service offering programming past and present.

The service will give BBC fans a way to watch programs they "wouldn’t otherwise get," BBC Director General Tony Hall said on Thursday, 17 Sep, 2015. At an industry convention.

Although the new streaming service will not include the popular BBC series of "Doctor Who" and "Sherlock" but there’s plenty more to watch.

The streaming service is part of the BBC's search for new revenue sources as the British government conducts a review of the legendary network's current funding and business practices.

This subscription based video streaming service is actually going to make it easy to distribute television programmes through the open Internet without a traditional cable or satellite provider controlling the content.

The specific launch date is still unknown.
