News reaches us that Coronation Street is being made available in the USA the day after it airs in the UK.
But you have to pay for it.
American Corrie fans can already watch Coronation Street on Hulu. Now, subscription service BritBox is making new Corrie episodes from the UK available within 24 hours .
BritBox costs $6.99 per month after an introductory free trial period.
Soumya Sriraman, president of BritBox, said: "Coronation Street
has been the most requested show for our service, and we know that
subscribers and fans will jump for joy now that BritBox not only has the
series, but will be running them stateside hours after viewers get to
see them in the U.K.”
Any American fans reading this thinking of signing up to pay for Corrie?
Would YOU pay to watch Coronation Street?
