BBC's Doctor Who will stream exclusively on HBO Max when the service launches in Spring 2020, according to Variety. The agreement includes all 11 seasons of the modern Doctor Who.
Episodes will continue to debut on BBC and BBC America, but they'll reportedly only be available by streaming on the upcoming Warner Bros. streaming service.
“Doctor Who is one of television’s all-time, most beloved series, on both sides of the pond, and we are happy to be the exclusive streaming stewards for this BBC gem,” said Kevin Reilly, chief content officer at HBO Max and president of TNT, TBS, and truTV in a statement. “Another series to further define the high-quality content experience consumers can expect from HBO Max.”
“As any Doctor Who fan knows, the iconic TARDIS is ‘bigger on the inside’ – and it’s a good thing because the TARDIS is about to welcome a whole new slew of fans coming to the show through this deal with HBO Max,” added Nigel Gaines, interim president of BBC Studios – Americas. “HBO Max’s ambitious content line-up is the perfect complement to the Doctor Who global franchise, in addition to some of our most award-winning and game-changing UK dramas and comedies.”
