BritBox January Premieres: What's New on BritBox in January 2021? 1

Welcome to 2021! If you're reading this, you made it through 2021, and that's certainly something to celebrate – perhaps by taking a look at what BritBox has on offer this January. While the number of new releases for January pales in comparison to the 70+ period drama extravaganza of December, there are definitely some good ones – particularly Series 2 of The Bay.

If you have a Roku Smart TV, Roku device, Amazon Fire device, or Chrome, you should have no trouble signing up for a direct subscription on their website.

Traces

Traces, Series 1

New chemistry graduate Emma Hodges begins work at The Scottish Institute of Forensic Science and Anatomy, but when she joins an online course to build professional skills, she notices the case is eerily familiar. It's the case of how her mother's body was found eighteen years earlier.

Along with her new bosses and a committed detective, Emma begins following up the clues – leading her right into the middle of a live investigation. Stars include Molly Windsor (Three Girls), Laura Fraser (Breaking Bad), Martin Compston (Line of Duty), and Jennifer Spence (The Bletchley Circle: San Francisco).

  1. We just watched the first 4 episodes of Traces Season 1, each of which was accompanied by the statement “Season 1 included with your BritBox Subscription”, which is through Amazon Prime. BUT It seems that in order to see the last two episodes of Traces season 1, we have to pay $2.99 each. This is a classic shakedown, hook us by leading us on and then try to squeeze us for more $$$ as the finale is near. Not playing that game, BritBox!!!”

  2. Why do we have to pay extra for the remaining traces episodes and the bay. We have britbox and acorn through Amazon

    • I encountered this conundrum when I was subscribing to Britbox through Prime. It’s Amazon that’s messing with you, not Britbox. I canceled my subscription through Prime and went back to subscribing directly to Britbox. Yes, I know it’s one more hassle, but you won’t need to pay for any episodes that way. If you have any number of streaming tools – in my case, Chromecast, you can watch directly from Britbox and only pay your subscription.

  3. In your headline of the article you mentioned season 10 of Death In Paradise but nowhere in any of the following paragraphs or sites did you mention when season 10 would be premiering. So, please let us know when Season 10 will be coming to BritBox? Thanks!

  4. I have BritBox and watched the first two episodes of Series 2 of The Bay. To watch any more of Series 2 past the first two episodes, there is another fee. How many more episodes of Series 2 of The Bay are available. And, why is there another fee if more episodes are available?

  5. I subscribed to Brit box through Amazon Prime and now I am going to have to pay $20 to watch Season 2 of Love in Chains. Can anyone explain to me WHY?

    • britbox is crap. Acorn is a little bit better, but its very slow in adding new shows, so join and watch your fill, then delete.

      • Please add all seasons of the Bill! I want to watch the entire series! 🇨🇦
        As well, AcornTV states that Just William starts today 01Feb21 but it is not showing in 🇨🇦??

  6. Am still slowly making my way through the massive period dramas added in December. Having seen a great many over the years but not so recently, I’m going by author: Catherine Cookson first, etc.

    The Bay, I’ve yet to watch series 1. So will get startef.

    i like Molly Windsor very much, talented young actress, a Rising Star? Saw here in Cheat on SundanceNow. Superb. Looking forward to Traces.

    And the cast of Unforgiven sounds superb.
