BBC Shop to closeBookmark and Share

Tuesday, 8 March 2016 - Reported by Marcus
BBC Worldwide is to close the online BBC Shop, which sells Books, DVDs, BluRays and games related to BBC output.

Instead the company will concentrate on BBC Store, which launched last year and offers digital copies of BBC programs.

BBC Worldwide explained its thinking
The DVD market has been in decline for a number of years as consumers move to digital viewing. The market no longer supports the commercial release of many of the titles we’re able to make available on BBC Store. BBC Worldwide returns profits to the BBC’s Public Service to reinvest in programming.
The shop closes on 30th March. A number of bargains, including items of Doctor Who mechendise, can be obtained while stocks last.
