The White Queen

The subscription VoD platform has acquired the series from distributor Starz Digital Media, following its launch on premium cable channel Starz in 2014.

It originally aired on BBC One in the UK.

The White Queen is based on the historical novels by Philippa Gregory’s series The Cousins War, set during the War of the Roses, and tells the story of three women vying for England’s throne during one of the most turbulent times in the country’s history.

The ten-part series stars Rebecca Ferguson and Janet McTeer, Max Irons and James Frain.

Subscribers to Starz will still also be able to view The White Queen on all related platforms.
