The BBC is planning to launch a subscription-based video streaming service in the United States.
BBC director general Tony Hall said he wanted to “try out businesses that go direct to the public” to boost the income of BBC Worldwide.
The new service, which could launch in 2016, will not affect agreements with other services such as Amazon and Hulu.
One expert told BBC News the service would probably appeal to a “niche” audience.
Best of British
Lord Hall said the new service would showcase the “best of British” television to audiences in the US.
