UK RETAIL GIANT Tesco has launched a free TV and film streaming service for its Clubcard holders.

The service named Clubcard TV is available now in beta status, and The Drum reports that it is being trialed amongst Tesco staffers before being rolled out to the public. Clubcard TV will be powered by streaming outfit Blinkbox, Tesco has revealed, in which the retail giant owns an 80 percent stake.

Tesco explained, "Clubcard TV is a free online movie and TV service from Tesco that is exclusively for the use of Clubcard customers.

"We have thousands of movies and TV shows for you to choose from - all you need to enjoy them is a Clubcard, a computer and a broadband connection. With no schedules, no fees and no fuss, Clubcard TV offers you access to a world of drama, action, kids' TV, comedy, documentary - and our catalogue of movies and programmes is constantly evolving, providing you with quality family entertainment."

Tesco has yet to reveal the line-up for its new TV and film streaming service, but we're likely to see classic films such as Black Beauty, War Horse and Only Fools and Horses.

There are still plenty of unanswered questions about the service, and we've asked Tesco for further information. µ
