Benedict Cumberbatch fans will have to look to streaming service Stan for their fix of Sherlock for every upcoming episode.

The movies and TV show offerings of the streaming services is always a moving feast as deals come and go, which makes comparison an interesting business. One way that these services can stand out is to secure exclusive content not open to their competitors. Netflix is well known for this funding its own "Originals" programming, but competitors Presto and Stan have also funded limited series themselves, as well as securing exclusives on content produced for other networks.

That’s long been the case for the BBC’s very popular Sherlock, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman. Stan has announced it’s secured a deal with BBC Worldwide Australia & New Zealand for the upcoming fourth season of Sherlock, as well as "any future seasons and specials" that will be developed.

Stan hasn’t specified exactly when series 4 will go to air, but it states that it will air it at the same time as the worldwide premiere.

Over the weekend at San Diego Comic-con BBC Worldwide premiered the first trailer for the fourth season, which you can watch below. It’s worth noting that if for some reason you haven’t yet watched the last special episode, The Abominable Bride, that the trailer contains some spoiler-type content within.
