What is ITVX?

ITVX is ITV’s new streaming platform. It replaces ITV Hub as the home for ITV content and channels.

There are two tiers: a free ad-supported tier that promises over 10,000 hours of programming in HD, plus a ‘Premium’ tier that removes the ads and bundles ITVX with Britbox.

In addition to the usual ITV fare, ITVX promises to launch a new original series every week, starting with six-part cold war drama A spy among friends with Damian Lewis and Guy Pearce.

ITVX will also offer “pop-up” themed channels including Hell’s Kitchen US, True Crime, The Oxford Detectives, Love Island International, 90s Favorites and The Chase.

ITVX release date

The official release date of ITVX is December 8, 2022that’s when the service will launch all features and content, including new and “streaming exclusive” titles.

However, if you’ve been watching the World Cup in Qatar, you’ll know that ITV has already started rolling out ITVX. This is “to ensure viewers have full access to all content” on launch day.

Is ITVX free?

Yes and no.

ITVX free – the ad-supported tier – is free for UK viewers with a valid TV license. Simply sign up with an email address and a UK postcode. The free version offers access to all new and original content, which is a nice touch.

ITVX premium – the ad-free tier – costs £5.99 per month or £5.99 per year (new users get a 7-day free trial). Premium also includes access to Britbox, ITV’s global streaming service, and the ability to download content for offline viewing.
