ITV’s new streaming service ITVX launches on 8 December

British broadcaster ITV’s new streaming service ITVX will launch on December 8, the broadcaster confirmed on Monday.

The free-to-air streamer, which replaces the former catch-up service ITV Hub, will debut with more than 10,000 hours of free programming, in addition to premium originals such as “A Spy Among Friends” and “The Confessions of Frannie Langton.”

The service will roll out across devices and platforms in the coming weeks, although all originals will not launch until December 8. The platform will feature historical and current ITV dramas, as well
documentaries and films. It will also include all of ITV’s channels, as well as several themed channels (known as FAST channels), and a dedicated news section.

ITV CEO Carolyn McCall said the service is powered by “a significant, streaming-first commissioning budget, and an integrated technology and data platform that delivers a high-quality and more personalized viewing and advertising experience, which will continue to evolve in 2023 and beyond.” “

The dramas available on launch day include the six-part Cold War drama A Spy Among Friends starring Damian Lewis and Guy Pearce (pictured); provocative new teen drama “Tell Me Everything”; period drama “The Confessions of Frannie Langton” starring Karla-Simone Spence, Sophie Cookson and Patrick Martins; and “Plebs: Soldiers of Rome,” the long special finale of the popular comedy series.

After launch day, at least one flagship will launch on ITVX per week. “Litvinenko”, starring David Tennant and Mark Bonnar, will be released on December 15, while the family drama “Riches”, starring Deborah Ayorinde and Hugh Quarshie, will be released on December 22, along with the well-known natural history documentary “A Year on Planet Earth . ”
