Where else can I watch ITVX
You can already take a look what series ITVX have by going to itv.com on any web browser.
How much is ITVX and is ITVX free
Similar to Netflix, the streaming service will offer different tiers – although one key difference is that ITVX will offer a free option.
ITVX offer a ‘ad-supported’ tier which is completely free of charge and will allow you to watch all the service has to offer for free, with adverts. However, if you want an experience more similar to a standard Netflix subscription (without adverts), then you can subscribe to the premium service for £5.99 a month, or £59.99 annually. This option will also give you excess to additional shows and boxsets from BritBox.
What channel is ITVx on freeview
It is not on a specific channel, but is available on your TV in the same way ITV Hub was available to freeview viewers. Freeview Play devices should see their ITV Hub app “transform” into ITVX, without needing to manually download a new app.
However, older TV models – for example any Samsung Start TV dating from 2016 backwards – will not be able to access ITVX. The same applies to YouView boxes and the new BT TV Pro 4K box.
