How to get ITVX on your TV or smartphone

It’s safe to say there’s a lot happening on ITV this January…

Expect one-off programmes such as Prince Harry’s newly-aired chat with Tom Bradby, as well as six-part drama Maternal and game show Loaded In Paradise.

Plenty of long-running fan favourites such as The Masked Singer (just who is Phoenix, though?), Dancing On Ice, and Winter Love Island 2023 will air this month, too.

You’d need to be glued to the box to keep up with such a bustling schedule… so it’s fortunate that ITV has a streaming platform, ITVX, where you can watch these shows on catch up.

But if you’re used to the old ITV Hub, just how do you get ITVX? Can you get it on your phone, too?

Here’s how to get it downloaded.

How to get ITVX on your TV

Which devices is ITVX compatible with?

According to the ITV website, ITVX should be supported by the following smart TVs and streaming devices:

  • Amazon Fire TV
  • Apple TV (tvOS 12.2 or later)
  • Chromecast
  • Freesat and Freeview Play (some models)
  • LG Smart TVs (2016 or newer)
  • NOW Smart Sticks and Boxes (minimum firmware v11.0.2)
  • Roku Streaming Players (minimum firmware v11.0.2)
  • Samsung Smart TVs (2016 or newer)
  • Sky Glass and Sky Stream
  • Virgin Media

Keep in mind that ITVX has replaced former catch-up service ITV Hub.

You might find that if you still have an ITV Hub app on the above Smart TVs and streaming sticks, that if you update the app, it will then be automatically changed to ITVX.

The channel’s support website also adds: ‘We’re currently upgrading the ITV Hub app to our brand new ITVX experience across smart TVs, mobile apps and browsers.’

It’s currently available for XBox One, Series S and Series X consoles, too.

How to get ITVX on your smartphone or device

If your phone or device uses Android (5.0 or up) or iOS (12.2 or later), then you should be able to get ITVX as an app.

Head to the Google Play store or App Store respectively to download for free.

For Android users, ITV notes that ‘Nexus 7, Lenovo M10, Hudl tablets and Kindle 3rd generation and older are not supported’.

ITVX is supported on laptops and computers running on Windows 8 or above, as well as Mac 10.12 Sierra or above – and works on browsers including Firefox, Google Chrome and Safari.

Lastly, ITVX is free to download and watch, but if you want an ad-free Premium account (as well as access to more shows), you can get a seven-day free trial and then pay £5.99 per month or £59.99 per year.
