ITVX kicks off with 9,000 hours of content | VOD | New

Leading British commercial broadcaster ITV has revealed that 35 flagship shows, over 250 films and over 200 series will be offered when it launches its ITVX service, which will represent a reimagining of its current ITV Hub on-demand platform.
In total, the streaming service will offer viewers a choice of over 9,000 hours of new series, documentaries, cult classics and movies. ITVX will premiere a collection of new dramas at launch, which will only be available on the streamer for at least six months before debuting on ITV channels, including the anticipated Cold War drama A Spy Among Friends starring Damian Lewis and Guy Pearce; the new teen drama Tell Me Everything and the four-part thriller Without Sin starring Vicky McClure.

At least one flagship show will then launch on ITVX per week going forward, including Russell T Davies’ Nolly with Helena Bonham Carter; the period drama The Confessions of Frannie Langton starring Karla-Simone Spence, Sophie Cookson and Patrick Martins; and Litvinenko with David Tennant and Mark Bonnar.

As well as premiering the series and streaming exclusively on ITVX, the service will also launch the full run of ITV’s upcoming flagship shows on their first day of airing. Early examples will include real-life drama Stonehouse starring Matthew Macfadyen and Keeley Hawes and new series Unforgotten. These series will add to a library of over 200 recent and classic American and British dramas, comedies and reality shows that will be available to users.

ITVX will also launch with what the company calls the UK’s largest free film library and a range of documentaries, including a collection dedicated to true crime.
