Freesat ITV Player out of beta

Service goes official on Humax boxes

Freesat has added ITV Player to its selection of catch-up viewing services.

Freesat set-top boxes with an Ethernet port that's hooked up to a user's broadband connection can access ITV Player on Channel 903. From there, users can view previously broadcast shows from ITV, ITV 2, ITV 3 and ITV 4.

Well, we say 'Freesat set-top boxes', but in fact the service is limited to Humax-branded machines. Freesat promised more boxes and Freesat-capable TVs will gain ITV Player support "over the coming months".

ITV Player is being automatically added to boxes' EPGs.

Freesat's catch-up line-up currently includes BBC iPlayer. ®
