Unlike BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub isn’t available on Sky Q. The catch-up service has been missing from the set-top box since it launched in 2016, with customers instead receiving access to a curated selection of shows available on ITV Hub through Sky’s own on-demand service, and because of a change the broadcaster made in May to encourage people to use its ITV Hub instead of other services, this number of ITV shows available on Sky Q is fast declining.
As of now, Sky Q customers have no choice but to watch ITV Hub on another device, like an Amazon Fire TV Stick or an iPad. Fortunately, ITV has confirmed that ITV Hub will launch on Sky Q in November 2022, in the form of its new ITV streaming service. This will replace ITV Hub in the broadcaster’s line-up as a revised streaming service, that’ll have more than three-times the amount of content as it tries to rival the likes of Prime Video and Netflix.
Interestingly, ITV Hub is available on Sky Glass, so owners of Sky’s all-in-one television solution need not worry. This too should see ITV Hub replaced with ITVX when the service launches ahead of the FIFA World Cup. The service will be free to use across all devices, though customers will be able to hand over some cash to remove adverts. It is will offer access to new shows often months before their broadcast on terrestrial television.
