ITV Box Office to launch in 2017
ITV will launch its new pay-per-view service ITV Box Office in 2017 with the IBO World Super Middleweight Title bout between Chris Eubank Jnr, Britain’s number one middleweight, and Renold Quinlan, holder of the IBO World Super Middleweight Title.
Tests for ITV Box Office have been spotted on satellite over the course of the past few weeks, which mean Sky viewers will be able to opt-in to the match, which is expected to take place in “early 2017”, possibly February 2017, according to several sources.
Further details about how to watch the bout, how it might be available to non-Sky viewers and how much it will cost are to be revealed “well in advance” of the event, according to ITV bosses. ITV Box Office joins a growing number of ITV services available behind a paywall, including ITV Encore and HD versions of ITV’s offshoot channels.
