ITV Hub in Spain

ITV Hub, formally ITV Player, is a service that lets you catch up with ITV television programmes from the past week.

ITV Hub is an online video on demand service.

The service offers a variety of programmes from home-grown programming to imports across ITV1, ITV2, ITV3, ITV4 and CITV.

Some sports programming is available to watch again via the service.

Some programmes, imports and movies are not currently available due to rights issues.

The service was originally called ITV Catch Up but was then rebranded as ITV Player on 5 December 2008 as part of ITV’s aim to create a recognisable and consistent brand for video-on-demand content across the web and TV. ITV Player was rebranded as ITV Hub in 2015.
