ITV launch the ITV Player

December 8, 2008

In order to cash in on the recent success of the BBC catch up service and the introduction of Sky’s on demand service, ITV are renaming their catch up service as ITV Player, in an attempt to provide an online service for their viewers no matter how they choose to watch TV.

At the moment the ITV catch up service, which was launched in March of this year, is called “Catch Up TV” and allows broadband users who access the ITV website to watch many of the popular ITV programmes.

However this new service, which will be getting a big promotion started off on the 19th December, is going to be more like the services provided by the BBC and now Sky, with a new logo and recognisable branding that cashes in on the success of the BBC iPlayer.
