What is ITV Hub, and how can I watch it?

The ITV Hub is a free streaming video-on-demand service for all the UK’s ITV channels and programming.

Previously known as the ITV Player (and before that, ITV Catch Up), it’s the main application of the ITV website. It provides viewers with access to 6 live streams and masses of catch-up TV. The live streaming channels it supports are ITV, ITV2, ITVBe, ITV3, ITV4 and CITV.

There’s also an option to sign up for ITV Hub+. It’s pretty much the same thing but without all the ads. So, if you like your TV uninterrupted, maybe it’s worth the subscription fee.

Programs are available for just 30 days after their initial showing. So, if you want don’t want to miss an episode of Coronation Street, Emmerdale or The Chase, then you need to be quick.

As well as some of the biggest soaps on UK TV, you’ll also find comedy from Kate & Koji, Family Guy and Celebrity Juice. Then there are your children’s favourites Ben 10, Sooty and Antiks, plus a selection of documentary-style viewing, lifestyle and reality TV, news, films and sport.

Can you watch Love Island live on ITV Hub? Is there a Family Guy live stream? How about if you want to watch a Celebrity Juice catchup? It's all there on ITV Hub.

How can I watch ITV Hub with StreamLocator?

It’s simple. StreamLocator uses some clever tech to make the ITV Hub software think you’re in the UK. Our ingenious router switches your location so that ITV Hub sees a UK address instead. That’s all it needs to allow its servers to start streaming content.

With StreamLocator, you’re connected before you even have a chance to think about how. The connection is automatic and seamless. Now, what are you going to watch?

No complicated settings or software installation required

Unlike other systems, there isn’t any software to install on the computers or devices you use. Neither will you have to mess with DNS profiles or server settings. You only have to set up our router once, and from then on, it’s always ready for action—and it works with every one of your devices.

Your Android and iPhone mobiles will operate seamlessly, as will your Mac or PC. Games consoles (this is how to watch ITV, live on Xbox, PS4 and more) will all connect without a hitch, and your Smart TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast and Apple TV will all be beautifully managed by our clever tech too.

When you sign up for your subscription, we’ll send your router. Plug it into any of the open ports on your WiFi router, and there are just a few simple steps to follow before your system is up and running and ready for action. It won’t affect any of your usual Internet activity, your online or offline computer use, and it won’t have any impact on your Internet speeds.

The router is accessible from anywhere in your home and by everyone. You can log onto as many different services in as many countries as you like. StreamLocator will manage them all at the same time.

How to watch ITV Hub from outside the UK

ITV Hub operates on geolocation technology, to find out which users are connecting within the UK and which aren’t. When it spots those outside the country, it displays an error or a polite message letting them know why they aren’t able to access its programs.

VPN and DNS are the 2 most popular ways of getting around the problem. However, as technology improves, it’s becoming more common that these technologies are being filtered out and rejected too.

This is where StreamLocator excels.

Because it uses a combination of both systems, and a few other clever processes and tools to boot, it knows which is the best way to reach each system and provide precisely the information it needs.

It’s so good; it’s as though you were sat in the UK all along.

How to register for ITV Hub from outside the UK

You need to register a free account with ITV to access the content provided. The process will mean having a valid email address and adding a UK postcode during your application. There are plenty of random postcode generators for the UK—or why not drop in a pin in Google Maps for one?

Do you need a VPN or DNS to watch ITV from outside the UK?

DNS switching, Smart DNS or VPN software all provide ways to access ITV Hub from outside the UK. They are the best-known solutions for working around the geolocation blockers that withhold access to geographically sensitive media.

They are all useful tools with their own advantages, disadvantages and applications.

Take VPN for example. It’s a superb tool for adding an extra layer of security when accessing public WiFi or shared networks. Smart DNS is another method of providing security but operates in a slightly different way to VPN.

However, when it comes to accessing geo-blocked content, StreamLocator is a step ahead of both.

It communicates automatically with servers to provide whichever is the optimum method, providing you with access without having to worry about a thing. The only thing you have to do is choose the StreamLocator WiFi network from your dropdown list.

How to unblock ITV Hub

There’s nothing complicated to unblocking ITV Hub wherever you are. Plug in the StreamLocator router, switch your WiFi network, and that’s it. You can dive straight into the ITV Player Love Island live stream, or catch DCI Banks on ITV Hub.

Boot up your Mac or PC, switch on your smartphone or Smart TV, and all the hard work is already sorted via your router.

Does StreamLocator allow me to watch ITV Hub for free?

Of course. ITV Hub is a free service, paid for by the advertising opportunities it supplies to its partners. Tune in and start watching. It won’t cost you a penny.
