Smart TV

I've got a Sony smart TV and it works no problems but I can't for some reason find ITV Player. Googling appears to say it's only available through set top boxes or Samsung TVs.
Anyone know for sure?

Why can't I get ITV player on my Sony or Panasonic Smart TVs? Why only
Samsung?

Re: Smart TV

Thanks for that - I can survive without it but I wonder why when you can get the other channels - down to finances I expect.

Re: Smart TV

It's the same in Scotland. ITV Player is not available on Freesat. They say it's the responsibility of STV who say they have no intention of producing anything. All down to which postcode you put in when setting the box up apparently.

Re: Smart TV

As I said I can live without it, I can always watch if need be on the PC but I just find it a bit bizarre tbh.

Re: Smart TV

Your not the only one that finds it bizzarre, especially, when it is on some freeview boxes / the cheap £9.99 Now TV unit & other platforms, even though they know there is a demand for the iPlayers

That's how freesat boxes are regionalised.

Re: Smart TV

My Panasonic plasma initially displayed something like 'ITV Player coming soon' when we bought it almost 4 years ago. Now it says 'Sorry, ITV Player is currently not available on this device'.
