When ITVX officially launches on 8 December, Deaf viewers will have access to what is a worldwide streaming first – a British Sign Language channel, solely featuring signed programming, which will include a range of shows like the Emmerdale and Coronation Street omnibus episodes, Cilla, Alan Carr’s Epic Gameshow, Vera, Lewis, and The Saint. The channel will be regularly updated and will evolve to include both recent and archive programming from a wide variety of genres. 

ITVX will launch with a selection of 20 themed channels, which are designed to offer a lean-back experience of watching a scheduled channel, and these channels will appear in the ‘live’ section of the service, directly below ITV’s six existing channels (ITV1, ITV2, ITV3, ITV4, ITVBe and CITV).
