ITV have updated the Android version of the ITV Player app and quietly opened up access to more devices. Back in May ITV agreed a deal with Samsung making the app exclusive to Samsung Android devices and while the release notes still say its Samsung only I installed it on my Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 today. In May Samsung said they had exclusivity until the end of August so maybe we are seeing the lifting of restrictions a few days early. With the app you can watch catchup TV from ITV, ITV2, ITV3, ITV4 and CITV over 3G/4G or WiFi.
The app is free from the Google Play Store.
Version 2.1.1 fixes a critical defect and for those of you still on version 2.0, this release provides a landscape navigation for all devices – mobile or tablet. Please update your version of ITV Player.
As we aim to continually improve the application, your feedback is much appreciated. Please get in touch with us via customer support – [email protected] – and let us know anything that you might be having a problem with or if you want to give us some feedback.
