ITV2, ITV3, ITV4, ITVBe and CITV are no longer part of the Basic access service.
Bringing together the best range of live TV channels to be watched and enjoyed on a variety of connected devices has been our mission at TVPlayer since we launched in 2013.
Unfortunately, the cost of operating our Basic access service has continued to grow and is now at a level that we can no longer afford to offer so many channels outside of our subscription packages. As a result, over the coming days and weeks, we will be limiting access to a range of channels currently included in Basic access to our Premium and Premium+ subscription packs.
You can try Premium or Premium+ FREE for a month by signing up here.
These changes will not impact new and existing Plus Lite, Plus Max, Premium and Premium+ subscribers.

How can I continue to access these channels on TVPlayer?
Easy! Simply take a one month FREE trial of either Premium or Premium+ at tvplayer.com. Upgrading gives you access to up to 80 channels, including 30 not available on Freeview. If you’re not happy with the subscription for any reason you can cancel anytime.
Why does it cost TVPlayer money to provide free-to-air and Freeview channels?
Even free-to-air channels cost TVPlayer money to distribute. In addition to building and maintaining our apps and technology, we also have to pay the channels for their content. Unfortunately, we are not able to off-set enough of these costs through advertising.
Does this mean you are charging for free-to-air and Freeview channels?
No. Like other popular TV subscription services, we have always provided TVPlayer subscribers with access to free-to-air and Freeview channels as part of their service in order to deliver an all in one and easy to use destination for all their TV viewing.
