Why am I still seeing adverts on Family Guy and American Dad?

Due to rights restrictions, unfortunately these programmes will still contain ads.

I've bought my ITV Hub+ subscription, but I'm still seeing ads

Once you've subscribed to ITV Hub+, you can start using your subscription immediately on the device you used to subscribe. However, on occasion it can take up to 24 hours for the subscription to be automatically recognised by other devices.

If you want to use your subscription on another device, simply logging out of your account on that device and logging back in should fix the problem straight away.

If you've been successfully using Hub+ but temporarily see ads, or see a "Whoops!" error message on your profile page, this means that we may be experiencing a delay in taking your recurring payment. Please bear with us on this, but if the delay is longer than a couple of hours, do get in touch with our Viewer Support team.

Can I download shows using Hub+?

Yes! You can download shows onto an iPhone or iPad.

Simply tap the "Download" icon beneath the episode you'd like to download - make sure you're connected to wifi and your download will begin straight away. You can queue up and store as many shows as you like.

Anything that you download is there for you to enjoy for up to 7 days, unless it's due to expire from the ITV Hub before then. You can access all of your downloads by going to "My ITV" within the app and then tapping Downloads.

Can I use my Hub+ benefits abroad?

Thanks to new regulations in place from April 1st 2018, Hub+ subscribers are now able to enjoy their Hub+ benefits when they go abroad within the EU.

Please note that it is only paid-for Hub+ services that are made available abroad, and that live channel streaming will not be available to Hub+ subscribers outside of the UK.

For more information on which countries and territories are placed within the EU, please go here.

If you are travelling abroad on holiday but outside of the EU, and have an iPhone or iPad running iOS 10 or above, you can download most programmes to watch anywhere offline. Just make sure you download the programme whilst you're still in the UK, and your download will be available to watch anywhere for up to 7 days.

How do I verify my email address?

If you haven't yet verified your email address, you will be asked to when you try ad play a video. Click "Resend email" within the pop-ip and a verification email will be sent to the email address you used to sign up with.

Once you receive the verification email, make sure you click the link within the body of the email to finish the verification process. You may also want to triple-check in case the email has dropped into your spam or junk folder, if it doesn't come through to you immediately.

Why do I need to verify my email address?

When you sign up for ITV Hub+ via our website, we need to verify that we have your right email address so you can watch ad free. We'll also send your monthly invoice via email.

To finish the process, and make sure you're receiving all of the benefits of ITV Hub+, just click on the link in the verification email. If you don't verify your account, when you go to play a video you will be prompted to do so and will be sent another verification email.

Where is my verification email?

If you can't find your verification email, here are some tips to help you find it:
1. Search for it in your inbox. The email will have come from "ITV Hub+"
2. Try checking your spam or junk folders. Sometimes our emails end up in there!
3. It may sound silly, but make sure you're checking the right email account.
4. Resend the verification email by signing into your ITV account and clicking play on a video.

If you still haven't received a verification email, please get in touch with our lovely Viewer Support team at, or @itvhub on Twitter.

Am I paying Apple or ITV for my subscription?

Can I purchase Hub+ with a non-UK card?

Unfortunately, we are now no longer able to accept non-UK-based cards for Hub+ payments if you're subscribed via the website.

If you are an affected viewer who's currently subscribed, we'll send you an email about this soon, or you can take action now by going to the Manage Account area of the website.

I signed up for a free trial but have been charged. Why is this?

Once your free first week is up, if you didn't cancel within those seven days, your subscription will automatically start and you will be charged £3.99 for the following month.

Can I get a refund for my subscription?

If you feel you have a valid reason as to why we should refund your subscription, please contact our viewer support team in the first instance explaining the reason. We will then be able to process the refund and cancel your subscription.

If you decide to cancel part way through a month, partial refunds are not available, but you will still get the benefits of ITV Hub+ until the date your subscription expires. Once your subscription has expired, you will see the regular adverts again.

Please allow 5-10 days for the refund to be fully processed and appear in your bank.


How do I download a show?

Make sure you're logged into the account you subscribed to ITV Hub+ with, and select the show you'd like to download. Tap the "Download" icon beneath the episode and your download will begin immediately. Just make sure you're connected to wifi!

How many downloads can be done at once?

You'll be able to download up to three shows simultaneously. If you wish to download more, these will queue until they are complete.

How many downloads can I store?

You can have as many downloads as your device can store. If you run out of storage, a error message will pop up, which means you'll have to free up some space on your device in order to continue downloading.

How long can I keep my downloads?

You will see everything you've downloaded in the Downloads section of the app until you delete them yourself. However, everything you download is only available to watch for up to 7 days. After those 7 days you will need to download the video again to watch it.

If you download a show part way through your free trial, and then cancel your trial, your download will only be available until the 7 day trial period has finished.

At present, you cannot download a video which has less than 7 days remaining until its expiry date. You will not be able to watch your download if it has gone beyond the Hub expiry date.

What is the Hub expiry date?

The ITV Hub has the rights to show programmes for a specific time period, This is usually 30 days, but can be less or more depending on the content. Please check the number of days an episode has left on the Hub, which can be found on the episode's page underneath the video.

We're working to improve this feature in future releases of the app to ensure it is as functional as possible. Keep an eye out for app updates!

Where do I find my downloads?

You can access your downloads by going to the "My ITV" section of the app, or by tapping the settings menu in the top right of your screen - there you will see a downloads section in which all of the programmes you've downloaded so far will be stored.

Why can't I download a show?

A wide range of our top telly is available for you to download, but unfortunately we are not able to make every show available to download.

There are a couple of reasons why you may not be able to download a particular show:

  • It may only be available for 7 days or less
  • Due to licensing agreements, some US shows are not available for download (eg. Family Guy)

Why has my download failed?

There are a few reasons why your download may have failed. It could be due to:

  • Poor wifi connection. You can only download shows when you're connected to wifi - if the wifi connection is poor, or you lose wifi completely and try to download over 3G/4G, your download will fail.
  • Lack of storage on your device. Your device may not have enough room to store the download, in which case you will need to free up some space on your device.
  • Your device may be too slow to handle the download process.

Can I download on desktop?

The download feature is currently only available on iPhones and iPads (iOS 10 and above).
