On NOW TV & Roku to clear your location data:
The ITV Hub app on your Connected TV never stores your postcode. Your postcode, or partial postcode, is only used temporarily to identify your broadcast region which is used to ensure that you receive the right shows and channels for your area.
If you want to limit what your little ones can watch on ITV Hub, you have the option to set up a PIN that will be asked for whenever you play any G-rated videos
To set up parental controls, navigate to your Settings menu in the top bar of the ITV Hub app, and select Parental Controls. Switch the parental control selection bar to ON and you will be asked to enter a 4-digit PIN.
If you have forgotten your PIN and security questions, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org who will be able to assist you.
You will need to set the PIN on each device using ITV Hub.
We want you to enjoy the ITV Hub and get the best viewing experience to enjoy your favourite shows.
The ITV Hub shows are streamed to your TV over your Internet connection. Generally, the better your broadband connection, the less buffering you will experience during video playback. While the ITV Hub should work perfectly over a wifi connection, we would recommend using a wired connection for watching video.
Most Samsung Smart devices have automatic updates enabled by default. So long as your TV is on and connected, updates to the ITV Hub will automatically push to your device as they become available. We highly recommended that automatic updates are enabled to ensure that you always have the latest and greatest version of the app!
Some users have reported issues when updating apps on their TV. Sometimes it can take a few goes before the app has fully downloaded and installed, so we recommend retrying after a few hours if you are not successful first time around.
If you decide not to enable automatic updates, you can still update manually.
To manually update the ITV Hub app on 2014 and 2015 Samsung Smart devices:
To manually update the ITV Hub app on 2012-2013 Samsung Smart devices:
