Watching ITV on PS4 Outside the UK: Your Complete Guide


ITVX has launched on PlayStation consoles, granting me the opportunity to indulge in its offerings on PS4 consoles beyond the borders of the UK, completely free of charge.

Setting it up was really easy; I simply navigated to the PlayStation store, downloaded the app onto my console, logged into my account, and started streaming.

However, it’s worth noting that you’ll need to connect to ExpressVPN while accessing the platform from a geo-restricted region where ITVX is not available.

ITV boasts a wide array of content, ranging from blockbuster movies to captivating TV series and gripping sports events like The Grand National and Love Island.

Now, viewers can effortlessly enjoy ITV on their PS4 consoles from anywhere in the world with the assistance of a VPN.

If you’re eager to enhance your PS4 entertainment journey, keep an eye out for my forthcoming comprehensive guide on accessing ITV on PS4.

Even without the official ITV Hub app, you have options:

Method 1: Using a Web Browser

  1. Turn on your PlayStation 4 console and log in to your profile.
  2. Navigate to the PlayStation main menu and scroll down to the “Library” section. Select “Web Browser” from the library options.
  3. In the web browser address bar, type in the following URL:
  4. The ITVX website should load on your PS4 screen. You can browse the content library, search for specific shows, and start watching! Note: Functionality might be slightly limited compared to the app.

Method 2: Screen Mirroring ITVX App (Requires Compatible Device)

This method requires a smartphone or tablet that has the ITVX app installed and supports screen mirroring features. Consult your device’s user manual or manufacturer’s website for specific instructions on enabling screen mirroring.

  1. On your PS4, navigate to “Settings” > “System” > “Screen Mirroring” and enable the option.
  2. Open your phone/tablet settings and locate the screen mirroring option (varies by device). Find your PS4 listed as an available device and select it to connect.
  3. Once the connection is established, open the ITVX app on your phone/tablet and log in to your account (or create a free one if you haven’t already).
  4. Choose the program you want to watch on the ITVX app, and the content should be mirrored and displayed on your PS4 screen.

Here’s the Latest Update on the PlayStation ITVX App!

Tthe ITV Player PS4 app is now up and running. If you’re wondering how to access ITV on your PS4, it’s worth noting that the app isn’t readily found on the PlayStation Store.

After scouring through the revamped PlayStation Store interface, I eventually stumbled upon the ITV Player PlayStation app.

Regrettably, the ITV Hub app isn’t compatible with older PlayStation consoles. However, there’s a viable alternative worth considering.

I opted for the ITV Prime Video channel, offering a range of ITV’s streaming content and live TV. Yet, it necessitates an Amazon Prime subscription, with an additional £3.99 monthly fee post a 7-day trial.

Considering the £8.99 monthly Prime subscription, you’d end up shelling out £12.98 each month for services that are free on other platforms. Thus, I suggest leveraging the ITV Player on PS4 or PS5 instead of older PlayStation models.

Alternatively, investing in a smart TV dongle like the Amazon Fire Stick proves to be a feasible option. These cost-effective gadgets can upgrade any standard TV into a smart one, granting access to free ITV Hub content.

While rumors circulate about the ITV Hub’s potential availability on older Sony gaming consoles in the future, there’s currently no update on the progress of this endeavor.

To utilize the latest ITVX app on PS4 outside the UK, simply connect to a VPN and start enjoying it today!
