ITVX launching world-first British Sign Language channel

OHMYGOSSIP — ITVX is to launch a worldwide streaming-first British Sign Language channel.
Omnibus episodes of soaps ‘Emmerdale’ and ‘Coronation Street’, and episodes of ‘Cilla’, ‘Alan Carr’s Epic Gameshow’, ‘Vera’, ‘Lewis’, and ‘The Saint’, will feature on the channel, which will solely feature signed programming.
ITV’s Director of Accessibility, David Padmore, said: “We’re committed to placing great accessibility at the heart of ITVX and our offering at launch represents significant progress on ITV Hub.
“Our ITV Signed Channel gives us a fantastic platform for showcasing our rich archive of signed programmes.”
Viewers will have access to the channel when ITVX officially launches on December 8th.
Teri Devine, Associate Director for Inclusion at RNID, said: “Following the recognition of the British Sign Language (BSL) Act earlier this year, it is fantastic to see more and more industries and organisations become accessible to BSL users.
“We’re thrilled that ITV have considered the accessibility of BSL users for the launch of their new channel feature, making it easier for them to find new signed content.
“Building in accessibility from the start is important and should be the norm, and we look forward to seeing ITV expanding its access services across the remaining platforms. For support or information, visit”
ITVX is to launch with a selection of 20 themed channels, which are designed to offer a lean-back experience of watching a scheduled channel.
Subtitles will also be available on all 20 themed channels on all platforms except Freeview, YouView, Freesat and Chromecast, at launch.
The remaining subtitling gaps will be resolved in the first half of 2023.
