ITVX launches British Sign Language channel
In brief

Deaf and hearing-impaired viewers will have access to a channel solely featuring signed programming when ITVX launches on 8 December.

In what the broadcaster calls a worldwide streaming first, the channel will be regularly updated with recent and archive programming across a range of genres, and will initially include omnibus episodes of Emmerdale and Coronation Street as well as Cilla, Alan Carr’s Epic Gameshow, Vera, Lewis, and The Saint.

ITVX will launch with a selection of 20 themed channels which will appear in the “live” section beneath ITV’s six existing channels.
