ITV X rollout

I notice that several non Youview devices had the ITV Hub replaced by ITV X today.
Do we know when the app will start appearing on Youview devices ?

    Will have a look at my Amazon Firestick later when I get in.
    Hopefully the Youview box will also get the ITVX update soon. 
    I dont have the BT prob box but one of the other Youview boxes.

    When it does arrive we'll lose the Britbox app as that's now incorporated into itvx.

    Bizarrely subscribers to itvx can access Britbox but current Britbox subscribers can't access the paid for segment of itvx.

    ITVX is still not arrived on my Amazon firestick.
    Still have the ITV Hub.
    @kodikid not that I have Britbox or even want Britbox as have no interest in getting it but it seems strange that subscribers to ITVX can get Britbox. Yet those that already have Britbox cant get the paid version of ITVX.

    For those services with an integrated search, like YouView, allow for a more complex transition to a new app like itvX, now incorporating Britbox, than on those platforms that can simply swap out the old app and swap in the new one without concerning itself with the data or metadata, as Roku can.

    Totally agree. YouView - simple on top, complex underneath.
    I'm now happy with the disagree icon, because its gone.

    So that's why youview hasn't added any new apps in literally years and doesn't have
    Disney 
    YouTube 
    Apple 
    FilmRise ...

    No. Thats not the reason. Yet again you declare yourself the sage of all things YouView. Thankfully, thats not the case and so will stick with the Tech team. Best option.

    Must be nice for him to have an alter ego who agrees with everything he says, though 😛

    Sage - one (such as a profound philosopher) distinguished for wisdom. A mature or venerable person of sound judgment. The opposite word to sage is fool.

    Disney + is now one of the main streaming services that I watch.
    Even my sister in the last short while has started watching Disney + a little more and also using her 2021 Amazon Firestick 4k that I got her last Christmas.
