First, you’ll need to locate ITVX on your Sky Q interface. This is simpler than it sounds. Navigate to the Apps rail or the Apps menu on your Sky Q box. Here, you’ll find a variety of applications, including ITVX. Select ITVX to get started.
Now, you might wonder, “What’s the Apps rail?” or “Where’s the Apps menu?” Don’t worry. I’ve been there too. The Apps rail is a row of applications you can scroll through on your Sky Q home screen. On the other hand, the Apps menu is a dedicated section where you can view and select from all the available applications.
Every Sky Q box might have a slightly different interface depending on the model and software version. So, don’t be alarmed if your screen looks a bit different. The key is to look for the section where your applications are housed. Once you find that, locating ITVX will be a breeze.
And there you have it! You’ve successfully located ITVX on your Sky Q box. But that’s just the beginning. The following section delve into the different ITVX subscription options and how to sign up. Stay tuned!

Signing into ITVX on Sky Q
Great job so far! You’ve located ITVX on your Sky Q box and chosen the subscription that’s right for you. It’s time to sign in to ITVX on your Sky Q box. If you’re feeling a bit nervous, don’t worry. I’ve got you covered.
When you open the ITVX app on your Sky Q box, you’ll be asked to sign in to your account. If you already have an ITVX account, you can sign in using your TV remote. If you don’t have an account yet, you’ll need to create one.
Creating an ITVX account is straightforward. You’ll be guided through the process on your screen. Once you’ve created your account, you can sign in on your Sky Q box.
Here’s a tip from someone who’s been there: signing in with your TV remote can be a bit tedious, especially if you have a long email address or password. But there’s an easier way. You can sign in by going to itv.com/pair and entering the six-digit code on your screen. Trust me; it’s a lot quicker!
Navigating ITVX on Sky Q
Congratulations! You’re now signed into ITVX on your Sky Q box. Now comes the fun part – exploring the vast array of content that ITVX offers. But with so much to choose from, where do you start? Let’s dive into the ITVX interface on Sky Q.
When you open ITVX, you’ll find yourself on the Home screen. You can browse various sections like Top Picks, Just In, and Continue Watching here. These sections are curated to help you find something to watch based on your preferences and viewing history.
Navigating these sections is easy with your Sky Q remote. Use the arrow buttons to scroll through the options, and press the select button when you find something you want to watch.
But that’s not all. You’ll see more menu options if you press left on your Sky Q remote. Here, you can create new profiles, adjust settings, and more. This is particularly useful if you have family members wanting to have ITVX profiles.
And what about those times when you’re in the middle of a show and need to pause or rewind? No problem. Press the Sky Q remote’s select button to bring up the playback controls. You can pause, play, rewind, or fast forward from here.
Watching ITVX Content on Sky Q
You’ve made it this far, and now it’s time for the main event – watching ITVX content on your Sky Q box. This is where all your preparation pays off. So, grab your remote, get comfortable, and let’s dive in.
Once you’ve navigated the ITVX interface and found a show or movie you want to watch, select it using your Sky Q remote. You’ll be taken to a screen with more information about the content, including a brief synopsis, the cast, and the runtime. When you’re ready to start watching, press the select button on your remote.
Now, let’s talk about ads. If you’re using the free version of ITVX, you’ll encounter ads during your viewing. But here’s a tip: if you have Ad Skipping on Sky Q, you can fast-forward through ads. To do this, press the select button while watching something, then press right, and select the fast forward icon. It’s a handy feature that can enhance your viewing experience.
And what about subtitles? If you prefer to watch with subtitles, ITVX has got you covered. To turn on subtitles while watching a programme, press Select on your Sky Q remote, and select the S button. Please note that this won’t work during the adverts.
