I have just changed my Sony Bravo to freeview. The picture quality is better than what I received from Virgin. When trying to view on catchup BBC works alright. With all ITV stations the menu comes up and allows selection, the logo and advertising plays you reach the program the title comes up but doesn't load. My set is a year old, and when I first loaded their apps about 4 days ago they all worked. With the rest of the download information displaying correctly I can't visualize it being a fault with my aerial or TV.

Graham Gittins: Your catchup service have nothing to do with your aerial, unless its a Youview TV, in which case its a hybrid.
Try updating the app - ITV has always been a bit of a pain, and if needed, perhaps a factory reset and install. If its an Android TV, then you should have Youview, and thats easier to acces.
