Users of second generation Freesat Humax boxes, sold between 2012 and 2018, will lose the ITV Hub on 28th September.
The Humax receivers were once sold under the Freesat Freetime brand, and first launched on the market with support for ITV Hub’s predecessor, the ITV Player.
As previously reported, ITV is upgrading its streaming service again, ahead of launching ITVX. This includes new content protection measures that aren’t supported on older receivers.
1st generation Freesat boxes lost out on ITV Hub years ago when it ceased to support older MHEG technology.
