This website refers to this area as your place to catch up on all your missed programs. We were particularly impressed by the ITV Player. Currently, it is in its beta stage and they are still testing but we found no issues with usage. Their ITV Player section will allow you to catch up on missed programs by day they were missed or by most popular watched programs. Additionally, programs can be searched by genre such as drama, action, or comedy. Many of these episodes can be watched for a nominal fee of under a dollar per episode. However, not all videos must be paid for. They provide a service known as "free catch up" that provide its users with episodes that can be watched for free. These videos load very quickly and are generally about 22 minutes in length.
