ITV to Become U.K. Free-to-Air Home of WarnerMedia Shows


ITV has signed a deal with WarnerMedia International Television Distribution that will make it the exclusive free-to-air home of programs such as The Sex Lives of College Girls in the U.K.

The first season of The Sex Live of College Girls, a comedy series created by Mindy Kaling and Justin Noble, will have its U.K. premiere exclusively on ITV Hub and ITV2 in April. The second season will follow in due course on ITVX.

The deal covers all seasons of Hart of Dixie, The OC and One Tree Hill and the first three seasons of Veronica Mars, to be made available on ITV and ITV Hub next month, with all four seasons of All American being made available in May.

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, The Lying Game, The Carrie Diaries, Hellcats, Nikita, Chuck, Everwood, Supernatural and The 100 are also included in the deal and will be made available via ITVX later this year.

ITV’s head of content acquisitions, Sasha Breslau, said: “We are delighted to announce our partnership with Warner Bros., which will allow our audiences to enjoy a diverse collection of programming, including the eagerly awaited The Sex Lives of College Girls.”
