Big performers are Love Island, with 335m views, while the recent FIFA Women’s World Cup is ITVX’s most watched sport with 15m streams. the Tour de France was viewed 5m times – a 34% increase on last year.

ITV will be hoping that the return of Big Brother will also add further growth. The series heads to ITV2 and ITVX in the Autumn, with footage from the house live streamed on ITVX.
