      Yes, it's there now & has content

      You have to go to Entertainment, then ALL then click Green for Channels and Select it. The Select box is mis-positioned way too low on my screen though. Early bug ?

      Or a few examples appear on Entertainment "Recently Added".

      Seems not yet to have a category of its own - just the "ITV Player" Channel as mentioned.

      Yep there is a bit of stuff there now, some of it has collapsed listings so there are more episodes available. Surprised there isn't a ITV Player tab just yet as it is always that easy to remember how to find it.

      Alan do you get the buggy (i.e. half-hidden) dropdown of the channels too ? Or do I just need to boot to a newer version?

      Thing is that I watch so much bloomin tv that I rarely need a catch up service - how sad, lol

      I have two boxes and on one of them the menus can be a little bit slow some days but on the 1TB box they are fine.

      For reference, ITV Player now appears as a new channel on the Anytime+ menu.

      If you navigate to the Anytime menu, click <Left> to show the 'Channel' tab, ITV Player is the first one on the list.

      Already downloaded Griff's 24 hour tour of Rome, which I'd missed in 2009. 40 degree heat, poor guy, no wonder the attractions lookeed less busy than usual.

      Useful addition, well done Sky.

      They have fixed the menu problem for filtering to channels.
