I HAVE PUT THIS IS THE WRONG SECTION BY MISTAKE! I HAVE ASKED DOOYOO TO MOVE IT FOR ME.
I would say that ITV is the channel I watch most out of all the channels out there. After saying that I am not quite sure why I have Sky TV now! ITV is a public service network set up to provide competition to the BBC by the Independent Television Authority. We first got ITV way before I was born in 1955 and since then it has gone from strength to strength. Most people refer to ITV as channel 3, I know I always have, I think it has been more recent since you are noticing it as ITV more.
More so relevant at the moment with the election coming up ITV are legally obliged to screen party election broadcasts on behalf of all the major political parties, and also other political events such as the Budget. However this isn't the reason why I watch ITV!
Some of the biggest shows on TV are on ITV such as Coronation Street and Emmerdale. These are long last soaps that are widely loved not just all over the UK but all over the world (I have family in Mauritius who watch Coronation Street). I also like the celebrity reality shows that are shown on ITV such as X Factor, Britain's got Talent and I'm a Celebrity...get me out of here! I think the fact that these shows are on there makes ITV appeal to me so much.
I also find that on a Saturday television in general is quite poor during the evening and it only seems to be ITV who are putting anything on screen that seems to be of interest. Part of this is due to the brilliant names they have signed up to ITV, I am not going to list them all but those who deserve a mention are Ant and Dec who have done so much for British television and are extremely entertaining. I tend to watch every show that they appear in.
ITV is slightly different all over the country. Some aspects of this are a really good idea because you get local news aswel as national news so you can find out more about your local area. News is often very serious and it should be but sometimes there should be some lighter, happier news delivered in a more outgoing and friendly manner; I find that this is more entertaining to watch.
ITV also offers good coverage on sport especially so on football. I find that the commentary actually shows less bias than some of the other channels.
ITV can be watched by anyone, there are all types of shows on there, there are even shows for the young ones in the family.
The quality of programming on ITV is very good (there is some rubbish still though) so I would recommend this channel to all, but I think most of you TV watchers probably already do!
Summary: Good tv channel to rival all others
