TV remains at the heart of popular culture, and is the only media that can truly unite the nation. Through entertainment, education and news, TV is the perfect platform to tell your brand’s story. Reaching practically everyone, every week, TV gets you noticed. 

When it comes to return on investment, TV advertising wins every time. There are many different ways to advertise - whatever your goal, we’ll make sure your message is brought to life in a memorable way.

We offer anything between multiple five to 120-second ad spots and even full break takeovers! There are also other options such as teleshopping if you’d prefer 30 minutes to tell your story.

There’s more than one way to get seen on ITV, you can choose from:

  • Commercial break advertising, where your ad campaign can be anything from five to 120 seconds long

  • Creative breaks, where brands can take over entire ad breaks to really capture the nation's attention

  • Reactive breaks, where parts of the ad's creative can be changed moments before it’s aired to respond to live events

  • Teleshopping advertising, where your story can be shared in a 30-minute segment


Whatever you choose, we’ll work with you to make sure your campaign is delivered at a scale that suits you.

The Cost of TV Advertising

advertising costs

ITV Advance Booking Deadlines 2023 

We’re ending all charges for bookings made after AB deadlines, up to the month of transmission. If you’re an advertiser wanting to stick to your original AB deadline you can continue to do so, and you’ll hold on to all your original benefits, according to your deal: whether that’s agreed dayparts, centre breaks (CBs), position in breaks (PIBs), Pick Your Own (PYO) programme selection and any agreed discounts. The exception to this is contracts which state that schedules are delivered 10 days before the month of transmission.
