ITV has agreed a deal with Hayu – the all-reality streaming service – for over 750 hours of content to be added to the subscription tier of ITVX, in a branded area of ITVX called Hayu Select. It is expected to launch later this summer.

Many of Hayu’s most popular franchises will be available with content added to the service every six months.

Hayu Select will feature  seasons of  Keeping up with the Kardashians, The Real Housewives of Melbourne and Below Deck – as well as the latest episodes of series including Top Chef and Summer House.

ITVX Premium also provides subscribers with access to BritBox’s catalogue and all of ITVX’s wide range of content ad-free.

ITV’s Head of Content Acquisitions, Sasha Breslau commented: “We know many of our users love nothing more than a good reality TV series, and now they can browse some of the best and latest episodes ad-free.”

“Launching Hayu Select is an ideal way to provide ITVX Premium customers with added value through a sampling of popular Hayu content – at no extra cost – while helping to satiate their appetite for top-quality reality content,” said Bobby Birk, SVP, Commercial, EMEA, NBCUniversal International Networks & Direct-to-Consumer. “Having already launched a similar offering in France, the Netherlands, Finland, Norway, Sweden, we are delighted to now make this Hayu ‘taster” available in the UK as we evolve our Hayu proposition to meet the needs of customers.”
