ITV's Redesigned Web site Gets a Thumbs Down

itv ITV's Redesigned Web site Gets a Thumbs Down

ITV has launched a completely redesigned version of their website at

The British broadcaster, who owns the TV rights to show the Champions League on UK television, is supposed to have integrated a Player on the site to rival BBC’s popular Player that displays some of the best audio and video. However, despite the colorful redesign of ITV’s site, it’s not easy to find the Player link. If it’s not intuitive how to find it, that’s a huge error.

And even when you try to play video (check out ITV’s Champions League page here), you quickly find out that it’s only compatible on browsers using Internet Explorer 6 or above. I can’t believe that ITV didn’t design it to work on the Firefox browser!

Looks like the video isn’t available for visitors outside the UK unfortunately.
