ITV Encore goes live

ITV’s new drama channel ITV Encore goes live tonight in the UK on Sky Channel 123. 

The network is dedicated to “the best of contemporary British ITV drama” and at launch will air shows including Mrs Biggs, Poirot, Whitechapel and DCI Banks.

From 2015, ITV said the channel will also screen original commissions, alongside successful ITV dram series from recent years.

In February, ITV also announced plans to launch a new female-focused channel, ITVBe, which is due to go live towards the end of the year.
