ITV Q1 2024 results: Advertising looking up as Studios fights headwinds

9 May 2024

A drop in Studios' revenue—attributed to phasing of content deliveries and strikes— saw ITV's external revenue down 6% to £727 million in Q1. An improvement in advertising could not offset this drop but H2 will be better for production and see Studios flat for FY 2024 

After big launch momentum, the growth of ITVX appears to be slowing, while the service's release strategy continues to evolve

ITV’s total advertising revenue (TAR) was up 3% in Q1 to £432 million (2023: £419 million). H1 is forecast to be up 8%, with Q2 up 12%, buoyed by the Euros which start in June
