Our key strategic priorities
ITV is an integrated producer broadcaster, operating the largest commercial family of channels in the UK.
In addition to traditional broadcasting on our channels, we deliver our content on demand through numerous platforms, both directly and via ITV Player. Through ITV Studios we produce content for both our own channels and third parties in the UK and increasingly overseas. Our distribution business sells finished programmes and formats worldwide.

ITV delivers another year of strong growth
2013 was another strong year for ITV, both operationally and financially, as we continue to make progress with our strategy of growing and rebalancing the business. External revenues were up 9%, with non-NAR revenues up £175 million (17%), and for the fourth year in a row we delivered double digit profit growth.
The media environment in which ITV operates, both as broadcaster and producer, continues to be dynamic. We must ensure that we adapt as the market changes as it presents great opportunities for ITV as an integrated producer broadcaster.
