ITV’s big switch off
Did you know that there’ll be nothing worth watching from 9:30-10:30am on Saturday 27 August?
That’s because ITV are switching off all seven of their channels from 9:30am for one hour to encourage the nation to be part of I Am Team GB.
This is the first time that ITV has stopped broadcasting in more than three decades – and it’s for a great cause.
Anyone tuning in during that hour will see the message “We’ve gone running – why don’t you join us?”
There are thousands of ways to get involved in the nation’s biggest sports day. From archery to yoga, there’s something for everyone – and you don’t have to be sporty to get involved.
You can pop along to one of thousands of free events taking place across the country – with some special appearances from Team GB athletes and ITV celebrities – or find lots of ways to get involved by yourself or with friends.
So switch off the TV, put that remote control down and set your trainers to run!
