The channel was launched in 1997 by Granada Media under the name Granada UKTV, and offered cable and satellite services in Middle East, Malta and Asia.[1] It was also carried by Sky Network Television in New Zealand between 1999 and 2002.[2]

The service was expanded and relaunched as Granada TV during 2008, when ITV announced plans to offer the channel to cable and satellite operators in Asia.[3]

On 1 November 2010, it was rebranded as ITV Granada.[4] The channel was renamed again as ITV Choice on 25 March 2013.[5]

The channel became available on the Samsung TV Plus platform in Australia in December 2022.[8]
