HALO is the market leader in saliva-based PCR testing. Their ‘spit and go’ solution is the simplest and easiest to use of the myriad of offerings on the market.

ITV’s purpose is to entertain and connect with millions of people globally, reflecting and shaping culture with brilliant content and creativity. Central to that is the ITV Hub – ITV’s video-on-demand service available across browsers, connected TVs and mobile devices. In the face of ferocious competition from the likes of Netflix, Disney+ and Amazon Prime, ITV are ambitious about being the leader in UK streaming. That’s where Candyspace – as ITV’s long-standing partner – comes in. We are tasked with helping to rapidly evolve the ITV Hub from what was once primarily a catch-up service to one that’s loved by millions of viewers as a destination for the discovery of brilliant content. Through developing a range of new features that reflect the ever-increasing demands of viewers, Candyspace helped ITV Hub have its most successful year ever in 2021. Monthly active users grew by 19% on 2020. Online viewing at 630m hours was up 31% on 2020 and 25% on 2019, while advertising revenue was up 41% year on year.
