Revealing its first quarter performance today (11 May), the broadcaster claimed TV advertising revenues were up 12%, helping overall revenues to climb 11% to £500m.
April ad revenues were up 6%, but declines are expected for May and June due to the difficulty of matching the spend that last year's World Cup attracted.
However, chief executive Adam Crozier said the company expected to outperform the market across the whole of the year, while remaining cautious about the economic outlook.
Crozier revealed that the online TV offering ITV Player would be made available on a wide range of mobiles and tablets, starting with Android smartphones "within the next few weeks", and hitting the iPhone in the third quarter.
The company did not break out its online performance for the quarter.
Its broadcasting and online division grew revenues by 12% to £436m, while its ITV Studios production business grew 7% to £64m.
Crozier also trumpeted the broadcaster's ratings recovery. ITV1's share of viewing in the year to 30 April rose from 15.7% in 2010, to 16.1% this year, although its share of commercial impacts (SOCI) dropped from 27.2% to 27.1%.
The ITV family share of viewing was up from 22.4% to 22.3%, and its SOCI increased from 39.6% to 40.3%.
