Changes to STV HD and BBC Scotland

STV_logo.png

 

STV has agreed to a five-year strategic partnership with us that will lead to Sky customers in Scotland gaining access to STV’s regional variants in full HD as well as catch-up services.

 

All four STV regions will launch in HD to create the first fully regionalised public service broadcaster HD service on our platform, giving Sky customers across Scotland access to regional STV programming including STV News at Six. The new HD variants are expected to launch in the first half of 2019.

 

The STV Player will be available on both Sky Q and Sky+ set-top boxes, as well as mobile devices via streaming and offline viewing from the second half of 2019.

 

The dedicated BBC Scotland channel launches next month.

I read that yesterday and my heart sank. I loathe STV  it is amateur hour and embarrassing and I look forward to BBC Scotland with all the enthusiasm of a colonoscopy . Another channel not to be watched. 😂

Re: Changes to STV HD and BBC Scotland

I’m afraid I disagree gents. STV North provides good local news coverage without the Central Belt or London dominance. The rest of the crap is as bad as the rest of ITV. Too dumb downed and too many adverts.

Re: Changes to STV HD and BBC Scotland

Not all STV/ITV programming is lousy. In fact, tomorrow Vera starts season 9 on one of the ITV channels.

BBC Scotland launches on 24 February

Still Game.jpg

 

The BBC has announced full details of how audiences can find the new BBC Scotland television channel when it launches on 20 February.

 

The new channel will be available in HD via Sky on Sky Guide 976.

 

From midnight on Sunday 17 February, BBC Two Scotland will cease to broadcast to viewers in Scotland.

 

After this date, viewers in Scotland will receive the network version of BBC Two and content that would traditionally have been broadcast on BBC Two Scotland will become part of the content mix on the BBC Scotland channel.

 

Customers with non-HD boxes will instead receive BBC Scotland in SD on 115.

 

The new BBC Scotland TV channel is to launch on 20 February and will feature the first episode of the final series of comedy Still Game.

Re: BBC Scotland launches on 24 February

@Federica-CWhat about BBC Two HD that's already in 115? What's happening to that? BBC Two Soctland is 102 and in SD. Will BBC Two HD move to 102?

That would be BBC Scotland HD on 115. What channel will BBC Scotland SD on?

 

@Laing1  There is no BBC Two Scotland HD.
