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.
