STV, the ITV Scotland broadcaster, has launched its latest platform, the STV Player App in the Apple App Store and in Google Play, allowing viewers to watch 30 days of catch-up within the Scottish broadcasting area.
The STV Player App is free to download and free to use* on Android and iOS devices.
The App allows viewers to catch-up on programmes, including STV favourites such as Coronation Street, Downton Abbey, X Factor and Scotland Tonight. With the App, users can search for programmes, access A – Z and category listings and browse recommended, recent and popular STV programmes.
Alistair Brown, Chief Technology and Platforms Officer at STV said: “STV is committed to making its wealth of content available free of charge to consumers anytime, anywhere. STV’s digital channels already attract over 3 million unique users per month and we anticipate this will continue to rise as the STV Player App on Android and iOS further enhances STV’s multi-channel offering.”
The launch of the App marks further progress with STV’s Anywhere strategy, serving content free across all available platforms, and is in addition to the highly popular STV News app the broadcaster states.
STV operate two ITV franchises, for North and Central Scotland. The company began back in 1959 and has produced some of ITV’s classic programming including Taggart and High Road.
