STV launches new version of the STV Player

Tagged in: Press Releases
A brand new version of the STV Player is available for consumers from today.
 
The third version of the STV Player offers a faster, more robust and flexible service for consumers within STV’s licence areas in Scotland to enjoy programmes live or on catch-up.
 
STV favourites such as Coronation Street and Britain’s Got Talent are available to view free of charge on the STV Player for 30 days, while STV News at Six and Scotland Tonight bring viewers all the latest news and current affairs.
 
The STV Player also features catch-up and a live stream of STV’s city TV channels, STV Glasgow and STV Edinburgh. Content from these channels is available throughout the UK.
 
Bobby Hain, STV’s director of channels, said: “We want viewers to watch the STV content they choose free of charge, anytime, anywhere and this updated version of the STV Player offers an enhanced experience for our consumers to do this.
 
“The launch of version 3 also reinforces STV’s commitment to investing in content on multi-platforms and the new STV Player has been through robust user experience testing with consumers to ensure it provides the experience our viewers are looking for.
 
“The updates to the STV Player ensure it is consumer focused with easily accessible content and integrated live streaming of STV and STV’s city channels.”
 
From today (12th May), the updated STV Player is available on player.stv.tv. Updates of our dedicated apps for iOS, Android and Kindle will follow soon, with additional platform roll outs in September.
