Satellite update: STV adds last remaining micro region

Timeshift channel STV+1 has been replaced with the micro Channel 3 region serving the Dundee area on satellite.

STV+1 has been available on satellite, but not carried on either Sky or Freesat channel guides for the past few years. Now the service has been replaced with the last remaining STV micro region not available on satellite.

The micro region, referred to either as 'Dundee' or 'Tayside', covers the area served terrestrially by the Angus transmitter and its relays. It is part of the STV North (ex-Grampian TV) region for Channel 3 licensing purposes.

Viewers receiving Sky in the following postcodes will see the new service replace the existing STV North (Aberdeen) channel on 103 between 17th and 24th September 2014. Series links will need to be reset when the changes are complete. STV HD is unaffected.
DD1, DD11, DD2, DD3, DD4, DD5, DD6, DD7, DD8, DD9, FK19, KY14, KY15, KY16, PH1, PH10, PH11, PH12, PH13, PH14, PH15, PH16, PH17, PH18, PH2, PH3, PH4, PH5, PH6, PH7, PH8 and PH9.

Micro regions offer advertisers the opportunity to target smaller chunks of a larger Channel 3 region, wherever a region is served by multiple transmitters. They also enable broadcasters to carry additional local news opt-outs.

Viewers in the UK, Ireland and limited parts of the near continent with a Sky or Freesat dish can manually tune in the service using the following parameters: frequency: 10.906, polarisation: V, symbol rate: 22.000, FEC: 5/6, SID: 10225.
