Scottish broadcaster STV has confirmed the launch of its on-demand service STV Player on Roku devices in the UK.

The type of service viewers will experience depends on the viewer's postcode input:

Viewers using a Roku streaming player in Central and Northern Scotland will be able to live stream and catch-up on popular STV shows including Broadchurch, Emmerdale and Coronation Street.

Roku users in other parts of the UK will be able to live stream STV's City channels STV Glasgow and STV Edinburgh and catch-up on original STV Player content, such as classic Taggart and Rebus, along with STV’s flagship news and current affairs coverage.

The launch is in time for the live stream of STV's coverage of the Scottish Parliament discussing a second independence referendum, which will be streamed on the STV Player via the STV Glasgow and STV Edinburgh channel feeds from 2:00pm on the 21st and 22nd March 2017. The stream will be available across the UK and on all devices that support the STV Player.

Ed Lee, vice president content acquisition at Roku, added: 
“We always strive to offer the widest possible content selection to our customers. Adding STV Player to the Roku Channel Store will make our streaming players even more appealing to Scottish consumers.”
