STV launches new SVoD service



STV has entered the subscription video on-demand market with a paid for version of the STV Player, available at home and abroad.

STV Player+ will provide access to all of STV’s must-see programming in full HD, but without the ads. Subscribers will be able to catch up ad-free or watch live with no pre-roll advertising as well as download their favourite programmes for offline viewing at home or on the move.

The new service will also allow subscribers to view STV content in Europe for the first time.

STV Player+ is available on iOS (Apple devices) for £3.99 per month after a seven day free trial, and viewers can subscribe directly from their STV Player app or download it from the App Store. The service will be available on other platforms in due course.

STV Player is the exclusive Scottish home of some of the UK’s most popular TV programmes, including the soaps Coronation Street and Emmerdale, big entertainment shows like Britain’s Got Talent and I’m a Celebrity, must-see boxsets like Cold Feet, Vera and Manhunt, and huge sporting events like the Six Nations Rugby and forthcoming 2019 Rugby World Cup.

Richard Williams, STV’s Managing Director, Digital, said:
We are delighted to be able to enhance our offering to STV viewers. Subscription viewing is growing, and the STV Player+ offers our viewers even greater choice and flexibility in how they watch STV, ensuring that they can access their favourite STV shows however and whenever they want, whether at home or abroad.
