More than 1,500 hours of free catch-up and on-demand content from STV is now available to viewers in England, Wales and Northern Ireland after the Scottish broadcaster’s on-demand app joined Freeview Play’s UK-wide line-up of catch-up players.
Exclusive content available through STV Player includes the US version of The Bridge and Australian dramas Janet King, Rake and The Slap, plus archive shows such as Taggart and Rebus.
The app joins BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All 4, My5, UKTV Play, CBS Catchup Channels UK and Horror Bites in Freeview Play’s UK-wide line-up.
Richard Williams, STV’s Managing Director, Digital, said: “The reach of the STV Player is constantly growing and joining the UK’s fastest-growing TV platform, Freeview Play, this week is a fantastic development in our growth story.
“We’re constantly enhancing our offering and are incredibly proud of the strong drama programming alongside live sport, kids’ shows and factual entertainment series.
“There’s genuinely something for everyone and we’re thrilled to be on board with Freeview Play across the UK, significantly expanding our reach.”
Owen Jenkinson, Marketing Director at Freeview, said: “At Freeview we are always striving to deliver the best possible free to air viewing experience.
“The launch of STV Player nationwide means Freeview Play is now home to eight on demand players, giving viewers all the most watched shows, all for free.”
