STV Player is expanding its service UK-wide on TV platform Freeview Play.
Some 1500 hours of free content is now available on the Scottish VoD catch-up service, and will now also be accessible for viewers across the rest of the UK.
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, added: “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.”
