Users on Android 11 or later will see the following permission request when they first access the app after download.

Allow STV Player to make and manage phone calls, notification message.


This is a generic message generated by the device OS, and covers many individual permissions. The STV App only requires access to check to see what data network and speed you use, which helps understand any issues around delivery of streaming over data networks and helps us to optimise our services for these networks. We don't access or manage any of your phone calling functions but are still required to show the generic permission message, as the information we do check is covered under this telephone settings area. No personal information is accessed.

This permission is optional and wont impact your usage of STV Player should you choose to deny access.
