STV Player+ subscribers who have a compatible iOS device (iPhone or iPad) get the option to download some of our content to watch later/offline.

The programmes available to download are mostly the on-demand versions of shows already broadcast on the main STV channel. Live events, films and exclusive box sets will not be available for download due to rights restrictions.

To download a show:

  • Go to the show you want to download and tap the download icon   beside each episode you want to download.
  • The programme will then be checked to see if it's eligible to be downloaded.
  • Episodes will be queued and you can check on the progress of all downloads by visiting the Download section in the bottom navigation bar.
  • Once complete these shows will be stored in the Download section and can be viewed from here.

Some things to note:

  • Some shows may not be available to download due to rights restrictions.
  • Downloads will expire after 7 days or at the programme's planned expiry date if this comes first. 
  • The first download could take a few seconds before it starts downloading, but any other queued downloads will then start immediately.
  • The amount of storage space you have on your device and the strength of your WiFi connection will impact on your ability to successfully download shows to your device.
