Programmes shown on live but not available to watch later: this will be because we don't hold the rights to show a particular programme or film on catch-up. An example of this is Good Morning Britain (GMB) which although is available on the live stream and STV+1, it is not available for catch-up.


Programmes shown on other channels: While the main STV and ITV channels show many of the same programmes, those shown on other ITV channels e.g. ITV2 are not available on STV.

As an STV viewer you can access the ITV Hub and although you will not be able to watch the main ITV channel the other channels are available to you. So you can still watch shows such as Love Island via the ITV Hub.


Box sets not showing on my app: Some sporting events and our STV Player exclusive content (e.g. The Firm, Notorious, The Client List etc) use an enhance encryption (DRM) that isn't supported by all platforms. So these shows wont show where a platform or device doesn't support DRM content.


There are many options that do support this content so you can watch them on the STV web site, mobile apps (iOS and Android), Fire TV,  Apple TV, Freeview Play, Virgin Media and Sky,


DRM content will also not be available to cast via Chromecast or to download (for STV Player+ users on iOS).
