What surprised me is that the station is ‘powered by the STV Player’ which the station actively promoted throughout the programme. It is a DAB only station, but I’ve never heard of the likes of this happening before.
'powered by', as in 'sponsored by'?

I hadn't heard of this station, but they're not easy to find on the Google, as the first page is occupied by radio receivers manufactured by the company formerly known as Videologic.

Not a smart move for a radio station to have the same name as a manufacturer of radios.


Imagine having TV channels named after a brand of tellies, ...umm, ah..!

Which has been around since the 70s, when Granada started their TV rental business.


Yes, and the first cinema film I ever saw was Live and Let Die in the Chichester Granada.

During the corona outbreak, STV might have the opportunity to resume the 500+ hour long episodes of A Country Practice which they never reached, screened by all other ITV regions in the 1990s. They could also finish the last 40 or so Sullivans episodes which they dumped and they could even screen The Young Doctors for the first time.

In which reality are STV going to do any of this?

Question in recent weeks stv has developed the practice of opting straight to nightscreen when itv goes to TELESHOPPING and then coming out for the signed programme before going back to nightscreen as per itv.previous the signed programme would play first and then nightscreen long play would start often for around 4 hours before judge finder at 505. What do we think the thinking here is behind the change, is it Coronavirus related or something else. P.s I know that nightscreen due to the different musics used counts as regional programming which for stv should make a different as completely separate from itv and the constraints that, that incurs, being an affiliate more freedom.Also why not do stv nightscreen instead of itv nightscreen if your not a itv plc service. Your thoughts please on both questions which currently fascinate me - thanks!

Anyone got a clue on when we think STV will resume that Driving Test programme? They seemed to have dropped it quietly for past couple weeks now, why air a programme to later drop and not tell the viewer when to expect a return?

I was at least expecting STV to have either aired it later that same night or found a slot somewhere else to keep with the flow with ITV, but lo and behold everything STV nothing surprises me!
