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.

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

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