Here's a drama commissioned by ITV just this year. Scottish writer, Scottish detective, set in Scotland.

Commissioned by ITV from an ITV owned company. STV will have their chances though but drama is a competitive and expensive market now, and frankly looking beyond supplying the ITV network is in the interests of STV.

Ironically too given their recent purchase history I suspect ITV would be much more inclined to buy STV as a production company rather than a franchise holder.
Turns out nobody had 2020 vision.

Another big drama commission for STV, this time to be shown on Channel Four.

Scotland Tonight back at 10.40pm on Wed 9th then on again at the usual time of 7.30 a day later. Why?

10.40pm is always the normal time for Scotland Tonight. Thursday was changed to 7.30pm instead of showing Tonight that's in the rest of the Network.

STV Player has had an update on AppleTV, STV channels are still much better quality than ITV. The big change is that a couple of on demand Stingray Qello concerts are now available from Rick Astley and Simple Minds. Stingray Qello being one of the player's linear extra channels. SQ have loads of material, it'll be interesting to see whether this is expanded and to what extent. Both of these concerts are HQ if not HD.

To be expected really, I wonder how they will fare through the rest of the year. I assume it will start to pick up soon and then the Christmas season begins.

Just heard in a promo for stv advertising being referred to as stv east, not heard that in a while.

Why did they play the itv weather after Scotland tonight had finished why not play it after NaT or after the stv bulletin.

They always show the STV weather after News at Ten and then the national weather later.
