Noticed that UTV have an ident at 8:25 with a “Good Morning from UTV” v/o from Julian. It immediately followed an ITV-branded trailer for the World Cup coverage.
Presumably in central and northern Scotland it is just an ITV branded ident at this time, rather than STV?
UTV branding (idents and trails) was introduced to the 6am - 9.25am slot quite a while ago now. The ITV-branded trail that you saw would've been an error.
Actually it'll have been the very end of the CITV simulcast slot.
Yes, other than the CITV simulcasts, UTV continuity and promos are now on air 24/7, something UTV themselves never managed.
