A new website specifically designed to be viewed on mobile phones has today been launched by STV. The site will allow users to access all of STV’s news, sport and entertainment stories via their handset.
The broadcaster’s latest interactive offering is available via a public preview – a trial period were the broadcaster will take on board comments and feedback before launching further mobile-based offerings.
According to STV, the site – compatible with all 'smart' phones – has been designed to show the best format for each individual device, automatically. It has also been designed to work on slow internet connections to ensure that maximum accessibility is provided.
Says Alistair Brown, Head of Digital at STV: “The mobile website has been developed by as part of our STV Anywhere strategy, our commitment to making STV’s content available to our audience anytime, anywhere.”
“We are delighted to be able to offer our mobile users a first-class experience with clear formatting and a fast download speed – no matter how slow the connection.”
