STV Player has announced it is available to consumers on NOW TV Boxes across the UK.

Those using a NOW TV Box within STV’s licence area in Scotland can enjoy STV content via live stream or catch-up, with programmes ranging from top drama Grantchester, popular soaps Emmerdale and Coronation Street, and hit entertainment shows such as Britain’s Got Talent.

“We continue to work with a range of partners to make sure STV content is available to consumers anywhere and anytime they want it.”
