STV has added an additional 650 hours of content to its streaming service.
Its secured deals with Entertainment One and Sony Pictures Television, boosting its catalogue to over 150 boxed sets including 50 drama series.
The agreement with Entertainment One includes both series of US thriller Ice, which stars Ray Winstone and explores the ruthless world of the diamond trade, as well as sci-fi spin-off Primeval: New World and crime series Rogue, starring Thandie Newton.
The SPT deal brings glamorous period drama Pan Am – which stars Christina Ricci and Margot Robbie in one of her earliest roles – along with legal dramas Notorious and Canterbury’s Law, and British three-parter The Ice Cream Girls, which follows the story of two teenagers accused of murdering their schoolteacher (Martin Compston).
Richard Williams, Managing Director of Digital at STV, said: “We extended our partnership with Sky at the end of last year, which means that STV Player is now available on all major platforms across the UK and our addressable audience has significantly increased. Dropping over 650 hours of new content seems like the perfect way to welcome our new viewers.”
The Scottish commercial channel has been building its distribution across the United Kingdom, distributing its own, and acquired content. STV Player now available on all major platforms and pre-installed in three quarters of the UK’s connected TV homes.
