stv HD logoAt long last STV HD has been added to both Sky and Freesat.

On Freesat, STV HD can be found on channel 119.

On Sky, it launched on channel 178, except for Sky HD viewers in the STV West (Glasgow) region, where it will appear on channel 103, swapping with the standard definition version. This is because the version of STV HD matches the existing STV West standard definition channel, and therefore qualifies for a swap.

More information can be found @ www.a516digital.com/2014/04/stv-hd-launches-on-sky-and-freesat.html.
