SKY Q customers have gained access to yet another free streaming app on their TVs today.

The broadcasting giant is finally making STV Player available to everyone across the UK.

The platform not only benefits telly lovers in Scotland but there’s a bunch of shows for everyone in the UK to enjoy as well.

Not least of all classic soap Brookside, which was recently added to STV Player.

Twenty years after the show ended, the soap – based in the residents of the Scouse cul-de-sac – is being replayed in full.

It means viewers can relive some memorable storylines, including TV’s first pre-watershed lesbian kiss involving Anna Friel, a helicopter crash and the murder of abusive Trevor Jordache, who was famously found buried under the patio of number 10 in 1995.

STV is adding five episodes of the iconic show every week.

STV Player was already available on Sky Glass and Sky Stream.

But on Sky Q customers could only access boxsets.

The STV Player app should appear under the apps section of your box.

It’s free to use with ads.

Unless you’ve paid for ad-skipping from Sky.

Viewers outside of Scotland won’t be able to get STV/ITV network content on the STV Player due to licensing.

Instead you’ll find network content on ITVX.
