Channel 113

In the last 2 days channel 113HD has been removed and is now sited at channel 103HD, previously 103SD was Edinburgh regional news and channel 113HD was Glasgow regional news, where now can the people of Scotland view Glasgow regional news ? 

Thank you,

Re: Channel 113

STV HD on 103 should now be a fully regional service. So the region that was on 103 should still be there, except it’s now in HD.

Channel 103 always was Edinburgh regional news and still is,

Channel 113 was Glasgow regional news, and has now gone, so it now appears that all the population of Scotland have only Edinburgh regional news available to them, absolutely shoddy treatment for the people of Scotland.

As explained above, everyone using Freeview & Cable now receives the HD region local to them. The only reason everyone in Scotland had STV West in HD is because until now it was the only sub-region available in HD. Now all the other STV sub-regions are available in HD they consider there is no reason to give you a sub-region not meant for your area. Plus they were paying Virgin to provide 2 feeds to every customer. It is also STVs decision to remove SD completely from Virgin.

As nodrogd explained, you now get the HD sub-region applicable to the area in which you live on Channel 103 i.e.

Dundee, Perth, NE Fife - STV North - Tayside

Edinburgh, Lothians, South & Central Fife - STV Central - East

Glasgow, West Central Scotland & Ayrshire - STV Central - West
