STV has confirmed it will launch STV HD on satellite at the end of April.

From Monday April 28, 2014, the new service will be available for Sky HD subscribers in Glasgow and the west on channel 103, and Sky channel 178 in other areas. Freesat viewers will be able to access STV HD on channel 119.

It means viewers will be able to enjoy the World Cup and Champions League final on STV HD on satellite platforms.

Bobby Hain, director of channels at STV, said: “We are committed to making our HD service available to consumers within STV’s licence areas. We know this is a service our audiences want to receive and are pleased to confirm that the HD service will be available on Sky and Freesat from April 28.”
