STV News Special - Retaining identity - Netflix

STV has resisted the adoption of the generic ITV branding that is now commonplace throughout the ITV plc regions in the southern Scottish borders, England and Wales, Northern Ireland, and the Channel Islands, although it has now adopted a single identity for both its franchises. The only mentioning of the ITV brand on Channel 3 in the STV regions occurs during live tv shows (like Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway), ITV Breakfast (Good Morning Britain and Lorraine), which operates as a separate station, networked programmes, and national ITV News bulletins.
