<description>&lt;div&gt;&lt;img src=”https://cdn.images.express.co.uk/img/dynamic/59/750×445/1374328.jpg” class=”ff-og-image-inserted”&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div readability=”38″&gt;&lt;p&gt;Sky has confirmed details of a new deal that sees hundreds of hours of boxsets from STV land on Sky Q boxes nationwide at no extra cost. STV and Sky signed an agreement last year, which saw Sky Q customers in Scotland enjoy content from the free-to-air channel, which is part of the ITV network, on-demand.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div readability=”52.525547445255″&gt;&lt;p&gt;That partnership has since expired, however both companies have now agreed a new long-term agreement that means STV content will be available on Sky Q boxes across all four regions of the United Kingdom for the first time. As it stands, the partnership means Sky Q customers across the rest of the UK will now have access to hundreds of hours of STV box sets, with Sky promising that even more content from the Scottish broadcaster will be coming soon.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Sky Q customers curious to stream the new dramas, entertainment and documentary box sets available to them will find STV content in the Box Sets area of On Demand.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;STV offers an ever-expanding range of quality titles, including great US dramas like &lt;em&gt;The Bridge&lt;/em&gt; and &lt;em&gt;Gracepoint&lt;/em&gt;, as well as Australian boxsets &lt;em&gt;The Slap, Janet King&lt;/em&gt; and &lt;em&gt;Devil’s Dust&lt;/em&gt;, and Irish series &lt;em&gt;Striking Out&lt;/em&gt;, alongside original productions from the Scottish free-to-air channel.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Local programming and archive material from the broadcaster’s past will also be made available to Sky Q customers.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;MORE LIKE THIS&lt;br&gt;&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;strong&gt;&lt;a data-link-tracking=”InArticle|Link” href=”https://www.express.co.uk/life-style/science-technology/1372043/Amazon-Fire-TV-Stick-update-NOW-TV-Sky-app” data-name=”Amazon Fire TV Stick owners can now stream Sky TV without a contract” target=”_blank”&gt;Amazon Fire TV Stick owners can now stream Sky TV without a contract&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div readability=”46″&gt;&lt;p&gt;STV Digital Managing Director, Richard Williams said: “This extension of our partnership with Sky, to include UK-wide devices and NOW TV, considerably broadens the availability of the STV content to millions of new homes. 2020 has been a year of significant growth for STV Player and we’re delighted to now offer our impressive catalogue of content to viewers across all major platforms on a UK wide basis.”&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;The partnership with Sky doesn’t just impact those who pay for Sky Q each month. An STV player app will now be automatically installed on NOW TV set-top boxes too. For those who don’t know, NOW TV offers a contract-free way to stream linear channels from Sky as well as access on-demand boxsets and movies. Content from Sky Q is divvied up into different Passes, which can be bought on a monthly basis – depending on what you’re looking to watch at any one time. Sky Sports is also available in shorter 24-hour Passes, too.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div readability=”11.29476584022″&gt;&lt;div class=”text-description” readability=”45″&gt;&lt;p&gt;Elaine Thornton, Director of Partner Channels at Sky, told&lt;span&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;Express.co.uk, “We’re proud to extend our partnership with STV to offer Sky Q customers hundreds more hours of drama, international hits, local programming and news at no additional cost. STV’s great content will be available alongside unique stories from Sky Originals and the expansive range of content provided by our partners, from the BBC to HBO, through to Amazon Prime Video and Netflix – and it’s all in one place on Sky Q.”&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Those who are looking for something new to watch this weekend can find the new STV boxsets in the On Demand tab on their Sky Q box right now.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;&lt;a href=”https://blockads.fivefilters.org”&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/strong&gt; &lt;a href=”https://blockads.fivefilters.org/acceptable.html”&gt;(Why?)&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;</description>

<title>Disney+ to DOUBLE the number of shows and movies available in early 2021 at no extra cost</title>
<link>http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/daily-express-tech/~3/hDvZDc1HJIY/Disney-UK-Double-Number-Of-Shows-Movies-Star-Mature-Content
<guid ispermalink=”false”>https://www.express.co.uk/life-style/science-technology/1374077/Disney-UK-Double-Number-Of-Shows-Movies-Star-Mature-Content</guid>
<description>&lt;div&gt;&lt;img src=”https://cdn.images.express.co.uk/img/dynamic/59/750×445/1374077.jpg” class=”ff-og-image-inserted”&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div readability=”44″&gt;&lt;p&gt;Disney has confirmed plans to bring an entirely new streaming service within its existing Disney+ app. Dubbed Star, the new option will be home to more “mature” content commissioned by Walt Disney, including shows and movies acquired when it bought 20th Century Studios back in March 2019.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Alongside 20th Century Studios, Star was also included as part of the acquisition of 21st Century Fox, which was previously owned by Rupert Murdoch. Headquartered in Mumbai, Star boasts a network of 60 channels in eight languages and currently reaches roughly nine out of 10 cable and satellite TV homes across India. Disney now plans to expose millions more to the brand by making it the face of all films and shows designed for older audiences on its hugely-successful Disney+ streaming service.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div readability=”60″&gt;&lt;p&gt;Disney confirmed its plans during a recent investors call. According to the US media firm, the introduction of Star in the UK, mainland Europe and other markets will “double the amount of content” available on Disney+. UK fans will be among the first in the world to stream content from Star, when it appears in the Disney+ app on February 23 2021.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Star will appear as a separate tile on the homepage of the Disney+ app. Disney+ already has standalone tiles to access Marvel,&amp;nbsp;&lt;em&gt;Star Wars&lt;/em&gt;, Disney, Pixar and National Geographic content, so the arrival of the new option won’t require a redesign or anything drastic. Those with younger viewers at home can lock access to Star by opting out of mature content.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Certain shows and films can also be blocked using an age rating feature, Disney has confirmed.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Unlike rival Netflix, which targeted teenagers and adults from launch – before later adding a gated Kids section with educational content for younger viewers, Disney has appealed to the entire family from launch. Without much in the way of original content (at least compared with the likes of Prime Video and Netflix) when it launched in the UK back in March, Disney+ gained a dizzying number of subscribers off the back of its unmatched content library, including animated Walt Disney classics, Pixar Studio films and the complete Marvel Cinematic Universe.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div readability=”66″&gt;&lt;p&gt;During its recent investors call, Disney reassured shareholders that it had a truckload of original content planned for its streaming service, including 10 shows set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, 10 shows within the world of&amp;nbsp;&lt;em&gt;Star Wars&lt;/em&gt;, 15 series based on Disney Animation and Pixar characters. On top of that, 15 original movies exclusive to Disney+ were confirmed.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;To ensure that Disney+ catered to more audiences, Disney announced the arrival of Star. According to the company, Star will become “home to thousands of hours of television and movies from Disney’s creative studios, including Disney Television Studios, FX, 20th Century Studios, 20th Television.” However, Disney kept&amp;nbsp;&lt;em&gt;shtum&lt;/em&gt;&amp;nbsp;about any specifics.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Nevertheless, it’s not hard to imagine a number of classic film franchises, like&amp;nbsp;&lt;em&gt;Alien, Die Hard, Kingsmen&lt;/em&gt;&amp;nbsp;and&amp;nbsp;&lt;em&gt;Planet of the Apes&lt;/em&gt;, coming to the Star tab within Disney+ as well dozens of boxsets, including&amp;nbsp;&lt;em&gt;Buffy The Vampire Slayer, The X Files&lt;/em&gt;, and&amp;nbsp;&lt;em&gt;Family Guy&lt;/em&gt;. Whether Disney plans to greenlight exclusive shows and movies based in these worlds remains to be seen, but that could be a sure-fire way to ensure older viewers still feel the need to keep paying the monthly subscription fee.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div readability=”61″&gt;&lt;p&gt;The arrival of Star also paves the way for a number of shows from Hulu – a US-only streaming service owned and operated by Disney – to finally make their way to the UK. Hulu originals include the likes of&lt;span&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;em&gt;Love, Victor&lt;/em&gt;, a spin-off series set in the same world as the hit 2018 movie&lt;span&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;em&gt;Love, Simon&lt;/em&gt;, and&lt;span&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;em&gt;Solar Opposites&lt;/em&gt;, which was created by&lt;span&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;em&gt;Rick and Morty&lt;/em&gt;&lt;span&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;co-creator Justin Roiland and became the most-streamed title on Hulu following its release. But despite these viewership figures, it has never aired in the UK.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;“In terms of the general entertainment offering internationally, we want to mirror our successful Disney Plus strategy by using our Disney Plus technical platform, bringing in content we already own and distributing it under a successful international brand that we also already own, which is, of course, Star,” Disney CEO Bob Chapek told investors.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Disney+ costs £5.99 a month, although you can save money by paying £59.99 for an entire year of streaming upfront. Disney+ has a streaming app on Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Chromecast, LG and Samsung Smart TVs, Roku set-top boxes and Sky Q.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;&lt;a href=”https://blockads.fivefilters.org”&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/strong&gt; &lt;a href=”https://blockads.fivefilters.org/acceptable.html”&gt;(Why?)&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;</description>

<title>Are you missing text messages? iPhone users complain about frustrating glitch in iOS 14 </title>
<link>http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/daily-express-tech/~3/i9yam5dFXFs/Missing-Text-Messages-WhatsApp-iMessage-iPhone-iOS-14-Glitch
<guid ispermalink=”false”>https://www.express.co.uk/life-style/science-technology/1373348/Missing-Text-Messages-WhatsApp-iMessage-iPhone-iOS-14-Glitch</guid>
<description>&lt;div&gt;&lt;img src=”https://cdn.images.express.co.uk/img/dynamic/59/750×445/1373348.jpg” class=”ff-og-image-inserted”&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div readability=”40″&gt;&lt;p&gt;A growing number of iPhone owners have complained about missing text notifications following the upgrade to iOS 14. The issue appears to impact both SMS messages sent over a mobile network as well as iMessages delivered over a mobile data or Wi-Fi connection.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;So, while the text or iMessage does arrive safe and sound – your iPhone won’t tell you about it. Likewise, some iPhone owners have complained that WhatsApp messages and calls have also never been flagged on the lockscreen with a notification or&amp;nbsp;&lt;em&gt;ping!&lt;/em&gt; with a ringtone as usual.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div readability=”59.525691699605″&gt;&lt;p&gt;Granted, that’s not as bad as the text message going missing. However, it can still be pretty frustrating to miss an important iMessage, especially if it needs a timely response. Some iPhone owners have complained that the telltale red notification on the Messages app icon logo, which is usually used to flag when there’s aN unread message, is also missing.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Apple-centric blog&amp;nbsp;&lt;a data-link-tracking=”InArticle|Link” href=”https://www.macrumors.com/2020/11/13/iphone-12-missing-sms-text-messages/” target=”_blank” rel=”nofollow”&gt;MacRumours&lt;/a&gt;&amp;nbsp;started to report on this issue following the launch of the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro ranges back in October. However, it seems the issue isn’t linked to the new smartphones, but rather iOS 14. A number of people with older iPhone models have now started to complain about the same problem, suggesting that it’s linked to iOS 14 instead.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;A number of iPhone owners have flocked to social media to complain about the missing notification quirk.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;One user shared: “hey&amp;nbsp;@Apple&amp;nbsp;can you fix your damn software for the iphone? i’m BEYOND sick of not getting notifications when i get texts and missing important messages.”&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;“Anyone else’s iPhone not notifying of text messages? Ever since the latest iOS update, my phone isn’t giving me notification of a new text message and I keep missing messages as a result. It’s frustrating,” another Twitter user shared.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div readability=”40″&gt;&lt;p&gt;Not only that, but a post on the Apple Discussions forum about “iOS 14 text notification issues” now boasts 49 pages of replies form other iPhone owners experiencing the same issues.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Posting to this hefty forum thread, one Apple user states: “I am using iPhone 8 Plus with iOS 14.2. I don’t get notifications for WhatsApp calls and messages. For WhatsApp messages I at least get notified after some time but I am missing WhatsApp calls altogether. I checked all notification settings in my iPhone and WhatsApp and everything is correct. I did a complete fresh reset of the iPhone two times but still same issue.”&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div readability=”14.068965517241″&gt;&lt;div class=”text-description” readability=”49.945255474453″&gt;&lt;p&gt;Apple started to roll-out the latest version of iOS 14, &lt;a data-link-tracking=”InArticle|Link” href=”https://www.express.co.uk/life-style/science-technology/1372686/iOS-14-3-Release-Date-Download-iPhone-12-Pro-ProRAW-AirPods-Max-FitnessPlus” target=”_blank” rel=”tag”&gt;known as iOS 14.3&lt;/a&gt;, to iPhone owners this week. Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear to have fixed the missing notifications, according to early reports from those suffering the issue.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;Express.co.uk&lt;span&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;hasn’t run into these issues on iOS 14, so we weren’t able to determine whether iOS 14.3 has the fix.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;iOS 14.3 adds Fitness+, the latest subscription service from the Californian company, which offers pre-recorded fitness classes in a number of different disciplines, to your iPhone. Apple Watch owners will be able to see live statistics from their wearable beside the video. The latest version of iOS also brings support for the ProRAW format on iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max, which enables smartphones more freedom when editing images without losing quality.&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;&lt;a href=”https://blockads.fivefilters.org”&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/strong&gt; &lt;a href=”https://blockads.fivefilters.org/acceptable.html”&gt;(Why?)&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;</description>
