STV Glasgow and STV Edinburgh will air a range of popular children's programmes made by STV from 7am each week day morning and 9am at weekends. These include Meeow, Butterfingers, Uncle Dad and Harry and the Wrinklies.

Weekends will feature Scottish Parliament This Week.

In the first month on air, STV Glasgow and STV Edinburgh reached a combined monthly audience of over one million viewers with a mix of news, innovative formats and classic dramas from the STV archive.

Bobby Hain, director of channels at STV, said: "City TV is a long term commitment for STV and the enhanced schedules that will be launched in early March support our strategy to deliver relevant content to consumers across Scotland.

"Both city TV channels have delivered in line with expectations since launch and the extended hours and enhanced news offering allows us to align the schedules on both channels so we offer the best possible service for our audiences."
