Channel 5 was the first terrestrial broadcaster to offer a download service when it launched 5 Download in September 2006.
Relaunched as Demand 5 in July 2008, Channel 5’s video-on-demand service achieves over 10 million video streams a month.
The online, Smart TV and set-top box catch-up service provides viewers with access to a significant percentage of Channel 5's peaktime schedule, including Big Brother, and much of its hit acquired content, such as Dallas, CSI and Neighbours.
The offering is extended with a raft of original programming, including The Gadget Show, The Hotel Inspector and Paul Merton’s Adventures. An extensive archive of older Channel 5 programming is available to be streamed on the website, for free, at any time.
Channel 5 is working tirelessly with production companies and rights holders to expand the content offering of Channel 5, 5* and 5USA on the service.
Demand 5 is also available on YouTube, YouView, BT Vision, Xbox, Virgin Media, Sky Anytime+, YouView, and Samsung and Sony Bravia Smart TVs. You can also download the free Demand 5 app for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch from the Apple app store.
