Welcome to Channel 5 media. The purpose of this site is to act as an information resource for the public, as well as the advertising community.


Over 54 million UK viewers, across all platforms, are capable of receiving Channel 5's transmissions. And within any given week, well over 32m of them choose to do precisely that.


5USA and 5* join Channel 5 in being available on satellite, cable and the fastest-growing platform of all, Freeview. We have also launched our 5USA+1 and 5*+1 channels on satellite and cable. Over the course of 2008 Channel 5's on-line offering emerged from a period of change to include our Video on Demand site – Demand 5 - as well as brand websites The Gadget Show and Milkshake!


All broadcasters must adapt to the impact of new technology and Channel 5 is at the forefront of such developments.  We offer a range of methods to communicate with potential customers via traditional spot advertising, broadcast sponsorship, Video on demand, On-line and live events such as Milkshake Live and Gadget Show Live.
