Demand 5 is a free service that puts all the latest programmes broadcast on Channel 5, 5USA and 5* at your fingertips — from Celebrity Big Brother to The Hotel Inspector, from Home And Away to The Dog Rescuers, from Milkshake!, Channel 5’s award-winning strand for pre-school children, to brand new US series Gotham. Demand 5 also offers an archive of classic shows and movies.
The launch of Demand 5 for EE TV continues the broadcaster’s strategy of enabling viewers to watch their favourite Channel 5 shows whenever and wherever they want. Demand 5 is available on all major mobile phones, tablets, games consoles, smart TVs and set-top boxes — more devices than any other commercial broadcaster in the UK.
James Tatam, Digital Media Director for Channel 5, said: “I’m delighted Demand 5 is joining EE TV from launch. EE has created a TV experience that blends broadcast and on-demand viewing very elegantly and we’re thrilled to be part of it from the outset.”
Sylvain Thevenot, Director of TV, EE said: “As the UK’s biggest and fastest network, with more than 25 million customers, we have unrivalled insight into people’s changing viewing habits. It’s helped us create a service that has mobile at its heart, and makes the TV experience more personal than ever before. We’re delighted to be able to offer a wealth of great content via Demand 5 from launch.”
