Virgin Media is to add content from all of FIVE’s linear TV channels to its on demand service with the addition of Demand Five at no additional cost to subscribers. The cable company says the addition makes it “the only” TV provider offering catch-up services from all four main terrestrial broadcasters.
Cindy Rose, executive director of digital entertainment at Virgin Media said: “We’re delighted to add Demand Five to our pioneering TV On Demand service and to complete our offering of terrestrial TV catch-up services.
“With a high calibre of shows including quality US drama, popular Australian soaps and entertaining and informative home grown programmes with many in HD, Demand Five has something for everyone.”
Jonathan Lewis, Head of Digital Media at Channel 5 said the broadcaster was “really pleased to be able to offer Demand Five through Virgin Media, giving even more consumers the opportunity to watch a selection of our great shows, at a time convenient to them whilst still being able to enjoy the high quality of a full TV experience.”
