Virgin Media has added to the appeal of its broadband bundles by signing a deal to provide Channel 5 content on its TV, online and mobile video on-demand platform.
When services launch later this month, the internet service provider (ISP) will become the first to offer catch-up TV content from all four terrestrial broadcasters.
Shows such as The Gadget Show and Fifth Gear will be available on the platform, plus popular US dramas including The Mentalist, Grey’s Anatomy and CSI: Miami.
And for fans of the soaps, Virgin Media will also allow its broadband bundle subscribers to watch recent episodes of Neighbours and Home and Away in HD.
Cindy Rose, Executive Director of Digital Entertainment at Virgin Media, said the ISP was delighted to add Demand Five to its TV on-demand service.
"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," she stated.
At present, the ISP's TV on-demand library contains over 4,600 hours of TV, film and music, including hundreds of hours in HD.
