"Today's announcement builds on My5's position as the most widely distributed commercial broadcaster VOD service in the UK," said James Tatam, director of digital media and commercial development for Channel 5. "Chromecast is a fantastic device and by utilising this technology to broaden out My5's reach and availability, we're giving our viewers even more choice and flexibility when it comes to their favourite content."

Users will be delighted with the addition of My5 to the broad list of services already available on Chromecast."

Over the last year, Channel 5 has increased the use of its on-demand content by 25 per cent.
