Virgin Media has confirmed a multiscreen deal with Channel 5 to bring programming from all of Five’s linear TV channels to its TV, online and mobile video on demand platforms from November.

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.”
