My5 will be rolled out across all iOS and Android phones and tablets, and on a new website, My5.tv. the service will eplace Demand 5 across smart TVs, set-top boxes, games consoles and other platforms in the coming months.

My5 will offer Channel 5’s catch-up content including Celebrity Big Brother, The Yorkshire Vet, Gotham and Lip Sync Battle UK. However, the line-up will be bolstered by My5 exclusives, including Heroes Reborn: Dark Matters, a prequel to the new series coming to 5Star on February 16.

“Consumers increasingly expect a much more televisual and immersive experience from on-demand services. We’ve designed My5 to enable viewers to focus on finding and watching great programmes and nothing else,” said James Tatam, director of digital media and commercial development for Channel 5.
