The arrangement will see 300 hours of C5 shows becoming available to subscribers, with content accessible via the Sky Box Sets service and to those holding an entertainment pass for Sky’s OTT service Now TV.
The box-sets include royal documentaries such as Meghan And Harry: In their Own Wordsand Inside Kensington Palace, as well as C5 documentaries GPs Behind Closed Doorand Paddington Station 24/7.
Viacom series such as MTV’s Geordie Shoreand Comedy Central’s Drunk History UKare already available via Sky.
Ben Frow, director of programmes at Viacom International Media Networks UK, said: “At Channel 5 we invest heavily in first-rate British content and this distribution partnership adds to the ways that viewers can access a range of our best programmes on-demand, and also boosts the breadth of Viacom content available to Sky and Now TV customers.”
Sky expanded its content deal with fellow UK broadcaster Channel 4 in Septemberand agreed a similar arrangement with the BBC in November.
Do you wonder if the set-top box will still be the industry's workhorse despite the shift to app-based experiences… twitter.com/i/web/status/1…
