Channel 5 kills Demand 5 forever – say hello to My5

Rebrands are all the rage right now, so this latest marketing shake-up is no surprise.

Channel 5 has killed off its Demand 5 catch-up TV branding for good.

Taking its place is My5, the channel’s new on-demand service that rolls out today.

My5 is now available on a number of platforms, including iOS and Android, as well as on desktop via my5.tv. A new logo for the service has also been introduced.

The new branding will also replace Demand 5 on smart TVs, consoles, and set-top boxes this year.

Check out the My5 launch video below:

“Consumers increasingly expect a much more televisual and immersive experience from on-demand services,” says James Tatam, Director of Digital Media & Commercial Development for Channel 5.

Tatam continues: “We’ve designed My5 to enable viewers to focus on finding and watching great programmes and nothing else.”

The revamp also introduces a number of new features to Channel 5’s catch-up service, including a ‘favourite’ option for TV shows, a log of what you’ve already watched, and an option to pause your show on one device and continue playing on another.
