Virgin Media has signed 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.
The new deal will see Five's home grown shows such as The Gadget Show and Fifth Gear as well as US dramas including The Mentalist, Grey's Anatomy and CSI: Miami becoming available on Virgin Media. Virgin Media customers will also be able to watch soaps Home and Away and Neighbours, both in HD.

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."
