"Demand Five" (UK Television's Channel 5 Catch-up service)

14 Replies 5,901 Views Created 03-09-2009

With BBCs iPlayer having an 'app/link' on the xmb under 'TV', will we soon see Channel 5's "Demand Five" service too?

 

The video format used by Five seems already compatible with the PS3. Check it out here;

It would appear it just needs a ps3 dedicated page.

Absoltely ages till 2012. As thats all people with out digital still watch. People with digital wont be watching FIVE...they will be watching five US or fiver. Adverts don't bring in as much funding as a Forced TAX and Product placements do for the BBC...

Give people the choice not to pay for BBC and not watch it, it would be as bad of as ITVs funding is.

While I generally agree with your point about the BBC's 'taxation', I wanted to point out that the BBC and in fact no British broadcaster receives any funds directly from product placement. I personally believe there is a serious case for allowing selected product placement (with proper regulation) but at the moment it is not allowed in the UK. What's ridiculous is that we view loads of US TV and films that have product placement in anyway!

 

Back to the point of the thread, I should think it is possible to get links to all the major on-demand TV services on the XMB eventually. If/when Sony will get round to this is another question!

 

I believe we are getting the much anticipated paid for on-demand films and TV programmes in October - it will be interesting to see if SCEE tie any of the free-to-air on-demand services in with this.

Not up To Sony 

ITV, CH4, BBC already did it...Nothing there to stop CH5, Only CH5 is stopping the CH5 content from being there...On XMB

Figured people would like to know, that tonight between the news and Mission Afghanistan on Ch5 and then in the break after Mission Afghanistan there were Demand5 ads... Both of which flashed the S.E.N logo when briefly flashing logos of how you can currently access D5.

Thought i'd share my spot =]
