agrees deal with Five

March 12, 2010

Following in the steps of the other broadcasters, Five has announced the signing of a deal with the CBS owned and run on-demand TV service.

This will be’s first deal with a UK based broadcaster and should there be more deals in the pipeline with other broadcasters, will have the upper hand over other on-demand services such as Hulu, which is also looking to enter the UK and European on-demand market.

What the deal means is that will be able to offer its users content from Five’s on-demand service Demand Five, as well as around two hundred and fifty hours worth of archive material.

Five’s parent company is RTL which already has a great relationship with CBS as it buys a lot of content from them.
