Five agrees deal with Party Gaming

Channel 5 and PartyGaming (PRTY – have announced a deal to create a new bingo and casino service.

Scheduled to launch in the next 6 months, this new service will come under Five’s branding but be run and managed by PartyGaming.

Will this channel join Five’s other 3 on Freeview, will it be a Sky / Cable only channel or will this join Five’s online presence, including Demand Five and FiveFwd. Will this just end up being another annoying channel to clutter up the airwaves? Personally, I’m not a fan of ‘gaming’ type channels or the shopping ones, a waste of bandwidth if you ask me.
