Five on demand, on Youtube

In a move that closely follows Channel 4’s 4oD service being added to the Youtube streaming site, Channel Five has now agreed a deal with Youtube to put its content on the popular streaming site too.

This will bring hours of Five’s programs to the site, but as yet, not everything. Rights for some US series’ are still being discussed.

The content will be uploaded to the Youtube service shortly after it has finished airing, Five has also announced it plans to support this service by selling advertising space on it.
