Demand 5 not working

Channel 5 has its own section called Demand 5, which is where users can watch videos offered by the channel in the UK. It is basically a catch-up service so you never need miss anything, but when the Demand 5 is down for whatever reason these can cause a massive impact on viewing.

Demand 5 not working

Demand 5 offers many TV Shows such as Big Brother, The Walking Dead, Neighbours, NCIS, Breaking Bad and so many more. But when Demand 5 is not working this could be down to Channel 5 servers, login problems and even apps not loading properly.

If Demand 5 doesn’t work for you then this community page is just for you, where you can vent your anger with your complaint. Please do remember this community is for all age groups so no swearing.

    What on earth is happening with Demand 5???? We are paying fir this service

  • Paul

    Just joine My5 and the first thing I want to watch wont play.Crap

  • tarquin

    This is the worst service ever! I honestly can’t remember the last time I was able to log on. All I get is a message “unable to contact server please try again.” Is this ever going to be available?

  • Sally Pegler

    Demand 5 not working at all tonight. Anyone know why?

  • Rocket

    Does any1 else internet cut off when watching Demand 5 on PS4??

  • Daybee

    still getting the ‘programme not available’ message and the ‘ok’ button says null….really bad service

  • Mony

    Started to watch castle last night having missed the 9pm show, after few minutes tried to rewind as I thought the programme didn’t start from the beginning, now it is stuck at that point. Have switched off the TV twice but every time I go back to the programme I am back at that same point of the programme and all I get is the symbol that goes round and round. I have to say that demand 5 is the only app I seem to have problems with. I see lot of dissatisfied viewers, I wonder if demand5 team really care about their sub standard product? Some sort of response from them would be nice.

  • eddie miller

    Over a year and all I get is the program you are trying to watch isn’t currently available. Please try again later.
    No I don’t think so.
    I’m finished using this crappie app time to take the rubbish out.
    Goodbye demand 5

  • eddie miller

  • BOOM!

    Tried to watch cbbots today and yesterday,as soon as it goes to play it just immediately starts continuously buffering. So annoying. Wasn’t sure if it was just on LG tvs but after reading comments seems to be a ongoing problem. First time I’ve had an issue with it unfortunately…

  • oi oi

    trying to catch up on celebrity bb episode 3 will not load when episodes 1 and 2 do anyone else get same issue?

  • Tina

    My5 online is the worst catchup channel I have ever known. You reset your password and all it does is buffer. You try and sign in with facebook enter your details and nothing. When is someone going to fix this extremely irritating site.

  • Steph

    Can’t even get the thing to load. Keeps saying error!

  • Natalie

    Awful app. Nothing’s loadingb

  • Sarah

    My5 app is rubbish! It’s the worst app I’ve ever used.

  • iAndroHacker

    my5 tv is always slow and stable for 1 year!

  • Steve

    Channel 5 dot com not working, I see this is a common problem. Tried to catch up with Wentworth, not working at all, just get that pesky wheel in the sky that keeps on turning, but no result.

  • Janet

  • cbb and bb

    i meant the ps4 app sorry.

  • cbb and bb

    whats the crack with the pas4 app? tryin to stream cbb and the ads stream fine, but the show keeps stopping as though its buffering. ive called my isp (virgin media) theyve changed my frequency and everything. im getting good speeds and everything else (bbc, 4od, gaming etc.) is running fine. so what the fudge is going on guys??

  • Bellolpop

    Sick of the screen going black all the time. Can’t wach CBB…. Same happened throughout BB! All the other TV Apps work fine (BBC, ITV, C4 etc). It’s always My5 that drives me nuts. Soooooo frustrating!

  • Paul Green

    Can’t find any Gotham? This is a complete nightmare.

  • neosalad

    the app wont load on my XBOX ONE! get error.
    i need to watch Wentworth as you changed the channel it is on from 5HD to 5* (not in HD!) and i have missed episodes 4 and 5 before i realised my TiVO hadnt recorded them .. as i tend to #bingewatch shows rather than watch eacjh week or “live” . tiVo’s catchup only has ep 6 , not 4&5
    lucky i knew something was wrong and it hadnt been recording them all!

  • Lina

    Demand 5 and My5 are rubbish. Videos don’t play. I keep getting ‘The programme you are trying to watch isn’t currently available. Please try again later.

    CA-4003’

  • Darcy

    Can’t believe how rubbish the app is. I’ll be half way through watching and there will suddenly be no picture, it very rarely reloads if I rewind so I have to start all over again. Makes it very difficult to catch up on programmes. Shouldn’t be happening in this day and age. And no, it’s nothing to do with my internet as I’ve tried it with 4G.

  • Dms

    Updates to programmes on demand 5 not consistent. Sometimes midnight, sometimes 24 hours.. Why? Cmon your a big channel now. Play big!

  • Aimee Russell

    Oh look after a few weeks a fault has occurred again!! X files ep17 plays ads fine then about a minute of the show then just exits to episode selection screen. The other week they kist mossed out episode 5 for no reason had to watch on my 5 which only works on my phones

  • Aimee Russell

    No this app is awful been using it like 6months seems cannot go a couple of weeks without problems. Sometimes so long episodes drop off!

  • Michelle Shakespeare

    BIG BROTHER STILL NOT UPDATING SINCE 14TH JULY DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW TO GET IT???

  • gerda

    not interested now even if uploaded today..end this dismal bb full of dull forgetable idiots and bring on the fabulous Celeb BB and make sure we can catch up next day at dawn!!

  • Natalie

    My5 hasn’t upload any of the big brother episodes so I can’t watch them. Every time I try and sync it with the internet it won’t work.
    Redownloaded the app constantly but won’t work.

  • Rose

    Yes no update on my5 since Thursday night – so rubbish. Just watched Friday’s episode on Daily Motion so try there for Saturday’s.

  • Rose

    Thanks just watched it on daily motion although it cut off the end of the eviction interview but on a plus side there were no adverts!!

  • Reeya Khan

    Wanting to watch Saturday’s BB . Anyone else having this problem

  • Marianne

  • Samantha McGaw

    Go on daily motion webside, type in big brother uk series 17 episode 39 live eviction and it is on there. Just found it myself after waitjng all day to watch it x

  • Samantha McGaw

    EVERYONE! Go on DAILYMOTION website, type in “Brother UK 2016 Series 17 Episode 39 Live Eviction” to search bar and Fridays show is there :) :) Ridiculous another site can manage it but not Channel 5!

  • Samantha McGaw

    Been trying to watch Fridays big brother all day and STILL not on demand!! No other channel seems to have this issue. Really does my head in!

  • Michelle Shakespeare

    Big brother catch up not updating ???? Still stuck on the 14th july

  • Akinbiyi Babarinde

    ALSO YOU GUYS NEED TO STOP PUTTING SPOILERS ON YOUR THUMBNAILS!! if you want people to take your stuff seriously, your service has to be a1 and thats on everything, like damn on an eviction episode, don’t have the person who has been evicted on the thumbnail with a sad face, thats just stupid dude. [ this happens when you go on my5 from the big brother link ]

  • Akinbiyi Babarinde

    fix my5 mannn, so annoying like bro!!!! im tryna watch big brother after work, but ITS NEVER UPLOADED LIKE FIX IT GUYS, why can i click on episode july 15th and the ya’ll pop up with a 404 screen

  • Cate

    Its not working in West Midlands either … I knew who was evicted before I got chance to catch up … it is so annoying and keeps happening :/

  • Hi

    Big brother airs at 9 and x files airs at 10, yet x files is on demand hours before bb?

  • Nikki

    Trying to watch big brother, 10/7/2016 (sunday nights) says on website it is on my5 but isnt! Might aswell delete the app its useless

  • Kate

    Its on there now, thanks!

  • Kate

    Please put Big Brothers last 2 episodes on (Fridays live eviction and yesterday). Thanks!

  • Emily

    Not able to catchup with big brother for the past 2 days and wont be able to watch it tonight either, should have been sorted out by now.

  • Emma

    This is ridiculous it’s been 2 days sort it out. I haven’t been able to vote for Friday’s live eviction. Sort it out please…

  • Jude Bevan

    Still not up on My 5. Useless

  • Jodie

    No point having demand 5 if you can’t put the shows on there for the people who couldn’t view it when it was showing! Two episodes of big brother still not on there it’s a joke!

  • Kirst

    Still down its been 2 days now sort it out

  • Lou

    Come on guys now Friday nights live eviction nor Saturday nights episode are showing!! Second time this season we are having to wait!

  • Emma

    Big brother episode 33 live eviction isn’t showing but it’s showing on the site I’m very annoyed by this

  • Bruh

    It doesn’t have Friday’s show, but has bit on the side which is on straight after it, makes sense

  • Weaf

    I am very angry about this also

  • Weaf

    Ridiculous. Can no longer watch tonight’s bug brother due to the fact that I could not catch up on Fridays live eviction. Not happy

  • Swimfish

    Why is episode 33 of Big Brother not on Demand5 today?

  • Lynette

    I can’t even watch it on the normal my5 site. Getting annoyed with this now.

  • Bruh

    Friday’s episode of big brother isn’t on the ps4 version but is on the normal demand site, wtf Is that about?

  • Lynette

    This is getting so frustrating. What’s the reason demand 5 is down again. It’s not good enough.

  • smithy

    Whenever I attempt to watch anything on demand 5 it has an issue. How come other playback sites (iPlayer/4OD/ITV) can get it right and 5 can never seem to get with the times. So incredibly frustrating.

  • Neil Steadman

    I have samsung smart tv have got a picture but no sound anyone else with similar problem. BBC iplayer not working either

  • Again!

    Rookie Blue not working why??

  • Nicole

    Why isn’t home and away not working

  • Aimee Russell

  • Rose

  • Rose

    LAST NIGHT’S BIG BROTHER IS NOW AVAILABLE. REJOICE

  • Rose

    The latest episode of Home And Away is also missing MUCH TO MY DISMAY

  • Rose

    My 5 appears to be (partially) working again. Thursday’s episode of Big Brother has not yet been uploaded, though.

  • Micky Byrne

  • Tracy Heather Lobban

    same here.

  • Tracy Heather Lobban

    Exactly the same as my BT this morning. Urgh, so annoying.

  • Tracy Heather Lobban

    I feel your pain… Me too!

  • Tracy Heather Lobban

    I rely on it to watch Big Brother catch up every morning before work. Typical.

  • Bellolpop

    Right that’s it! I have officially fallen into deep BB withdrawal syndrome. Fix it nowwwwww! Please. Thank you.

  • Rose

    I wonder what the incident at their hosting provider’s data centre was? How difficult will it be to repair?

  • Elizabeth Iley

    Demand 5 has absolutely no shows on it whatsoever and my 5 won’t let you watch Wednesday’s episode of bb…. Thought it would have been fixed by now.

  • Rose

    ☺︎ Don’t worry everyone. You won’t miss a thing. All your episodes will still be there. They won’t start taking down episodes any time soon since My5 isn’t working and if nobody can use their services to catch up they can’t collect ad revenue. They will keep everything up until the problem is fixed. ☺︎

  • Rose

    Hurry up! I need to catch up on Big Brother, Home and Away and Sing It On. I’m begging you. Please fix it!

  • Mercades Taylor

    I want to watch bb hurry up

  • Louise Hawksley

    Ahhhh I wanna catch up with bb fgs hurry up

  • Mishal

    Hurry up i need to watch BB, how long does it take!?

  • Hello

    I’m having BB withdrawal symptoms, come on My 5! Get it fixed please!

  • Alps

    lame. they need to employ technicians that know what they are doing as this has been going on far too long. lame I say

  • Laura

    I think the “technicians” have probably given up and gone to sleep

  • Laura

    my5 just keeps showing the loading sign and nothing else. so annoying im desperate to watch BB, if this isnt fixed by tomorrow I wont be watching anymore episodes on tv as I will have to catch up on what I missed. Hurry up channel 5

  • HAYL

    still not working arghhh

  • Zoe

    Let’s rephrase. Everything else is working for me to. But my5!

  • Zoe

    Same, everything else is working by my5!

  • Konfuziongirrrl

    I really wanted to watch shock docks and 100% hotter. I tried so many times today to delete and download the app again and again but for some reason it’s not loading especially the the whole front page. It’s odd how itv hub, 4od and BBC iplayer is working but not my5. So to whoever in charge of my5 app. Please help and get it up and running as myself and everyone using my5 want to watch our favourite shows on there? Thank you.

  • Zoheen

    How long does it really take for a bunch of technicians to complete and fix this never ending problem once and for all. My 5 you have lost a lot of viewers and if this isn’t sorted asap you wil have none at all!!!!!!!!

  • Joe

    This is pretty terrible My5 has been down for 7 hours now. Still hasn’t been fixed, what the hell has happened? They need to do some moving around and stuff I think to better their site. I think I’m gonna give up for tonight. Doesn’t look likely it’s gonna be back up anytime soon.

  • Jane Melvin

    Still not working ….

  • Dug Coutts

    Dreadful service

  • Rose

    They posted this ‘important notice’ on their website recently:

    “Due to an incident at one of our hosting provider’s data centres, we are experiencing an on-going live outage of many of our live services.

    This is affecting:

    • Playback on any platform
    • My5 website and mobile apps not loading
    • Demand 5 apps on TVs, games consoles and set-top boxes – the app loads but all playback fails
    • Big Brother website is down
    • Milkshake website is down

    We are working with our technical service providers to restore services as quickly as possible. Please accept our apologies for this loss of service.”

  • Rose

    5 On Demand (or My5) website isn’t working for me. Thought it was an issue with my internet connection at first but did not have any problems with other websites. Just My5. I reset my router three times just in case. This is definitely an issue with their service. Glad I’m not the only one having trouble! Really wanted to catch up on tonight’s Big Brother and Home And Away! SORT IT OUT.

  • Phil

    Aye still down as of 3 minutes ago. “Alert unable to contact server please try again” nothing happens when Ok button is pushed. Rubbish channel most of the time anyway. Too much reality bull. I’m using Roku 3 on Samsung smart tv. Good luck. Cheers.

  • Raul D Horsey

    BT TV – Tried Milkshake at 7pm, said would not connect to server, same with Demand 5. All other on demand players work fine. BT Sport channels (guide numbers 408, 409, 410 are also not working). Is this muticast fault? Do BT provide channel 5’s signal? (I have BT broadband all working ok)

  • Aimee Russell

    24 days it has worked most of the time since my last post lol. 2 days ago x files last episode wasn’t on then it was but today as said black screen! I havee come to the concussion it is when they load new adverts the problem always starts. Surely testing before launching new ads to then discover the fault is a simple notion?! Yes cheek of their websites always has errors ending in our internet is at fault never their service! All other free on demand i never have issues just this. Hope it doesn’t drag on for a week like last time!

  • Erssie Major

    My5 app been down since yesterday, late June 22nd to present.

  • Sam

    Not working on smart tv, iPad or firestick? Rubbish.

  • Ben Smith

    Just a black screen for me. Ps4

  • Puri Pes

    Yes it doesn’t work… Unable to contact
    server apparently..

  • Elizabeth Iley

    Anyone know why it’s not working all I get is ” something went wrong :(
    There was a problem contacting channel 5. Please check your internet connection”

  • Bundenburg

    Balls to you, Demand 5. The one bit of trash i get to watch, but nooooooo. Youre not working. BOOOOOOOOOO

  • Bundenburg

    same!

  • Habibi251270

    Not working on smart tv or iPad keeps say an error has occurred ?

  • K Bayes

    Not working on PS4, just getting a blank black screen. Tried deleting & reinstalling the app but the same thing happens. This app has worked only once in the last month I’ve tried to use it…

  • Mark Walker

    Tried watching Big brother… Indefinite loading, or just sound playing. Terrible.

  • Andy Parsons

    I cannot watch last Mondays Gotham tried and tried but nothing happens, if I go to the previous episode I can watch that 1 but don’t need to because ive seen it, so please let me know why I can’t everything else on demand works on my ps3

  • Graham

    Demand 5 has seemed to have stopped working on my Samsung smart TV and Samsung blue ray player both worked fine until recently. Has a software update killed it? Both bought because of their smart ability for catch up. No problem with iPlayer or the others just Demand 5. Also cannot find an app to play it on my ipad for some reason. Just about works still on lg smart TV. Has something changed recently – very frustrating and poor service. Any advice appreciated.

  • Kieran

    Demand 5 is a shockingly bad service! I can never seem to be able to stream any catch-up episodes of Gotham both on PlayStation and Lg TV. On 5’s website it says the problems must be due to my Internet connection however I can stream Amazon, Netflix, Now TV, BBC I player, ITV etc etc instantly with no problems whatsoever. This is really F*****g frustrating as Gotham is a brilliant show I would really like to catch up with. Channel 5 sort it out! Aaaaaaaaaggggggg

  • Fred

    The newest episodes of a show i am watching isn’t showing up on the app on my tv.. Seems as though the most up to date one is 2nd june, but I know they’ve been on live!

  • Rick Elmer

    I’ve not been able to get Demand 5,and I had this AMAZON Box Since December 2015

  • Bea

    It was working on Sunday 5th Jun in the morning, but not in the afternoon. Specifically I want to watch NCIS ep16. All other episodes are fine, but when I try to play this one it only goes to the ads and then stop and back to the main screen. mlMy partner had watched it on Sunday morning with no issues whatsoever. I’m trying through YouView and Demand 5 app on Android

  • Jessina Lorraine Joseph

    Same here I have an LG Smart TV – sometimes it works and other times it doesnt.

  • Jessina Lorraine Joseph

    Demand 5 defo is not working. I thought it was my internet at first so spent ages on the phone to Sky. Not good at all. When will it be fixed. Would be helpful if a fault message showed up informing us that there is a fault as then I wouldnt have spent ages on the phone to Sky.

  • Aimee Russell

    Back on Tuesday with breaking up ads was out yesterday so another episode lost and today it plays ads then does nothing so another episode will drop off. Such a joke ch4 have ads and have rare or no issues.

  • Aimee Russell

    7days now! One show did play yesterday but not the show i wanted so not helpful. Tomorrow shows will slide off. This is not 5s page so is there any use posting here? Reported to demand 5 last time and no response so haven’t bothered yet!

  • Kirsty Bagshaw

    I can’t watch anything on demand 5 on my PS3 I have tried it every day for the past 5 days and still can’t play anything does anyone no what’s happening with this

  • Amy Robinson

    Nope!

  • Dave m

    Dibs to your technical team Demand 5. What a total shambles. Just who is in your technical team and where’s the qa team that should be taking up these issues. It’s embarassing as this is a regular scenario with demand 5 now.

  • NotHappyWithCh5

    Is it working for you now Amy?

  • NotHappyWithCh5

    Still not working on ps3! Its been a week now and by time u fix it the episodes won’t be available any more!! As its your fault, programmes should be made available for an extra week or so.

  • marteeni

  • Angela ward

    Not working on my tablet, why!?

  • K Bayes

    Not working on PS4 all weekend

  • Aimee Russell

    Is it a show with adverts? I tried on my ps4 and ps3 no joy almost a week now!

  • Aimee Russell

    Exactly now i have a week of x files to watch as i cannot watch it live durning the week as i have to get up at silly o clock. Interesting it’s the adverts then.

    As Aimee Russell posted, the days are counting down before they take episodes off! This repeat problem drives me madder than mad Jack McMad and it applies to any show that has adverts at the start of it, so it is definitely an issue with advert buffering. Watch a show that immediatley begins without adverts, like a film, and also doesn’t have adverts throughout it, and hey presto you can watch it without issues. If they don’t sort this out soon I’ll have to start watching my fave shows live and in this day and age that just isn’t good enough which is why we have On Demand services, aargh !

  • Aimee Russell

    Is like pot luck if it works or not isn’t it!? It sounds very much like how things are just before a company goes bust as no answer to my enquiry still from the last time it was not working! It made me laugh that all their toruble shooter solutions are always down to users internet never the fact their app doesnt work and our internet is fine! Think it has been down since Tuesday now and days are counting down before they take episodes off!

  • Amy Robinson

    Not working on ps3 for 3 days now.

  • Gerard Mc Millan

    not working on LG tv, totally useless please sort it out

  • Mark

    Not working from fire stick since yesterday :-(

  • Ashai Fawkes

    Demand 5 : Certain programmes like 10,000 BC:Two Tribes do not show on PS3. I continue to watch the spinny circle loading sign in top right corner and a blank screen. My internet connection is good and other programmes work. Sort it out Sony/Demand 5.

  • JC

    It was working earlier today, but now is no longer running on my Amazon Fire HD box.
    I select a show to watch and it’s just displays a black screen with a buffering circle in the top right corner.
    I’ve uninstalled and re downloaded the app twice, but it’s still not working!

  • Jaemac

    Demand 5 won’t accept my password and when I try to change it just get a message saying ‘something’s not working. Try again later.’

  • Gillian Kilroy

    why does it demand a password. . The other channels dont and it wont accept one when i try to enter one and says IMhave tomp reset, and when I go back to,do that says ‘try again later’. What,is their problem?

  • Kharriin Stilletto

    If I try to view something with a G (Guidance) rating It just asks to confirm age over and over.Other content without a G rating just does not work.6pm Wed 27th April

  • Ross

    Demand 5 not working on BT YouView box.

  • Christine Moeller

    Doesn’t work at all on my mac. I’ve checked on their website, and my computer fits every single one of their requirements. The problem is with the site, not my mac. Really annoying.

  • Red Skeleton

    It’s down. It’s down right now. I am insane with anger. Argh.

  • Raymond Clements

    What a poor service! I have a great connection speed with Virgin Media of 50Mbps which is more than ample. I have a ROKU 2 as well. Channel 5 need to get their act together. I am vert tired of buffering and time-out issues and programmes which are listed but when you click on them the channel kicks you off to the main Roku front screen.Raymond Clements

  • Raymond Clements

    I have had the same problem over and over again. What a poor service! I have a great connection speed with Virgin Media of 50Mbps which is more than ample. I have a ROKU 2 as well. Channel 5 need to get their act together. Raymond Clements

  • Jai King

    I own a Roku 2 and the Demand 5 app is constantly buffering.At first i thought it might be my internet connection but all my other apps are working fine.This problem started a couple of weeks ago.

  • zordana9

    Has never worked on PC for me…what is going on with this channel?
    It has always been the worst for TV…other channels don’t have this problem so why do they and why do they never answer you or fix it?

  • Owen

    Stopped working on LG smart TV months ago. Still not fixed.

  • Chris More

    Not working on PS3 & Amazon.
    Keep getting buffering wheel of death on most shows

  • Tony Maynard

    Will not work on LG smart TV, will sometimes play adverts then just go to the buffering icon in corner of screen, been down for about 4 days now.

  • Kathleen Innes

    Won’t work on our smart TV. Constant problems with it, the app is terrible. Even if it does eventually play, it still buffers. Thought it was a problem with our internet but realised the only app on our LG TV that we constantly have problems with is Demand 5. I really want to watch Neighbours!!

  • http://Www.sandrasark.blogspot.co.uk/ Sandra Black

    Can’t get any of the programmes to play on my iPad app

  • Chris C

    My wife uses it on an Amazon Firestick and it is utterly useless. To prove it was the app I downloaded it to my phone only to be asked to sign in/register via some vile social media junk like TwitBook (or other such tripe, the last bastion of the friendless masses)! Why? Channel 5 should be paying me to watch their purile garbage a’la Home & Away and the like…alas that’s the rubbish that my wife likes but now she can’t because the My5 app is cheese! Channel 5, take a leaf out of the BBC iPlayer app. Works a treat!

  • Swampy

    My demand 5 on PS3 also not working, but only on those programmes where there are adverts. You are lucky if one plays, then it freezes. Rebooting or reinstalling doesn’t work either. Any suggestions, or how to get Channel 5 techies to do their updates.

  • squeak

    my channel 5 demand has not worked for 3 days on my ps3 has anyone els had the same problem

  • Micky Evans

    MY5 is crap, one minute its working and its not, its pony…

  • Mac

  • Connive mills

  • Michael

    demand 5 app is rubbish

  • Parkmeister

    I can get on the site with my Roku stick tonight. However, getting nowhere trying to stream the X-Files. Worked perfectly last night and no such problems with the other apps.

  • ralph winslade

    Can’t watch anything through the app on my XB1. Was working Friday/Saturday but has been ” currently unavailable” [535c] since Sunday. Have they withdrawn support for XB1?

  • Faith Simpson

    Can’t get X-files on catch up tonight.

  • osifjd

    Worked yesterday. Today, everything is “The programme you are trying to watch isn’t currently available. Please try again later.

    CA-3000”

    on every device.

  • DMS

    Demand 5 will not open on my Samsung TV. Comes up with an error message.

  • stewartatkins

    Can’t access x files on C5 or demand 5

  • Lady filosopher

    not user-friendly in the slightest.

  • Lady filosopher

    Sunday Feb 14 and new Heroes episodes, end up running only 7 min. long. I cannot access the full 45 mins episodes. In comparison, I can access the full Suspects episode of 45mins. What is wrong? I cannot get any info on the FAQs, nor does there seem to be an email to contact channel 5

  • tokairic

    Watched programmes on 5od last night but now the website has changed we can’t open any of the episodes. We can see the website and see the episode list but can watch nothing – typical 5od chaos and poor service.

  • Connive mills

    My 5 on demand on my Now TV player is not working. Since 3:30am, it says content unavailable please try later.

  • Rossanna

    Last 2 days all i get is content cannot be played please try again

  • alan

  • Jenny

    Is it down atm

  • Eddie Karsten

    I just purchased an LG Smart TV and just getting to grips with the various apps etc. I’m having the exact same problem as “Angie” The program plays behind the notice even though its saying program not available ,then when I click the ok to turn off the notice and you`re back to the menu page. Any one else having this? Is there an update available for the App.
    Will try and access it over the internet browser for now.

  • Angie

    not working on LG smart TV – still. It attempts to play the video but after the dotted circle spins 8 or 9 times, the screen goes grey then black then starts this again, for around 5 times. Then a message appears to say the programme isn’t available right now in a large box in the middle of the screen, yet it starts playing the video. You can’t get rid of the screen message without returning to the previous screen. It’s frustrating.

  • Boydiee Bee

    is anybody else having problems with Demand5 or is it just me?

  • No ta

    Demand 5 is a Joke in M9 Blackley Manchester for months now it will not work on Roku or NowTV. Have emailed Demand 5 several times with all details and it still will not work but will work from Windows 10 or on a Android 4.4 cubetalk 7 c8 on the same internet that refuses to work on Roku or NowTv . All I get on Roku or NowTV is cannot contact server! Demand 5 service and support are a farce, all other demand TV services work..

  • Anthony Simmons

    Cannot get demand 5 to work, if I’m lucky then I get adverts then the circle of doom. Currently I can’t even get the adverts. Strange that iplayer and all4 work fine. And that’s on both ps3 and LG smart TV.

  • Tisha

    Not really fun sitting here to try and get Demand 5 working, streaming is a complete and utter nightmare.

  • Karen

    There is no Demand in Demand 5, how can this be so when i demand something from a service like PLAY a TV show and it will NOT.

  • Jake

    Demand 5 website is all working fine, navigation is perfect. But what is not perfect is the fact when i try to play something it doesn’t do anything other than show a blank screen.

  • tan

    What’s up with 5 today

  • Tony

    Is there any chance we will now if the Samsung TV smartphone app will be fixed.

  • Sarah

    The demand 5 app is terrible, not able to even start the app it keeps freezing. Has the app discontinued or something? Confused.

  • John-Paul

    No matter what I try to watch it is very slow for me, i have very fast internet so that is not the problem. Any other ideas?
