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 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.

    I’ve not been able to get M5 on my laptop for over 2 months now and my queries and complaints have got me absolutely nowhere. I have been religiously watching Neighbours and Home and Away since they very first started (on BBC (only at lunchtime at first) & ITV) and have Never missed this many episodes. Thanks Channel 5…. Has anyone else had any luck with resloving this problem?

  • Bob Paul

    Trying to log onto My5 from my desktop but getting following messages :'”Service Error” – Content Unreachable Please Try Again Later’ when closed the following appears ‘”Startup Failed” – An Error Was Encountered During Startup’. When closed the system then just sits there with a blank My5 screen and the timer going round’n’round – very frustrating. Anybody have any ideas ????

    Demand 5 on xbox one hasn’t been working since thursday. It has not had the latest content uploaded to it. Now I am behind on my programs and have been unable to avoid spoilers for all this time. I am just going to remove it for good, nothing should take this long to fix

  • Princess Sofia Anna Hallow

    Exact same problem as um ! I thought it was my pc!!

  • UmUmUmUmUmUm

    Keep trying to watch test match cricket on catch up via the lap top. I get the adverts, (0f course), but then it just crashes, citing an error that is given various, for all I know meaningless code numbers. I click on their helpline but it’s useless. Just has a list of numbered “errors”, an apology, and says they’re “working on it”. I think they’re having a laugh!

  • Alex

    I just tried that and it hasn’t worked.. It’s exactly the same.

  • Emma Neill

    If you can play the ads OK, you need to just clear the cache on the app and reboot your device. Should work just fine and play the programmes after you do that.

  • R12LA 600

    Still a problem with this app
    All the adverts play perfectly but when it gets to a program it crashes.
    Total waste of time
    Get your system working before everyone boycotts your channel

    Was working fine at weekend on ps3 , but last 2-3 days is just black screen with white line across screen (2 thirds way up)

  • Tony Smart

    Why cannot I watch anything

  • Gary Angus

    Not working again get a grip

  • Adrian

    Would like to have watched Drain the Titanic but won’t bother now as My5 is not fit for purpose and should be pulled from Apps and Players menu on all TV box platforms until a proper fix.All comments on this thread have a common theme,buffering issues and error codes,a thousand TV boxes can’t be wrong so the common fault must be My5 servers/software.QED.Do get your act together its looking shoddy and unprofessional
