A new content partnership between Sky and Viacom-owned Channel 5 will bring a range of entertainment and factual box-sets to Sky Box Sets and the NOW TV Entertainment Pass.
Around 300 hours of Channel 5 content is being released.
The box-sets include British Royal documentaries such as Meghan and Harry: In their Own Words and Inside Kensington Palace, as well popular Channel 5 documentaries GPs Behind Closed Door and Paddington Station 24/7.
Stephen van Rooyen, Chief Executive Officer, Sky UK and Ireland, said “This partnership is another brilliant example of how collaboration between UK broadcasters means our customers get even more great, British content alongside award-winning shows from across the Atlantic, further establishing Sky and NOW TV’s reputation as the home of the best content, all in one place.”
This additional content joins Viacom’s already large catalogue of UK originated content available to Sky and Now TV customers.
Ben Frow, Director of Programmes, Viacom International Media Networks UK, adds “At Channel 5 we invest heavily in first-rate British content and this distribution partnership adds to the ways that viewers can access a range of our best programmes on-demand, and also boosts the breadth of Viacom content available to Sky and Now TV customers.”
The titles are already available to Sky customers and will be added to Now TV in the next few weeks.
