Five has launched its video on demand service, Five Download, allowing fans of CSI to exclusively download new episodes of the current series of CSI: Miami a full week before their UK transmission. The service also offers exclusive legitimate online access to the most recent series of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation; CSI: NY and CSI: Miami, with ultimately the entire CSI back catalogue becoming available.


Video On Demand Launch For Five

Date: 16/10/06

Broadband distribution has now matured to such a level in the UK that broadcasters can offer their viewers the opportunity to access premium content through an online distribution channel.

It’s very exciting that we’ve been able to help Five launch their first VOD service by offering UK viewers the chance to purchase online their favourite American series. Five Download is a compelling proposition that will meet and exceed customer expectations. The service launch puts Five at the forefront of new media innovation.

The state-of-the-art website was developed in partnership with BT Media & Broadcast, Entriq and Agency.com.

Entriq provided the pay media solution to manage, protect, and monetise the CSI content.

Long Dog provided project management support to Entriq, helping to successfully deliver the project against aggressive timescales.
