Viacom’s Channel 5 Adds PBS, A+E Content To Expanded My5 Streaming Service

With Netflix and Amazon gaining ground, the U.K.’s incumbent broadcasters, including the newest of the traditional players, Channel 5, are bolstering their streaming services. Channel 5 has bulked up My5 and Channel 4 is also adding third-party content to its service, recently striking a 900-hour deal for Vice programming. The changes effectively change the streaming offerings from catch-up services to platforms, with content from different suppliers. – Stewart Clarke , Variety https://ift.tt/2lURK5Y
