Smart TV just got a little smarter with Demand 5 heading to the Samsung Smart TV platform. Demand 5 is Channel 5’s take on TV on Demand. It joins other entertainment portals available on Samsung Smart TVs such as Netflix, LOVEFiLM, Spotify, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter. It would be nice if all these media companies could get together to consolidate content as it makes the overall streaming media proposition great but it’s a step in the right direct.

Channel 5 has come a long way from its Shannon Tweed and Red Shoe Diary days and now has Celebrity Big Brother, The Gadget Show, Home and Away, Neighbours, Benidorm ER plus shows from the award winning Milkshake! children’s strand.

The Demand 5 Player App will be available on all 2011 and 2012 Samsung Smart TV models.
