Sky And Channel 5 Announce New Content Partnership

News Image
Sky and Viacom-owned Channel 5 have have announced a new content partnership to bring a range of entertainment and factual box-sets to Sky Box Sets and the NOW TV Entertainment Pass. Customers will be able to binge on 300 hours of their favourite Channel 5 shows.

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. This additional content joins Viacom’s already large catalogue of UK originations available to Sky and Now TV customers, including MTV’s Geordie Shore and Comedy Central's Drunk History UK and Your Face or Mine.

The titles are available for Sky customers right now and will be available on NOW TV in the coming weeks. They will sit alongside Sky’s extensive library of original productions including Emmy award-winning Chernobyl, Catherine the Great and hit comedy Brassic. Earlier this year, Sky committed to more than double its investment in original drama and comedy over the next five years through Sky Studios.
