“Great Childrens Channels”

Written on: 10/12/2012 by poppylife (5 reviews written)

Channel 5 are by far a great provider of Childrens programmes. My children always rush to the Television in the morning, so that they can tune into Milkshake, the dedicated Childrens channel. Although the BBC do offer CBBC, our favourite is still Channel 5, which is a credit to the tv channel, who to be fair are a lot smaller than the BBC. I really cant recommend Channel 5 enough, they really are a great provider of Childrens programmes, from Noddy to Roary the racing car. It isnt just me… Read Full Review

“The home of crime”

Written on: 28/02/2012 by londongirl72 (2 reviews written)

I've never been a big fan of Channel 5 until they started buying the US Crime dramas that have turned around their programming and viewing. Since the introduction of CSI, and their spin offs to adding The mentalist, Criminal Minds and other hit Crime dramas I tend to just watch this channel. I usually set up my Sky+ box to record series and I watch these when I feel like watching with the advantage of being able to fast forward the ads. Lately though, they've lost some programmes to Sky… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/03/2008 by Stevewebb99 (1 review written)

From time to time Channel 5 comes up with some very good history programs and also some good natural world offerings as well. Their current series - 'Ice Road Truckers' is the best thing on TV at the moment - full of drama, suspense and gritty human emotion… Read Full Review

“I am surprised to hear that half the country does not...”

Written on: 26/09/2005 by Stunt Gerbil (65 reviews written)

I am surprised to hear that half the country does not have C5. What are they missing? Loads of terrible films. Appalling late night sleaze. The worst sports coverage imaginable. Quite good news coverage. Loads of terrible cheap house, holiday, move abroad, relationship programmes. Somehow C5 is fantastic though. At least ITV have the money and should not do better. C5 seems to do quite well on a shoestring. Scrap those exploitation programmes late in the evening though. Remember this is England!… Read Full Review

“Channel Five may have preposterously tacky...”

Written on: 18/08/2005 by alan cole (12 reviews written)

Channel Five may have preposterously tacky documentaries and low grade entertainment shows, and is all very silly and populist, but it does have good films. Channel Five shows loads of films, lots from the golden era of the seventies, as well as more recent stuff of the sort that used to get shows on the other channels, but now hardly makes an appearance. It's not bad really and it's free. Oh and the news is quite good as well, at least as good as ITV (although that is not saying much). The… Read Full Review

“Channel 5 actually broadcasts at very very low power...”

Written on: 22/09/2004 by D B JARMEY (2 reviews written)

Channel 5 actually broadcasts at very very low power output causing poor picture quality. It is not broadcast on many, if indeed any, repeater transmitters. That means that over 50% of the country cannot receive it anyway. Our town Calne of over 15,000 people is a good example. Could do with more wildlife and science programmes (like Discovery). Could and should be a quality alternative… Read Full Review
