Five Follows BBC, ITV with Mac-friendly Online TV Service

Recently the broadcaster launched a new version of the service utilising Flash that will work on Macs. Previously Demand Five relied on Windows Media Player to serve video streams, which limited its reach to PC users only.

Demand Five offers a mix of free and paid content, including CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, CSI: Miami, CSI: New York, NCIS, Numb3rs and the remake of Minder shown last week.
Those wishing to view online will have to sign up for free. There's a handy 'last night on five' section which shows what you might have missed.

"Adopting Flash makes Demand Five accessible to more computers, more operating systems and consequently more users. It's the first of many upgrades we expect to make to the service over the next 12 months," said Head of Digital Media at Five, Jonathan Lewis.
