What is My5, and how can I watch it?

My5 is the video-on-demand service provided by Channel 5, in the UK.

Previously known as Five Download and then later Demand 5, the streaming service includes a vast selection of popular TV viewing shown throughout the UK.

The content is provided by a wide range of channels and providers. They include Channel 5, 5USA, 5Star, 5SELECT, Paramount Network, WWE, BET, Blaze, Pluto TV and a whole load more.

Online, My5 is available from the My5 website, Facebook, SeeSaw, and YouTube. It was the first television network to embed its programming into a social network site, Facebook, in 2010. It’s also accessible through its smartphone mobile apps.

You can also get your hands on the My5 content over numerous television platforms. You can access it through BT Vision, Freesat, Roku, Sky, Virgin Media and YouView.

The masses of entertainment found on the Channel 5 channels covers everything from drama, soaps and kid’s viewing, to documentaries, food and leisure, and sport.

While many UK viewers are attracted to the gritty real-life entertainment of Can’t Pay? We’ll Take It Away or Casualty 24/7; others are happy to tune in through the week to watch Australian soaps Neighbours and Home & Away. There are plenty of international big-name movies too, and everything and anything in between.

If you’re looking for some very British viewing, well, My5 has got everything you’re looking for.

How can I watch My5 with StreamLocator?

Our ingenious router box makes My5 think you’re located in the United Kingdom. It switches your location to make their software believe that you're in one of the UK regions permitted to stream their content.

With the location workaround taken care of, all you need to do is pick a box set to binge, or find which British celebrities you want to follow around on a camping holiday, ghost hunting, or even in therapy!

No complicated settings or software installation required

We’ve kept everything as simple as possible for our users. We don’t ask you to install software on any of your devices, and we don’t need you to add profiles to your DNS settings either. There’s not much to do apart from plug in our router box and activate your account.

The StreamLocator router is always on and ready to interact with the websites you need unblocking. It doesn’t affect the speed of your Internet connection, and it won’t affect any of your usual online operations.

With all the action carried out at the router, each of the devices you use to connect through it will have automatic access to the websites you want to stream. It’s all taken care of in real-time without you having to lift a finger.

The router plugs into any free port of your WiFi router, providing instant connections for your Apple and Android phones, Xbox, Wii and PS4 consoles, tablets, Smart TVs, Roku, Chromecast and Apple TV hardware.

Connect as many as you need at a time, and each device can access a different country with its own location. How clever is that?

How to watch My5 from outside the UK

My5 UK blocks its content from different international sources using geolocation technology. Only UK residents are permitted to stream the content (due to complex legal rights), and that’s a nuisance for anyone wishing to watch their programs from overseas.

As technology advances, many of the geo-blocked services are becoming increasingly effective in blocking VPN or DNS workarounds, recognising many of the most popular methods, and foiling their connections.

Because StreamLocator uses a combination of both technologies, as well as some other really intelligent tools, it always creates the best possible method of connection for you to work with.

It’s as though you’re exactly where you need to be, without even thinking about it.

How to register for My5 from outside the UK

You don't have to register to watch My5. At all. So, just pick a show and dive straight in!

Do you need a VPN or DNS to watch My5 from outside the UK?

The usual way to watch programs provided by geo-blocked services is to supply a disguised location using VPN or DNS. There are plenty of different services to choose from, each with their own advantages and disadvantages.

Some will work brilliantly with some providers and yet be blocked by others. Both VPN and DNS are versatile and useful tools, but for getting around the geolocation blockers the streaming services use, StreamLocator is a step ahead.

VPN is ideal for protecting you and your private information over shared networks. However, they have their limitations when it comes to streaming TV, and Smart DNS systems can be troublesome to integrate.

The StreamLocator router takes all the worry and the work out of each system and provides you with far superior results. All the calculations are carried out for you, and servers switched without you even knowing.

The only thing you have to do is move over to your new StreamLocator WiFi network. And that’s really easy too.

How to unblock My5 UK

StreamLocator is an incredibly versatile plug and play system. Okay, so you’ll have to activate your account when you first plug our router in, but after that, all the hard work is done automatically.

Once you’re up and running, all of the My5 programs are yours for the taking. Whether it’s on a Smart TV, Apple Mac, PC, smartphone, or tablet; it’s time to sit back and enjoy some prime British television.

Does StreamLocator allow me to watch My5 for free?

With My5 being an advert-supported system, it’s absolutely free for you to watch. You’ll have to work your way through a few adverts here and there, but there aren’t many free channels that don’t have the same sort of setup.

The good news is, you can now catch up on Casualty, NCIS or Neighbours on My5 anytime you want to, wherever you are.
