Give me 5 !

Channel 5 is on-air!

Channel 5 launched on 30th March 1997, and the second phase of transmitter rollouts was completed at the end of the summer.
The full Channel 5 teletext service finally went on air in October 1997.

As a result this page relating to Channel 5 launch information has now closed. The images of early test transmissions, and details of the teletext service are now contained in other sections in the Meldrum Home Page.
