5Select (stylised as 5SELECT) is a British free-to-air television channel which features documentaries, arts, dramas, comedies and Channel 5 original content.[1][2] It is owned by Paramount Global and operated by Paramount Networks UK & Australia.

History

Channel 5 were set to launch a new channel called 5Prime. It was going to be a catch-up channel, launching in January 2018, but it was never officially launched. A month later, 5Prime was rebranded as 5Select and it launched at 9:00am on 13 February 2018, with the first programme, Access, being shown.[3] On the 1st of July 2021, 5Select moved from the SDN (COM4) MUX to the BBC B HD Mux on Freeview. As a result, viewers with older Freeview equipment lost the channel while viewers with DVB-T2 compatible Freeview TVs or Freeview+HD boxes feature could receive the channel.
