My5 is one of the unsung heroes of streaming - it’s there when you want to binge watch Storage Hunters on a rainy Sunday afternoon or are craving a new historical documentary to get your teeth into.

But it’s got far more to offer than you’d think. In fact, it’s got a whole library of hidden gems nestled away beneath the surface.

For starters, you get access to highlights from the Paramount network - bringing you some of the best guilty pleasure entertainment the US has to offer. What’s available rotates regularly, so it’s worth checking in whenever you’re stuck for inspiration.

Alongside this, you get free access to monthly highlights from My5’s partners - including BLAZE, BET, PBS America, Real Stories, Together TV, and Timeline. It’s an amazing way to access shows you’d normally have to pay to stream.

That’s not all.

If you delve into the channels on offer, you’ll discover the delights of Pluto Tv, who partnered with My5 to bring three of their best channels straight to your Freeview Play box. That means you can access your favourite B-movies from years gone by on their movie channel, make your taste buds water with Pluto Food and sit glued to the edge of your seat with hits from Pluto Drama.

And if you’ve got young kids to entertain, you can’t miss out on the great range of shows My5 is sharing through its Milkshake! Channel. From guaranteed aww moments with The Secret Life of Puppies and The Secret Life of Kittens through to old family favourites like Mr Men and Fireman Sam, there’s something to keep every kid entertained.

It couldn’t be easier to access this amazing range of shows and movies with your Manhattan TV T3 or T3-R - just navigate your way to the My5 app and dive into the channels they have on offer. There’s no hidden charges or extra fees, just a whole new world of TV waiting for you to discover it.
