Channel 5 is to launch a timeshift channel, Channel 5+1, that will be available on the Freeview, Freesat and Sky platforms from early December. The channel will join Richard Desmond's current offerings Channel 5, 5* and 5 USA. It is expected that Channel 5 +1 will also be available via cable providers in 2012.

The Audit Bureau of Circulations has adapted its consumer magazine reporting standards to allow publishers to include overseas digital editions. Overseas digital editions have not previously been included in magazines' ABC certificates unless a title is sold for at least 50 per cent of the print cover price abroad.
