Channels Five changes on satellite - August 2015

Channel Five had operated five versions of Channel Five, for advertising purposes.

The five Channel Five regions were London, South/Central England and Wales, Northern England, Scotland and Northern Ireland, which enabled advertisers to target specific regions.
