Channel Five iPad app to launch in autumn

Method has announced  the Channel Five iPad app which it is working on for the broadcaster’s Demand Five on-demand service is set to launch this autumn.

The consultancy was appointed in April 2010 to work on a suite of interface designs and a visual language  for Demand Five.

It has already designed the channel’s online playback service and a Demand Five iPhone app.

There are also Method designed-interface designs for You View – the free-to-air internet-connected TV service which is set to launch this year.

The look prescribed across platforms is ‘more televisual with a darker colour palette where video can come to the forefront’, according to Method creative director Philip O’Dwyer.

In this week’s news analysis, published tomorrow, Design Week looks at designing for broadcasters’ on-demand services and the challenges brought about by migrating to new platforms.
