Why have you suddenly dropped Gilmore Girls and replace it with garbage about a trucking company ? Do you intend reinstating it and if so, when?

Thomas : Whilst there is TVCatchup - Watch Channel 5 Live and for free for the normal channel, they don't carry +1. Perhaps TVCatchup - Watch Channel 5 Live and for free can help?

Regarding you programme which is now this minute shoring "Meghan Markle What went wrong". what made you show something like that? Twisting intentionally everything that Meghan has done? What you are doing is not just ratial discrimination, but politically twisted> Shame on you. I hoped that Britain would have improved after so many years of "racial integration". This shows the hypocrisy of the British mentality.

Regarding the programme on Meghan and Harry today, how could you twist all information making Meghan look as if she was an opportunist, when you know she wasnt' . It was sick. Can't even send this message as you have electronically made it imipossible to send.

Leda Schoen: This isn't Channel 5's website and nobody from this independent technical help website has anything to do with any programme or channel/broadcaster. I would suggest sending your complaint to Channel 5 via their own website, which is linked at the top of this page.

Channel 5 +1 has moved to Freeview LCN 38. It remains on the PSB3 multiplex, which can only be received by HD capable equipment (most will have either a Freeview HD/Freeview Play or YouView logo).
