Hi guys..
I dont have a Mac so i cant make a channel 5 Demand 5 app, but im sure there is one of you that can.
Here are all the video rss feeds.

http://demand.five.tv/Handlers/PopularRssFeed.ashx
http://demand.five.tv/Handlers/RecommendedRssFeed.ashx
http://demand.five.tv/Handlers/FreeProgrammesRssFeed.ashx

if you dont want to make the app you can just add the feeds:

Enjoy & i hope someone makes the app..

I've been working on an application for Demand Five.
It doesn't actually use the official RSS feeds, as most of them only link to a show or season and not to individual episodes, but uses Yahoo Pipes feeds which extract episodes from the web site.
The application is working quite well on Ubuntu, but unfortunately currently doesn't work correctly on Windows (you cannot use it to view programs rated "Guidance" or higher as Boxee on Windows seems to hang if the total length of a cookie name plus value sent via bx-cookie is longer than 1000 characters and the Demand Five site uses stupidly long cookies).
Hopefully this problem will be eventually fixed, and I'll be able to release the application.

Have you tested it on OS X yet?
