Virgin Media has announced details of extra television services for mobile customers

People who recycle a mobile phone may find themselves in a position to sign up for a new device with Virgin Media and enjoy the highlights of Channel 5.

The communications firm has announced a deal with the broadcaster to make many of its programmes available to those with a handset that boasts a mobile broadband connection.

Titles include productions such as The Gadget Show, Fifth Gear and CSI: Miami, all of which will be able to view through Demand Five.

Cindy Rose, executive director of digital entertainment at Virgin Media, says: "With a high calibre of shows including quality US drama, popular Australian soaps and entertaining and informative home-grown programmes with many in HD, Demand Five has something for everyone."

Soap fans may be particularly impressed by the new offering, as the company will be the only one to offer all the major programmes of this genre through its mobile broadband service.

Virgin Media recently rolled out the UK's fastest broadband service, capable of speeds of up to 100Mb/s.

Julie Snape, head of marketing at Envirofone, says: "If you're a telly fan, this might be the deal for you. Why not trade-in your old phone? You could make some extra cash."
