- To create an exciting new look and feel for the Channel 5 website
- To give the Channel 5 team the tools to create engaging editorial content
- To build a system which links seamlessly with the Channel 5 program and scheduling data
Behind the scenes, our site is talking constantly to Channel 5’s API to keep the site updated with the latest Shows and Schedules.
Jellyfish built all of this onto a Wordpress-based CMS to allow the Channel 5 internal teams to continually add and update content, as quickly and easily as possible. We hope you'll agree the work speaks for itself.
