Fifth Gear Moves to FAST


The long-running British series Fifth Gear has launched a FAST channel, available in the U.K., U.S. and Canada.

The channel currently offers 27 seasons of the automotive show. North One, producer of the series, and All3Media International’s digital team have been working together to produce exclusive compilation edits for the channel, featuring the best cars shown over the last 20 years and new “shoot-out” races between presenters Jason Plato and Vicki Butler-Henderson.

The Fifth Gear channel is available on Amazon Freevee, Plex and Pluto TV in the U.K. In the U.S., Fifth Gear is part of the programming lineup for Pluto TV Cars and has its own dedicated channel on Amazon Freevee, Plex and Xumo Play. Plex carries the channel in Canada.

“Working with All3Media International, we have built some firm foundations in the FAST market, and via Amazon Freevee, Plex, Pluto TV Cars and Xumo Play, Fifth Gear has found services who share our passion for getting the show to the biggest audience possible,” said Tom Clint, head of digital at North One.

Gary Woolf, executive VP of strategic development at All3Media International, added, “We are delighted to collaborate with North One in creating a unique FAST channel curating content from Fifth Gear in a way that will delight viewers. We’re thrilled with the interest in the brand as we roll out the FAST channel to an increasing range of top-level FAST services in both the U.K. and North America.”
