Two days ago UK broadcaster Five rebranded its multichannel Five Life as.. Fiver. The new look channel is an attempt by Five to jump start is fledgling digital expansion, which also includes the Five US network.

And musically, the first of the two idents feature the track ‘The Message’ by Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, not sure about the second video sorry the second video is ‘I Get Around’ by Dragonette.

The first 3 minutes of the new FiveUS digital channel just launched in the UK. It basically just introduces the programming, and you meet Russell who between shows will be touring the US talking to the people behind some of the shows and looking at the culture that we so love and hate.

Like in the other FiveUS clips this one also includes Sufjan Steven’s “Chicago”, but also mixes in a bit of Razorlight’s “America”.

Channel Five just launched two new digital only channels, FiveUS is as you could probably guess for American programming and will include the likes of the CSI’s and some American sports.

The music in the first video is appropriately enough “Chicago” by Sufjan Stevens, which is an awesome awesome song in its own right.

The third video is the first three minutes of Five US introducing the new channel, and also features the song “America” by Razorlight.

Update: John Suchet reminding you to rescan for the new channels.
