This is a pretty big screw up, Surly the live CA would notice the mistake?

Are Channel 5 still live nowadays? It's more a Media Planning error than the CA, they just voice whatever is requested on the Continuity plan or briefed.

I've seen it on a promo for a normal TV show too, I think it was Blind Date. Perhaps its being rolled out for all new promos? Bit of an odd time to launch it.

It's also used on the new Will & Grace trailer in the standard pink 5, blue background.

There's a 'Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year' version of the Advent ident now airing on 5 - no numbers on the boxes.

Er... so 5Prime's launch has been put on hold till Spring and it will no longer be called 5Prime. They're rethinking the strategy and look.

It's behind a paywall.

Not sure I like this ‘5(word here)’ channel naming format, it’s awkward, clunky and doesn’t flow smoothly when said aloud than say ‘More 4’...
‘Prime 5’ as an initial name would’ve been a much better choice.

Having a channel called 5Prime could sort of undermine the main channel by implying it's full of leftovers or rubbish.

Or someone from Paramount Network in the US phoned them up and reminded them they're supposed to be launching a joint partnership TV channel this year!
