Channel 5 Broadcasting Limited (As of 2006, still the legal name of the company, though it now trades exclusively as Five) was licensed by the UK Government in 1995 after an exhaustive bidding process that lasted from 1993 and throughout 1994.
Channel 5 is also the only British analogue terrestrial channel without any availability in Ireland (all other analogue terrestrial broadcasters have carriage agreements with at least NTL Ireland and Chorus).
The channel began with a reputation for lowest-common-denominator broadcasting, famously screening low-budget "erotic thrillers" on Friday and Saturday nights (prompting the comment by the channel's director of programmes, Dawn Airey, that it was all about "films, football and fucking"), and concentrating its output on entertainment and lifestyle shows at the expense of factual programming.

The accent described here is the present-day version of the accent that has been used as the standard in phoneticians' description of the pronunciation of British English for centuries.
The number of native speakers of this accent who originate in Ireland, Scotland and Wales is very small and probably diminishing, and it is therefore a misnomer to call it an accent of BRITISH English.
The accent is most familiar as that used by most 'official' BBC speakers of English origin (newsreaders and announcers on Radio 4 and Radio 3, and most television channels).
