TechCrunch UK recently profiled t5m and commented that:

UK startup t5m has today re-launched … by setting up a global network of bureaus to produce and syndicating short-form interactive 3-5 minute HD video, built around brands and distributed via its own custom-built video player.

Right now the portal site is mainly a showcase but next February it will re-launch with personalisation, social networking, shopping, competitions and new video contributors. It’s being built on a customised version of the open-source WordPress platform called WordPress Multi-User… The site now features 300 hours of HD content, 100 in-depth profiles and over 20 events.
