HD5 was a Singaporean free-to-air television channel, that was launched as the high-definition version of Channel 5. It was the first HD broadcast on DTT in Southeast Asia. HD5 aired 10 hours of HD-produced series each week, including movies, dramas and original productions made by Mediacorp.

In late 2013, Channel 5 HD was launched on DTT and aired simulcast programming with Channel 5's SD feed. Due to national availability of Channel 5 HD, HD5 was shutdown on 1 March 2017 to free up the UHF spectrum.[1]
