Viceland to expand into the Netherlands next year26 October 2016
Viceland will be launching throughout the Netherlands in 2017.
Vice’s linear TV channel will be available through Liberty Global-owned Ziggo, and will be going live in the first quarter of the year.
The move follows Viceland’s UK and Ireland launch last month after initially being exclusive to the US.
Viceland NL will air a mixture of international programming and original, local content produced in the Netherlands and Belgium. All content on the 24-hour channel will be programmed, produced and developed in-house.
‘’The arrival of Viceland ensures that we will be present with our content on all screens – digital, mobile en linear – and as such, is a logical step for us in the evolution of Vice,” said Thijs Boon, CEO of Vice Media Benelux.
“We have the ambition to tell the most remarkable stories in fresh and innovative ways to millennials, and this step ensures that we raise the bar for ourselves even higher.”
