Vice is to launch TV and digital services in more than 50 countries, as the youth-focused media company continues to expand aggressively.
It has struck a range of deals with international media partners to bring TV, mobile and digital services to regions including the Middle East, Africa, India and south-east Asia. Vice will also extend its services in existing markets including Australia, New Zealand and Canada.
The deals will see a expansion of Vice’s empire – which include the Viceland TV channel, Vice News and lifestyle, culture and entertainment programming – from about 30 countries to more than 80. Overall, the company’s new Viceland TV channel will be available in 44 countries.
