Viceland : new channel launches on Sky
Youth channel Viceland has now appeared on Sky TV.
Described as a “new TV channel for and by young people curious about life right now”, Viceland promises to offer programmes about music, food, art, sex, drugs, fashion, film, sports and technology, in contrast to other youth-orientated channels that often feature wall-to-wall US dramas and comedy series.
With an emphasis on current affairs for the 16-35 age group, the channel will fill some of the void left by BBC Three’s departure from linear TV platforms earlier this year.
Hate For Beginners will follow comedian Jamali Maddix (Safeword, The John Bishop Show) as he travels Europe and America to befriend extremists, in order to discovery what motivates them. It will run to six hour-long episodes.
Needles & Pins will see tattoo artist Grace Neutral travelling the world to meet people pushing the boundaries of body art such as teens using ink to cover scars and former LA gangsters with face tattoos.
The channel will also play US series such as Gaycation, Black Market, Weediquette, Huang’s World, Noisey,States of Undress, Woman, Vice World of Sports and current affairs show Vice.
