Its been a long, strange journey for Vice Media. What began as an irreverent, government-funded lifestyle magazine on the mean streets of Montreal metamorphosed over the years into a massive digital media empire. Vice Media’s boasts a show on HBO, a record label, and investments from everyone from A&E Networks to Disney. In 2016, it launched Viceland, a millennial-targeted lifestyle network helmed by Spike Jonze with original series, documentaries, acquired programming, and adaptations and reruns of Vices webseries.
Viceland is, unsurprisingly, quite unlike any other network. You can watch Ellen Page tour LGBTQ cultures around the world in Gaycation. You can watch 2 Chainz delve into the worlds most expensive stuff on Most Expensivest. You can watch cutting documentaries right before watching the magnificent Desus and Mero (right up until they decamped for Showtime). You can even watch Action Bronson smoking weed while watching Ancient Aliens.
Its never been the most-watched network on cable, but it is weird and ambitious, and it endures. Itd almost feel like a crime to sit down and watch such a defiantly odd channel with a standard cable subscription. Fortunately, its available on several live TV subscription services.
Here’s everything you need to know to watch Viceland online.
