Has anyone else been able to use the Vice app with their Fido account?

When I try to watch something on the Vice app, all the episodes are locked and it won't let me unlock them.

I was able to sign up for it today - on Android.

Inside the app, I chose Fido as the provider and they asked me for mobile number and they sent me a SMS with a code to validate.

There are two apps, a Fido branded Daily Vice - which is being shutdown in February and the Vice app which is the one you want going forward.

Let me know if you get stuck.

It worked on my tablet account, so long as you haven't disabled receiving text messages. Thanked

You need to set your Language to English (Canada) for it to give you the option to sign up with Fido. By default a lot of people will set up their phones as English (United States) which won't let you activate vice. I've emailed their support to let them know about the issue.

Great tip. I had been wondering why I was able to set it up on my iPad tablet account but my iPhone was never giving me the option to login. I definitely have my iPhone set to USA to use the News app.

I remember when Vice used to be cool. Then they sold their soul to Rogers and recently they removed the comment section on their web pages because authors got so butt hurt when readers consistently expressed how disappointing the articles were.
