Vice Canada (ViceLand) Going Off the Air

TORONTO — Rogers Media and Vice Canada have announced the end of their three-year-old partnership, with TV channel Viceland slated to cease broadcasting on Rogers cable as of March 31 and Rogers giving up its interest in Vice Studio Canada.

Loved a lot of their shows and am saddened by this outcome.

Viceland channel’s future uncertain as Rogers pulls plug

---

Did anyone on Fido/Rogers ever watch this? I never have, but it is part of my cell plan. It seemed totally pointless. Apparently Rogers alone paid $100 million, yet they only got 55000 daily viewers on the TV channel.

I notice that Fido has stopped advertising Viceland in their plan descriptions too.

Hmmm.... did they lose money? If so, guess I should be expecting to see a new round of fee increases on my Rogers & Fido bills.
Tis banana is IRIE :razz:

10% off is cold, 50% off is warm, 75% off is hot, but FREE IS RFD!

It possibly means that not enough people were watching it.
I seem to recall VICE on our channel list but don't even recall what its theme was. I probably checked it out and moved on.
No political content in signatures (Who did I offend?)

I watched bits of it a few times. A bit too counter culture for me. A fat hip hop artist sloppily gorging himself in Europe while constantly swearing is not my idea of a travel or food show :)
Action Bronson? Action Who? :)

I like the Matty Matheson stuff.

They should go full web subscription. I'd sub directly if I could.

Vice's target demographic is millennials. Millennials don't have TV services.

What did they expect?

Almost all of Viceland stuff ends up on the various Vice Media Youtube channels. You can find all of Matty's stuff on the Munchies channel.
