SBS and global youth media company VICE have partnered to bring Australians a new lifestyle and culture TV channel SBS VICELAND, launching at 4pm on Tuesday 15 November 2016.
The announcement of the name of the channel and the launch date comes following SBS and VICE announcing their partnership earlier this year. The channel will replace SBS 2 on television and online platforms, and will be available to all Australians for free.
SBS VICELAND will feature the best of SBS 2 news, sport and entertainment alongside the best programs from VICELAND – the distinctive channel of VICE-produced programs overseen by award-winning Director Spike Jonze, which launched to critical acclaim in the United States earlier this year. The line-up will include new shows covering culture, music, sports, fashion, technology and more, from around the world.
Details of the SBS VICELAND schedule will be revealed in the coming weeks.
