Vice news channel goes live

Vice Media has launched Vice News, its latest youth-skewing web video initiative that it says will deliver “hundreds of hours of provocative, immersive news programming from around the world.”

The online news channel will supplement Vice’s existing output on, through the Vice series on HBO, and on YouTube. The new content will be available on and a dedicated Vice News YouTube channel.

“The channel will fill a void left by mainstream media and news aggregation websites struggling to engage youth audiences and offer high-quality compelling digital programming,” the firm said.

Vice now claims to have 35 foreign bureaus and more than 4,000 contributors around the world.
