The channel will be carried by Partner Communications’ newly created TV platform, Partner TV. Viceland programming will be made accessible as part of its next-gen OTT service.
At launch, Viceland Israel programming will include: docuseries Jungletown (created by Sundance-Award Winning director Ondi Timoner); skateboard scavenger show, King of The Road (in collaboration with Thrasher) and marijuana infused culinary series Bong Apetit (with Abdullah Saeed).
Viceland co-presidents Guy Slattery and Derek Freda are overseeing the development of the channel internationally, from show creation, to production, to brand identity.
“Boasting a dynamic and rapidly evolving TV market, Israel is considered a key part of Viceland’s international expansion,” said James Rosenstock, president of Viceland international and chief corporate development officer at Vice Media.
“With a shared digital vision and bold approach to accessible, multi-platform outputs, we’re excited for what’s to come with Partner Communications”.
