Alternative media outlet Vice is currently poised to position themselves over one of A+E Networks’ channels to secure its own TV channel, tentatively known as “Viceland.” The undertaking, which will in essence be a re-branded version of the H2 channel (also known as History International when first launched), will receive investment help from Disney for a currently unknown amount. Perhaps the most interesting news to come from this conglomeration is the appointed creative director of the project, slated to be Oscar award-winning director Spike Jonze (Her, Being John Malkovich). The aim, it seems, for “Viceland” is so that companies like A+E Networks and 21st Century Fox — another investor of the company — are intent on reaching the millennial market, a sector that perhaps does not resort to traditional television for news and entertainment.
