Viceland will be available to over two million new households in the Netherlands following two new deals with carriers in the region. From this month the channel will be available via KPN and T-Mobile.
Cable operator Ziggo was the first to carry the localised version of Viceland in a deal that was exclusive to the cabler when it launched in March 2017. At the same time, Belgian Telenet started to carry the Dutch language version.
Announcing the deal Stefan Tieleman, General Manager Viceland and Vice Studios, Benelux said: “Just a little over a year after our launch, these two new deals demonstrate our continued growth and development in region. Through our increased distribution on KPN and T-Mobile, almost all households in the Netherlands will now be able to enjoy our slate of international and ever-growing local productions, all offering Vice’s unique and unfiltered view on the world we live in today.”
Viceland will bring its mix of international content and diverse range of local productions to both new platforms on July 18 2018. After Ziggo, Caiway was the second operator to carry channel.
To date, Viceland channels are broadcast in the US, UK, Ireland, France, Australia, New Zealand, Sub-Saharan Africa, Israel and Benelux, with programming blocks also available in Latin America, Spain and Portugal.
