H2 becomes Viceland Feb. 29

Meredith Ennis

On Feb. 29, H2 becomes Viceland, a 24-hour lifestyle channel aimed at millennials. According to filmmaker and creative director of the new channel Spike Jones, “It feels like most channels are just a collection of shows. We wanted Viceland to be different, to feel like everything on there has a reason to exist and a strong point of view. [The shows on Viceland are] all unscripted shows, made by filmmakers. We’re trying to make a channel that’s personal, that feels like a group of people trying to understand the world we live in.”

  1. Please fire the idiot who made the decision to replace H2 with Viceland. WHAT?????? So create a new channel but dumping H2???? Really poor business decision. STUPID!!!

  2. Well, the comment I saw about the complaints not being any more than normal is a fallacy. I’m here to tell you that the email for A&E was backed up so far, their mailbox was full for days. What really gets me is that Disney gave them the start-up money, 200 million, to get the Viceland Channel started. That Disney was somehow complicit in this whole deal is unbelievable, to say the least. Be advised that H2 (History Channel 2) is still available in over 60 markets outside the U.S. Just hammer your cable/satellite company, A&E and Disney plus their Facebook pages about this Viceland channel and how abhorrent it really is and that a return of H2 should happen immediately, if not sooner. It is not fit for children or young teens and should only be available on pay per view. Make your thoughts known to the people that count and don’t just take this as another stupid stockholder pleaser because Viceland was created for millennials.

  4. Vice land terrible. A&E is 80 percent owned by Disney. Wonder how he would have liked his name associated with this programming.

    A&E claims no abnormal complaints about the change, yet their email box is full and email is not delivered (undoubtedly due comments for satisfied viewers , ha, ha).

  5. Viceland is terrible. Everyone here seems to agree. One article states that A&E has recieved no more complaints than normal, yet their email box is not receiving mail since the mail box is full–no doubt due to the positive comments about their new station (ha, ha).

    It should be noted for those that are interested, that A&E is 80 per cent owned by Disney net work. (I would what Walt Disney think with his name associated with Viceland programming.

  6. H2 was my most favorite channel. I am so disappointed that it has been removed. Discussing the programs with my friends was a weekly routine. This was a poor decision.

  7. I can’t believe that anybody could possibly think that this new viceland channel was a good idea..this channel is the biggest waste of programming.. Bring back H2 because obviously they promised the H2 shows would now be found on the History Channel..guess what..I haven’t found one yet..there were alot of educational and interesting shows that now are gone..Viceland is the worst idea ever..

  8. If this is what Millenials watch, then the future doesn’t bode well.

    I cut my $100+ Direct bill and went to a $20 Sling bill.
    May not keep it much longer.
    Very little to watch on pay tv.

  9. Are you kidding? Brain cells diminish just passing the listing on the guide channel. What a waste of TV space.

  10. this vice channel is nothing but trash. Comcast says they have nothing to do with it. But they can stop airing the channel. h2 was a very educational cannel. vice channel is nothing but puke.Get on the ball Comcast and drop them from your network, and stop jamming this trash down our throats

  11. I have been a direct tv customer for over 15 years. I can not understand why anyone would put something like the viceland channel on tv. History channel 2 was worth wading through all the other crap channels to get to. If other people feel the same as I do, (and it seems obvious that they do), are a then I would figure that viceland channel will soon disappear from the earth forever and history 2 will be back where it belongs . I am a patient person, but if things are not changed soon I will be leaving direct tv for good over this.

  12. Are you serious. This is the biggest joke on pay TV. I can’t believe anyone of any age, sex, race or I.Q. would watch this crap. I called Direct tv and they try to blame the programmer, what or whoever that is and say if I want H2 I have to pay extra from on demand.Just more in the pay more get less direction of pay tv. No wonder people are dropping it and seeking other alternatives. Guess I’ll have to check Dish and Comcast to see what is going on with them.

  13. Vice is the stupidest channel I have ever watched !! You need to bring back my H2 channel , VICE has no place and should not have been invented. This has brought me even closer to me getting rid of DISH ! If you want to cram this down my throat it isn’t happening !! I would rather watch Infomericals or religion channels …… You have hit a NEW LOW on my viewing !

  14. This channel is terrible nothing good on it at all bring back H2. Bring back some quality programming where you may actually learn something… Not this crap on this channel

    • well looks like Mike Judge predicted the Future. watch his movie Idiocracy and check out the TV shows and movies those people watched in his movie,(the Movie ASS and the TV show ow My balls). oh well there goes our world… Better find a safe place to hide from the Dumb people.
