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. Comcast management must be run by millennials with impaired attention span due to tech device overload, human communication incompetence due to same, or possibly brain damage. Only idiots would “not get it” to the extent of even considering deleting H2 for Vice. It’s almost laughable that the replacement of an intellectually stimulating channel with yet another mindless, who cares about this crap, show like Vice was even contemplated. Comcast didn’t need another show that targets millennials – most of the shows on television are already designed for attention span-damaged airheads as it is. Oh well, I guess I can cancel the extra channels I’ve been paying for since I only watch the news, H2 (deceased), Military channel (deceased) and History which has NO history on it. Zombie apocalypse at Comcast, folks – it’s here.

  2. H2 was my favorite channel!! Educational, entertaining, always my go to channel. The programming was provocative and intelligent. The producers did an excellent job and the shows were extremely well done. The fact that Viceland had to supplant H2 is terrible. Different audiences. We were told that those wonderful programs were going to be put on History channel, but all that is there are terrible reality shows about Pickers, and cars, No history, not thought provoking, nothing of real value, but Cheaper to produce, I’m sure. Bring back those wonderful shows Ancient aliens, universe, all of those wonderful informative shows that I watched every day. Put them on the History channel at least, that would be of value for its many fans! I would pay extra to get the programming on H2 back on TV. This change to Viceland was a terrible idea.

  3. Bring back H2! Get vice of the air! Who is responsible for this terrible decision. Offer vice if you like, but H2 is in popular demand, so why would you discontinue it. To replace one of the best viewing opportunities ever offered, H2, with a totally garbage channel- vice– Why!!!???? H2 comprised 50 to 60% of my viewing on my cable subscription. As one of many consumers, H2 is in strong demand. Perhaps a few will watch VICE?

  4. I want my H2 TV!!! Where is all that GREAT programming? What happened to it? Where did it go? It was just about the only channel I ever watched. H2 had such interesting and intriguing programming that is now no where to been seen! Where is it? There’s a hole in my channel guide because I took VICE off my favorites list because it airs nothing but JUNK. Giorgio – HELP!
    BRING BACK MY H2 TV!!!

  5. I keep checking H2 but all I see is bs. Looks like more reality tv. Who cares what a fat rapper does day to day? And while i smoked a lot of weed in day, the show Weediquette isn’t an objective show. The one episode i watched was biased and and that’s unfortunate for those seeking the real facts.
    Viceland sucks, period.

  6. Why do corporations think they need to stay with the now, right now. I sure the corp. will see customers leave because programs that are on the schedule now. I am more interested in the programming that was than now. Also why so many commercials. We pay for the service to be entertain not bored with all commercials. Wake up and see, we are streaming shows so not to have commercials.

  7. H2 was awesome. I will not watch a second of that vomit inducing thrash channel that replaced it.

    I need a channel that shows informative documentaries…very few of those channels left…

  8. Get rid of Viceland. Being born early in the Baby Boomer group, I grew up in the 60’s and saw the start of the current drug culture with LSD, the marijuana leaf becoming a cultural icon etc. I did not partake in drugs then or now and do not need to have Weediquette promoting another bunch of “Stoners”. Nor I need to watch the LGBT community on vacation. If I really wanted to see that, all I have to do is go to nearby Provincetown on the Cape, Fire Island, N.Y. or North Hampton, Ma., but I don’t. I enjoy a good party as much as the next person, but I have no desire to watch poorly drawn cartoon characters on Project X Party Legends reliving drunken stupors full of vomit and performing idiotic acts. All narrated with an inane babble full of the F and N words. Which brings me to Noisey, there are already plenty of legitimate musical options on cable , and OK some that even feature Rap HipHop and other genres that are full of the F and N words and have no cultural or social values. And if I wanted to see Kanye West, I’d watch reruns of episodes of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, at least there I get to see plenty of T & A. It appears to be the one show that might be worth watching is Motherboard, I have only seen what it’s premise is on a Google search. So bring back the H2 Channel and include Motherboard as part of the programming. And while you are at it, create a program where ancient torture techniques are explored, including a segment where the idiots that decided replace H2 with Viceland are drawn and quartered as punishment for subjecting us to such gibberish.

  9. Vice is no go. Will cancel xfinity if Ancient Aliens is not on the lineup, along with Rollins, and the myriad of other non-corporate shows. Vice is just more corporate shillery, and we’re absolutely not interested.

  10. Agreed. I’m thinking of switching satellite companies if they do not bring back HD2. So done with this vice crap.

  11. I don’t know what these people are thinking, H2 was a very good channel and was replaced buy some of the worst programming I have ever seen. Bring back H2 and get rid of this crap.

  12. What happened to the greatest channel ever?????? Miss H2, and all the great shows it was my favorite. We just got it a month ago, I was so excited to have it and now its GONE!!!! And the crap on the VICE, what is that suppose to be???? So disappointed, the shows that were on H2 are NOT on the History channel…same old crap… for hrs. on end… Please bring back H2…..
