Vice Media’s youth-focused lifestyle and entertainment channel Viceland has further expanded its global footprint by launching into the Israeli market.

The 24-hour television network will be made available in the territory later this month and will be carried by Partner Communications’ Partner TV, with Viceland programming accessible on-demand as part of its OTT service.

Israel is the latest country to launch Viceland as part of the millennial media company and content studio’s ongoing expansion that will see Vice programming available in 80 territories by the first quarter of 2018.

At launch, Viceland Israel’s programming will include docuseries Jungletown (pictured) from Sundance-award winning director Ondi Timoner; skateboard scavenger series King of The Road; and marijuana-infused culinary series Bong Appetit.

Viceland co-presidents Guy Slattery and Derek Freda are overseeing the development of the channel internationally.

“We are proud to be first to introduce Viceland to the Israeli viewers on our newly launched television service,” said Isaac Benbenisti, CEO of Partner Communications, in a statement. “The unique programing and original shows of Viceland, make for a perfect fit to the changing needs and habits of today’s viewers, particularly for the X and Y generations, and with Partner TV, viewers will be able to enjoy Viceland on any screen, TV and mobile.”
