VICE TV IS AMERICA’S FASTEST GROWING ENTERTAINMENT CABLE NETWORK

BROOKLYN, NY (April 1, 2021) — VICE TV, the Emmy(R)-winning international television network from VICE Media Group, is reporting 10% growth in A18-49 and 20% growth in A25-54, making it the fastest growing network among general entertainment networks in over 60 million homes.

The network’s A25-54 growth, which is its biggest year-over-year increase ever, eluded industry trends; usage is down -19% while ad-supported cable networks are down -18%, giving VICE TV a nearly +40 point delta over the industry norms. In the same vein, VICE TV’s A18-49 performance bucked industry trends, with its growth a stark contrast to a -22% decrease in TV usage and a -21% dip in cable, giving VICE TV an over +30 point delta over the industry norms.

VICE TV’S success in 1Q21 came on the heels of strong performances for series such as QAnon: The Search for Q (which is the network’s #3 show of all time), as well as the launch of Dark Side of the Ring: Confidential and the return of Hamilton’s Pharmacopeia.

“We are humbled to see this validation of our strategy to keep telling stories others won’t. We are also deeply appreciative of our audience who continues to watch,” said Morgan Hertzan, Executive Vice President & General Manager, VICE TV. “This is a great day for everyone at VICE TV who has worked so hard to deliver on our goal, including our programming, marketing, production and sales teams. This is a moment for everyone at VICE Media Group and our partners at A+E Networks to be extremely proud of these growth numbers.”

Looking ahead, the network has an exciting slate original programming planned for 2021, including the highly-anticipated third season of VICE TV’s top performing show of all time, Dark Side of the Ring, the #1 non-fiction series on networks in less than 70 million homes1, as well as its spinoff franchises, Dark Side Of Football and Dark Side of the ’90s.

VICE TV is a key business line within VICE Media Group (VMG). The diversified media portfolio also includes ground-breaking film, digital, news, beauty, entertainment and culture across five business lines. VICE.com is an award-winning international network of digital content; VICE STUDIOS, a feature film and television production studio; VICE NEWS, a Peabody award-winning news division featuring the most Emmy(R)-awarded nightly news broadcast, VICE News Tonight, which airs on VICE TV ; and VIRTUE, a global, full-service creative agency.

Coming off the back of a pivotal year for VMG – this news continues the success for the Group in seeing all business lines achieve profitability and growth — with that trajectory expected to continue into 2021.
