Two Vice ‘FAST’ Channels Added to AMG’s Local Now Platform


LOS ANGELES — Allen Media Group’s Local Now free streaming service has forged a partnership with VICE Media Group, a move that sees two VICE FAST channels added to the platform.

Local Now viewers can now stream VICE NEWS and VICE FAST — adding new programming targeting younger audiences to the “FAST” channels service.

The VICE NEWS and VICE FAST channels are powered by VICE distribution, a new generation company involved in all forms of distribution, including the licensing of VICE Media Group’s youth-focused premium long-form and digital short-form content library to global partners, creating and managing the group’s FAST channels and substantial AVOD library, and brokering key channel and content partnerships with global platforms and social media worldwide.

“VICE NEWS brings viewers its unique take on the news with bold, immersive, and fearless storytelling you won’t see anywhere else, while VICE FAST tells stories to spark curiosity and challenge assumptions through series covering culture, entertainment, food, tech and sports,” the company said.

“We are excited to add the VICE NEWS and VICE FAST channels to Local Now,” said Byron Allen, Founder/Chairman/CEO of Allen Media Group. “With the addition of these VICE Media Group channels, Local Now viewers now have even more award-winning news, culture, food, sports and entertainment content.”
