From a media release:
Rogers and VICE present a first look at the programming available on upcoming Canadian specialty channel VICELAND, with the world premiere of original, documentary series Cyberwar on Sunday, Jan. 31 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on City.
A 16-part, half-hour documentary series, Cyberwar centres around the conflicts being waged on the world’s newest battlefield – the Internet – and the federal agencies, activists, (para-)militaries and corporations fighting them. Hosted by VICE News’s Ben Makuch, each episode focuses on one case study, investigation, or hypothetical scenario of geopolitical significance, explored through conversations with experts shot in unexpected locations, curated historical archives, and sophisticated animation and effects.
In addition, viewers can catch the Best of VICE Canada every Sunday night at 10 p.m. ET/PT beginning January 3 on City. Never before aired on television, Best of VICE Canada will premiere VICE’s Canadian-made, digital-first documentaries, including in-depth investigative pieces The New Era of Canadian Sex Work, Canada’s Waterless Communities: Nekastanga, and Cloning the Woolly Mammoth.
The newest addition to the Rogers Media specialty portfolio, VICELAND will launch in Winter 2016, featuring hundreds of hours of new, exclusive programming, including Gaycation with Ellen Page (Freeheld) and friend and co-host Ian Daniel, and Black Market with Michael K. Williams (The Wire). Also a proud home to Canadian content, VICELAND will feature many series produced out of the VICE Canada studio, including Terror with VICE Media Co-Founder Suroosh Alvi.
