H2

Unbelievable! Cancelling H2 programs for Vice. Putting Spike Jones in control of that train wreck. I exclusively watched H2. In fact we bought a bigger tv package to get that channel and you just cancel it! I wouldn't watch the regular History channel ever because you put these ridiculous swamp people and pawn stars and American pickets non stop. Poor programming. A &E you must have sold your souls to the devil. I smell a conspiracy! Taking away that channel was a really big deal to lots of people. The programming on vice should have stayed on the Internet. It doesn't belong in our homes and is not worth the added cost. I just won't be watching as much tv. It will fail. You have screwed an important sector of this world out of what was working.

A&E Viceland

Why would you replace a show that was popular with this garbage? I am tired of having things forced fed to me. My family including my teenage kids (the people your new show is geared towards) liked watching H2 together. If you think that this show is going to get the younger generation to watch more television you are wrong. There are too many other things for them to do than watch your show. Parents don't want there kids watching pot heads, bikers and gay people. I don't have a problem with gay people, I just don't like having it forced on me or my family. What you need to consider is that the target audience you are going for doesn't pay the cable bill, the Baby Boomers and Generation X pay the cable bills. I am going to block this channel along with all other channels affiliated with you and your partners. I am also going to call my cable company to complain about Viceland. You may not listen but I am sure if enough people complain to the cable companies something may be done. Your company is not helping kids, it is hurting them.

H2

I don't have a clue what ya'll were thinking, but for a teacher the absence of H2 programming in the last week is comparable to a black hole opening and swallowing me up. I cannot express how forlorn I am over the lost of all my favorite programming. I just can't figure out WHAT the motivation was. I'm dumbfounded! And to top it off, Viceland programming is awful, not worthy of viewing, and frankly just more mindless TV programming. If y'all had moved the actual "history" programs over to the History channel, that would have been great. However, that channel continues to show reality show programs. I'm dying here! Please fix it. Please!!

Many Others Finger Deep

There are many other companies involved in this mess. We all have to contact them as well and tell them what a huge mistake this was !
"Vice is also expected to raise some additional capital in order to assist its TV push. According to the Wall Street Journal, A&E will pick up an additional 7% stake in the company, and Disneywill invest ~$200 million in it."

" A&E purchased a 10% share in Vice for a reported price of $250 million in August 2014"

" A&E is going to buy a 10% share in the company, worth $250 million."

"A&E’s investment values Vice at a more favorable $2.5 billion. 21st Century Fox also invested $70 million (5% share) in Vice back in June, valuing the media company at only $1.4 billion."

Viceland

History Channel President Paul Buccieri, and CEO Nancy Dubuc,

I am not sure where to begin. No, I am not going to ask if you are high or smoking dope as your new channel seems to endorse. No, I am not going to call you derogatory names like “feminist Nazi”, “hippy drug using left winger”,” advocate for the “gay agenda” or any of the other colorful names that are being hurled at you for your poor choice to remove H2 from the American line up.

I would just like you to really think about this. You canceled a network channel that really had a good following for the chance that you will snag a certain demographic (and that is what vice is) that is notorious for not watching television to begin with. You are hoping that a web site will some how cross over to the TV market? That is some big gamble. Such a big gamble that people are wondering about your decision making. That’s got to sting just a bit.

I think you are going to fail. Its regrettable, I just don’t see how you can pull it off though. I know for certain you have managed to upset a big portion of the male television audience. You know the ones who watch the TV and more specifically the old H2.

Hey, chin up. You never know you might pull it off and viceland might be a big hit like the old Discovery-New York Times channel was.( insert the sound of crickets chirping here)

Anyhow you still have all of your lifetime channels and that FYI channel as well and we all know that those hold such a huge market share.

Perhaps you should just change the corporate name to “Lifetime and bunch of channels you probably don't watch anyhow networks”. I think you would agree if you were perfectly honest.

If you gave a damn about your viewers the very least you could do is have the history channel air some of the shows that H2 did and maybe cut down on Pawn Stars. There is more to History than a pawn shop in Vegas.

In closing, I hope you are pleased with yourselves. You have lost another viewer for all of your networks.

Good news is I know where to find all of your old programming online so I will just visit those sites.You know what else, shh, they have your new shows as well. Therefore my receiver will never register another A&E Network channel again.

Hey wait. What happens if others do that as well. Isn't your commercial airtime price based on your ratings? Wow. Make your viewers mad, that is a brilliant
business plan. “You go A&E” you have the right people at the helm sort like the
Exxon did when they placed Joseph Hazelwood as Captain of the Valdez.

Bring back h2/ Viceland is ridiculous

H2 was my favorite channel and a channel I could watch with my kids. Viceland is such a disappointment and its content is completely ridiculous.

BRING BACK H2

H2 changes to VICELAND.

VICELAND is a cesspool of waste. More filth on the TV. I guess it is too much to hope for programing that is informative and educational. H2 and HISTORY were my 'go to' channels. Now, all the more reason to cancel purchased TV entertainment. my community has over 40 TV STATION'S AVAILABLE over air. Just bought a TV antenna.

Is A&E TV stoned as well ?

Whoever made the decision to replace H2 must've done it getting stoned while being porked from behind from some unbathed fatso with a fagbun inside of a ladyboy karaoke bathouse somewhere in SanFranciscos gay neighborhood

This diplorable ViceLaff channel should be a pay channel not part of ones cable package.

What are you doing?!?!?!

I thought that when H2 started playing clips that it was going to be an affiliate channel being promoted or at least only shared with the regular programming. This is total BS. I don't want to watch a bunch of gang bangers smoking dope and rapping with some fat ass white guy that eats everything in sight. Really?? I don't want to watch a bunch of pot heads drooling over themselves either. If you are going to switch the programming you had to History like The Universe and all of the other science and brain expanding features, where are they? All I see is that stupid Viking drama crap mixed in with re-runs of Pickers and pawn stars. This new program sucks. Hope it fails miserably after your brains ooze out from this toxic crap10682

H2 disappearing!!!!!

The ONLY channel on TV worth watching was H2. I never had to worry about what we were watching with my kid, because I knew it would be educational or at least thought and dialog provoking. I thought I had lost my mind when I turned on the TV and the show playing was about Japanese women and their fascination with homosexual male porn. To each his own, but it's not exactly what we want to watch together as a family or otherwise. I saw something about H2 changing to Viceland and that the shows we love would be playing on the History Channel. I thought it could be a good change. But it isn't. Just Pawn stars and Pickers and all the same brain melting stupidity that made me seek out H2 to begin with. Whoever did this, FIX IT. It's worse than bad and everybody I know thinks the same thing. Bring back H2 and it's line up, because nobody I know is going to watch the Viceland crap.

H2 to Viceland mistake

Come on A&E!!! Surely in the year 2016 and with the $250,000,000.00 "investment" that was made, you could have established a new and unique channel for this Viceland garbage? --and left H2 alone in the meantime?

Smartest people in the room, no doubt.

Viceland vs H2

I got att u verse just so I could watch H2! Believe me I wouldn't give the AT&T anymore money than I have to. Shame on att too!!! I watched vice land once, first out of curiosity, then out of shock. Who the hell came up with this idea. They need to be fired. You need to be fired because you hired the ones that need to be fired !!
How long are you going to make me suffer? I hate viceland. I will boycott advertisers. I will boycott the history channel also!
Viceland, get a meeting room at the neighborhood library. That way you can discuss anything you want. Leave us out of your misirable conversations! Give me my 👽 back!!!!
