Vice VBS.TV

Vice launches its version of original online video: VBS.TV.

“Rescuing you from television’s death-like grip.”

I watched a few clips. I have to say that I really don’t like the taxidermy pods. Other than that, not too much different from the other hundred of these sites big and medium size existing media companies are rolling out. They do have a series in Baghdad which is kind of crunchy.

Gizmodo:

“Everybody’s favorite hipster magazine, Vice, has launched an online TV network that aims to take the young, fashionable, and urban demographic away from the living room and on to the internet. Well, even more onto the internet.

The new network features surprisingly high quality video streams, seeing we assumed the dudes putting it together would be too busy getting high and talking trash about the new Rapture album to actually build a decent video player. But yes, it’s much better than YouTube quality. And what do you get to enjoy on said quality?”
