Local Now has expanded its entertainment and news programming through the addition of the Vice Fast and Vice News channels. As both of these are free, ad-supported streaming television (FAST) channels, users won’t have to worry about a price increase due to the new arrivals.

In fact, Local Now users don’t have to worry about a price increase at all, as Local Now is a completely free streaming service from Allen Media Group. Local Now provides access to more than 450 linear channels and a variety of on-demand programming.

In terms of the new Vice channels, Vice News is exactly what it sounds like – a channel dedicated to news programming from the world of Vice. In contrast, Vice Fast provides access to programming spanning the culture, entertainment, food, tech and sports categories.

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.”

Late last month, Local Now added the Time FAST channel to its lineup, and this was following the addition of USA Today and USA Today Sports back in October.

Back in September, Local Now received a large boost in CBS content, thanks to the addition of 18 CBS FAST channels, including 14 CBS News stations.
