(Pictured above: ‘Redfern Now’)

A press release from streaming platform Tulix alerted The Savvy Screener to the existence of Vibrant TV, a streaming service we had never heard of previously. So we decided to investigate.

Vibrant TV provides international English-language programming – much of it from Australia — through both a linear 24/7 channel, and video-on-demand (VOD).

Vibrant TV’s programming covers a wide range of genres. To discover all its shows — and to find out when they’re on — consult Vibrant TV’s schedule. For more information or to subscribe to the channel, visit
