Feeding the 'Vice' beast

Vice CEO Shane Smith has built an empire around content aimed at millennials. Now, he says he's bringing that content to many more TV networks around the globe.

In an exclusive interview with CNBC from London, Smith said the company will launch a Vice TV network in the U.S., along with a dozen in Europe, next year.

Smith didn't say who the company's partner in the U.S. will be, but in Europe the company will buy some networks, partner and do joint ventures with others.
