The youth-oriented lifestyle and entertainment channel Vice will join the BT TV platform from next week (Monday 11 March).
The tie-up with BT means Vice is now available on all UK TV providers.
Its programmes include Karley Sciortino’s exploration of sex, gender, love and everything in between in Slutever, and the new two-hour nightly show Vice Live, covering all of the latest hot topics and trends from around the world.
BT customers will also gain access to Vice’s catch-up content plus a selection of library programming, including: the documentary Hate Thy Neighbour, in which comedian Jamali Maddix confronts far-right groups on the rise in the UK, US and Europe; My House, the acclaimed documentary series that follows a group of dynamic dancers who give an insider’s guide to New York’s house and ball scene, and The Trixie and Katya Show, where drag icons Trixie and Katya examine life’s most important issues from love and sex, to fear and death.
Customers will be able to watch on their BT set top box as well as through the BT TV app.
Andy Haworth, Managing Director for Content and Strategy for BT’s Consumer division said: “Our partnership with Vice Media gives BT customers a range of brilliantly diverse, engaging and original shows on Vice to add to our exciting TV offering.
“Vice joins a brilliant line-up of the world’s best partners and unrivalled content for BT TV customers – from services like Amazon Prime, Netflix, NOW TV and BBC iPlayer to world class sport, drama and entertainment through BT Sport, AMC and UK TV.”
CJ Fahey, General Manager, Vice TV & Studios, EMEA, commented: “We are delighted to have inked a new partnership with BT, meaning that our new TV channel has now reached full distribution across the UK and making our content available to even more viewers.
“We look forward to working in partnership with BT to growing our audience and allowing viewers to access our programming across a range of platforms and services.”
