BT has announced a new content partnership with VICE Media which sees its lifestyle and entertainment channel brought to BT TV.

VICE on TV, a youth-oriented lifestyle and entertainment channel, will give BT TV customers access to a variety of ground-breaking documentaries and award-winning series from Monday 11 March. Programmes on offer include Karley Sciortino's exploration of sex, gender, love and everything in between in the second series of her hit show 'Slutever', and the new two-hour nightly show 'VICE Live', covering all of the latest hot topics and trends from around the world.
 
The new deal also gives customers access to VICE's catch-up content plus a selection of library programming, including: acclaimed 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.
 
VICE shows will also be available on the BT TV app that now gives customers the ability to download and access content on the go as well as access to a range of TV platform.
 
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."
