Verizon has signed a multi-year deal with content provider VICE for its upcoming mobile video service.

The partnership will include a broad selection of VICE digital content, including original domestic and international programming produced exclusively for Verizon, and a curated selection of original videos from across VICE's digital channels covering a range of categories, from cultural stories to food, travel, tech and more.

The VICE original interview series, Autobiographies, will also headline this collaboration, taking audiences deep into the lives of some of society's most interesting, high-profile personalities.

From its beginnings as a small Montreal-based punk mag in 1994, VICE has become a popular news and documentary outlet. It recently *** signed a deal with HBO to provide content as well.

"The media landscape is experiencing a seismic shift in storytelling, audience, immediacy and platforms," said Terry Denson, vice president of content strategy and acquisition at Verizon. "VICE is connecting with an entire generation in a way that no one else is, and Verizon will connect consumers to VICE in a way that no one else does by combining VICE's storytelling with the most compelling mobile video platform."
