By Chris Ariens 

Vice News Tonight, the nightly news program on HBO, is coming to BBC News as a repackaged program called Vice News This Week.

The show will air on BBC World News, outside of North America, which includes about 340 million households. The first episode airs this Saturday, April 28 at 12:30 a.m. GMT and again at 4:30 p.m. GMT.

“Complementing our own award-winning international coverage the programme will give our viewers a unique perspective on issues in the United States and around the world,” said Jim Egan, CEO of BBC Global News.

“We’re chuffed—I think I used that right—to be partnering with BBC Global News to bring our Peabody and Emmy-winning journalism to hundreds of millions of homes around the globe,” added Josh Tyrangiel evp of VICE News. “The BBC is the gold standard, and Vice News is truly honored to be part of its offering.”

Launched in October 2016, Vice News Tonight sets out to “re-imagine the nightly news.” Vice says its anchor-less broadcast brings “a modern approach to news and current affairs with an innovative and diverse approach to storytelling.”
