Minute data of CBOE Volatility Index (^VIX)

I am looking for minute data on the VIX CBOE.

With this example from the free data I do not get any data, I most likely need the slice object.

public override void Initialize()
AddSecurity(SecurityType.Option, "VIX", Resolution.Minute);

Is the index also possible per minute, or is only Quandl data on daily basis present. I have seen some post on that.

Update Backtest

last time i checked only daily data was available
