Is VIX intraday data possible ?

I am pretty sure this has been asked but I cant find it anywhere. Is there any way to get the VIX price at a specific hour ? Say 12:30. So far I have only come across solution which have daily data.

Anyone have a solution for this ?

Most CBOE vix data I've seen is delayed.

Would the VXX ETN suffice as a good enough proxy?

No Michael this is the problem, needs to be VIX even if it is a paid source that works well.

Hi, just wondering if there are any new solutions to getting access to the VIX as an indicator?  It seems like this would be a pretty common request, and the proposed solutions I've seen in the forum history (most from a couple of years ago), seem rather clunky.  Thanks for any suggestions!

I agree that VXX ETN is not as good as the VIX.  As a workaround, I take the RSI of intraday VXX, and it seems to be an ever-so-slightly valuable tool for me.  You at least get a relative indicator that can be used in addition to daily VIX.
