Sarah Palin launches her own online TV channel
The ex-Alaska governor and VP candidate promises subscribers: 'Together, we’ll go beyond the sound bites and cut through the media’s politically correct filter.'
Sarah Palin, the former Alaska Governor and vice-presidential candidate, has launched her own online TV network, The Sarah Palin Channel.
At a cost of $9.95 a month, or $99.95 a year, subscribers have access to Palin's commentary on "important issues facing the nation," Variety reported. They will also get a sneak peek at her life as "mother, grandmother, wife and neighbor." Subscriptions are free for members of the U.S. military, according to the report.
Users will be able to upload their own videos to the site, ask Palin questions and take part in online video discussions. The former VP candidate herself, also a Fox News contributor, oversees the channel's content as its executive editor.
“I want to talk directly to you on our channel, on my terms — and no need to please the powers that be,” the conservative politician said in a video launching the channel. “Together, we’ll go beyond the sound bites and cut through the media’s politically correct filter.”
"The Sarah Palin Channel" was inspired by TheBlaze, the web-channel launched by former Fox News hosts Glenn Beck in 2011, Variety reported. It features a countdown to the end of U.S. President Barack Obama's presidency, and a national debt counter.
