Sarah Palin Launches Subscription-Based Online Video Channel

Sarah Palin has just launched a new subscription-based online video network. Any guesses as to its name?

The former Republican Alaskan governor-turned-VP-candidate-turned-reality-TV-star and Fox News contributor announced the Sarah Palin Channel this Sunday evening on her Facebook page.

“Tired of media filters? Well, so am I,” she wrote. “So, let’s go rogue together and launch our own member-supported channel! This will be OUR channel, for you and for me, and we’ll all get to call it like it is.”

According to Variety, Palin’s eponymous channel was created with the help of TAPP, the online-video venture formed by former NBCUniversal chairman Jeff Gaspin and former CNN U.S. president Jon Klein.

In a promotional two-and-a-half minute video, Palin tells her viewers: “I want to talk directly to you on our channel, on my terms, and no need to please the powers that be. Together we’ll go beyond the sound bites and cut through the media’s politically-correct filter.”

Subscriptions will reportedly cost $9.95 per month, or $99.95 for a one-year plan. Content for the channel will largely be based on Palin’s speeches, commentary, Q&A sessions, and other curated items.

The channel’s website gives some “sample” videos of what users can expect: One shows Palin answering user questions on “Obama’s addiction,” another is the former governor talking to camera about not fearing the dreaded “i-word” (impeachment), and another is her 30+ minute speech before the 2014 Western Conservative Summit.
