Much like Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin will soon have her own subscription-based TV channel. Dubbed "Rogue TV" and offered by digital service provider Tapp, Palin's outlet will cost $10/month and is expected to launch in April or May. Capital New York reports:
Palin's channel will feature video commentaries from the former Republican vice-presidential candidate, discussing current events and political issues. It will also have advice and guidance from Palin, such as tips for parents and recipes. There are also tentative plans to have subscribers engage in regular video chats with Palin.
Tapp paints a picture of what to expect, with...topics like 'paranormal,' 'faith,' 'relationships,' 'fantasy sports' and 'science.'
The question remains whether Palin's channel, like Beck's, will be home to co-hosts and additional personalities offering commentary. And while Palin is currently a contributor to FOX, it's unknown what impact Rogue TV will have on that fact.
"Think of it as a video version of her Facebook page," said an anonymous source involved with the project.
Media observers have pointed out that for Beck, "The Blaze TV" has been a massive financial success and established him as a brand name all his own. But it's also cut him off from the mainstream press, making him arguably less influential. Of course in Palin's case, she's already perceived to be irredeemably on the outs with the "lamestream" media, making Rogue TV a less risky proposition reputation-wise.
