Sarah Palin to End $99 Subscriptions to Her Online Channel
In a video message announcing the end of the Internet endeavor, Palin told her viewers that it was "an honor to have you subscribe."
Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has decided to pull the plug on her 1-year-old subscription-based Internet operation, SarahPalinChannel.com.
In a video message announcing the end of the Internet endeavor, Palin told her viewers, “It is an honor to have you subscribe, really it’s been so illuminating and still is so illuminating to read and to respond to many of your insightful comments about current events, about so many things going on in our world today.” Palin, who also has lost her spot on Fox News, still will make her views available for free on her Facebook page.
She also has signed a contract with conservative publisher Regnery for a new book of short meditations applying biblical principles to such contemporary issues as economics and human trafficking.
Palin was charging subscribers to SarahPalinChannel.com $10 per month to receive commentary that cuts “through the media’s politically correct filter.” It's unclear how many subscribers had signed up for the service.
Those who’d paid $99.95 for an annual subscription will have the remainder of their money refunded, though they’re also being offered the chance to switch to one of a basket of other Internet channels. Those include New Life TV, which allows viewers to “recharge your relationships and grow closer to God” or K-Love TV, which is devoted to Christian rock, inspiration and family values.
