Subscription streaming service moves to television
By Andrea Morabito -- Broadcasting & Cable, 9/12/2012 10:28:22 AM
The channel will be available as part of Dish's America's Top 250 package starting Sept. 12 at 5 p.m., or offered to subscribers a la carte for $5 a month starting Thursday. The move puts TheBlaze, which launched as the online-only subscription service GBTV a year ago, alongside news networks like MSNBC, CNN and Beck's former home, Fox News.
"After being phenomenally successful with his online streaming network, we're pleased to host Glenn Beck's return to broadcast TV, especially during this exciting and important political season," said Dish CEO and president Joseph Clayton. "With Glenn's return, Dish is truly the one stop for news, opinion and perspective across the full political spectrum."
In addition to Beck's eponymous show, TheBlaze features an opinion show hosted by Andrew Wilkow, reality show Independence USA, kids' show Liberty TreeHouse, news show Real News and comedy news show The B.S. of A. The network will continue to be offered as an online subscription service on TheBlaze.com and Internet-connected devices.
