The Sarah Palin Channel was an online TV news network devoted to the writings and personality of Sarah Palin that launched on July 27, 2014. [1] In addition to news, Palin stated that she shares "some of the fun that goes on in the Palin household and a lot of our adventures in the great outdoors." [2] Palin constructed the channel as a part of TAPP TV, a media company run by former CNN president Jonathan Klein and former NBCUniversal chairman Jeff Gaspin. [3]

The channel was available only by paid subscription, but the fee was waived for current U.S. service members. [4] Bristol Palin was among the bloggers for the channel. [5]

On July 4, 2015, Sarah Palin announced that she would shut the channel down in its current incarnation. [6] She said the channel would continue to create content and post videos on Facebook and her PAC site starting August 1, 2015. [6][ needs update]
