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]
