Trump Media and Technology Group (TMTG) is planning to launch a subscription-based streaming service called “TMTG+” that features “non-woke content ” and aims to “cancel cancel culture”. It is also committed to not censoring content creators for their political ideology. This official document was released on 16th May by Former President Donald Trump’s media and technology company.
Trump’s official statement
“TMTG believes that there is a need for quality programming that does not lecture its viewers or only presents one ‘acceptable’ approach on a topic. Entertainers, comedians, and creators have frequently been agents for change in our society. As the large media conglomerates become increasingly monolithic in their views, they cancel those who disagree, and voices are silenced,” the filing stated.
According to the official document, the programming will be “similar” to Netflix, and will feature “blue-collar comedy, cancelled shows, Trump-specific programming, faith-based shows, family entertainment, shows that embrace the Second Amendment, and news.” No indication regarding the launch date of the platform is made in the document.
According to the statement, the streaming platform is one of TMTG’s growth techniques for becoming a “fully integrated media and technology company” to “rival the liberal media consortium and promote free expression on all issues”.
What’s special about the new streaming service?
TMTG+ will also have a special feature. It will have a podcast platform as a part of its streaming service.
“Whether it be Hollywood, news media, search engines, payment processing. These are all areas that I think that people could get cancelled. Americans could get cancelled if they don’t pay homage to the proper woke God. Those are the things that we’re going to fight against,” Devin Nunes, CEO of Truth Social and former Republican Congressman, told Epoch TV’s “American Thought Leaders” program in an interview earlier this year.
“We’re probably the last best chance at this point to establish that beachhead, to give people their voice back,” Nunes said.
Donald Trump’s statement
“The new age of censorship is a disaster for our country. Things were far better in the days when we had our debates fiercely and openly, and then we could move forward together, as Americans, with both sides knowing that their voice, and their best arguments, had been heard,” Trump said in an October statement.
“In the end, a small number of powerful people who all think the same and wish to silence anyone who thinks differently cannot be trusted to control almost every major media, technology, and entertainment company in America,” Trump said. “I am determined to break their chokehold over the voices of the American People—not just for myself and my supporters, but for the United States of America!”
Trump is optimistic about the success of the streaming service
Trump’s media and technology company (TMTG) also seems very confident in the planned streaming service. They reportedly noted at an investor presentation in 2021 that they predicted 40 million subscribers by 2026. A statement made by the company stated that the price would likely compete with Netflix’s prices due to Trump’s “highly enthused base.”
Meanwhile, Donald Trump’s followers can keep up with the former president of the United States on his social media platform Truth Social. Trump has said that he would never return to Twitter after he was banned permanently from the platform. Since then he has been consistently posting on his Truth Social account. Once he had stated that he launched TMTG and Truth Social to “stand up to the tyranny of Big Tech. We live in a world where the Taliban has a huge presence on Twitter, yet your favourite American President has been silenced. This is unacceptable.”
