OAN was dropped from DirecTV on April 5 after their carriage deal was also not renewed. OAN is still carried on Alaska’s General Communications Inc. and digital platform Vidgo, which together provide less than 200,000 subscribers.
The channel is also available on the free live streaming service KlowdTV.
In lieu of cable subscriptions, OAN has also made a pivot to streaming. Next TV reports that OAN “is now selling itself via a live-streaming 24/7 direct-to-consumer app for $4.99 a month, $53.85 a year,” called OAN Plus.
Alex Kopacz, Executive Vice President of Content Distribution and Strategy at the network, told Next TV that “We have been incredibly encouraged by the momentum that our OAN Plus channel is building in broadcast and we continue to hear that the significance and relevance of the OAN brand is valuable.”
