Tucker Carlson is launching his own streaming service, dubbed Tucker Carlson Network or TCN, the former Fox News host announced in a video clip on his website on Monday.
The site will charge $9 per month — $6 as an initial promotion price — for access to Carlson’s interviews, videos and films, five new shows, a weekly Q&A and his “personal inbox to ask him anything that’s on your mind.”
Carlson started a free show on X in June, following his ouster from Fox days after Fox agreed to pay $787.5 million to settle a $1.6-billion defamation suit lodged by Dominion Voting Systems.
TCN’s FAQ says Carlson will continue to post clips on X and other social platforms, but that tuckercarlson.com will be home to his “full library of independent work.”
On X, Carlson has interviewed controversial figures including Hungary's dictatorial prime minister Viktor Organ and, last week, InfoWars host Alex Jones (above). Jones was fined nearly $1.5 billion in court cases brought by relatives of Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting victims for damages resulting from his broadcasting conspiracy theories denying that massacre.
Carlson also interviewed Donald Trump and is now supporting his bid for a second presidency, although Carlson previously described Trump in texts as a “demonic force” and a “disaster” as a president, whose behavior after losing the 2020 election was “disgusting.”
In announcing the streaming launch, Carlson said that “something big is coming” — mentioning the presidential election and supposed “entire populations” migrating to new locations — and claimed that “big media companies won’t help” his fans understand these developments.
