A 10-week fundraising campaign has been kickstarted for Means TV — a new generation of streaming service.
The post-capitalist initative is an attempt at freeing entertainment and media from their identities as for-profit and corporate services. The initative is launched by Naomi Burton and Nick Hayes — the individuals accredited to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's viral political campaign.
Means TV attempts to strongly align itself with leftist values as a "worker-owned media [...] that really threatens the hegemony" of corporate America. The streaming service is rooted in the idea of allowing creative communities to thrive and deliver a variety of diverse content to "leftist and left-curious viewers." The post-capitalist media project also plans to extend itself across YouTube "to counter the legions of right-wing content creators."
Means TV will be an affordable, subscription-based service that costs $10 USD per month.
