Glenn had been hinting at some big announcements coming today to celebrate the one year anniversary of TheBlaze TV, but no one could have predicted that he meant network was going to be distributed nationwide on cable and satellite providers across the country! The New York Times had the earliest details – be sure to tune in Wednesday morning for more on this exciting dvelopment!

Below is an excerpt from Brian Stelter’s article at the New York Times:

Glenn Beck is bringing his brand of conservative commentary back to the television set.

One year after embracing an Internet-only distribution model, Mr. Beck is repositioning his streaming network, TheBlaze TV, as an offering for cable and satellite operators — in other words, TV the old-fashioned way.

On Wednesday, he will announce an agreement with the Dish Network, the first of what his company hopes will be many such deals.

TheBlaze TV, an Internet television network, will remain available via the Web for its 300,000 paying subscribers, including those not subscribing to Dish. But the distribution deal with Dish gives Mr. Beck, formerly a host on Fox News, a new way to reach viewers that may be adopted by other Internet entrepreneurs seeking a way into traditional television.

“Our success over the past year has given us the ability to go on traditional television while maintaining complete creative control and freedom and remaining at the center of the Internet revolution,” Mr. Beck said.

    I really don’t know if I will go back to sat. or cable TV. I think as long as The Blaze TV is on the net, I will continue watching there. Besides, we cannot get any satellite reception at our house. Cable is our only option. I am thrilled that finally Mr. Beck will be able to reach the huge market that has been missing him. Congratulations !!

    Everyone with DirectTV write the company and request they also get TheBlaze TV.
    It was a big disappointment when Beck left FoxNews as it was available on DirectTV.
    If DirectTV gets enough feedback from subscribers it should help them decide.

      I’m a 17 year customer with DirecTv. I have already wrote them that they need to get it or I might have to switch to Dish.

    GBTV can’t be going to DISH!! No really! I heard that Glenn’s career was all but dead and that we’d never, ever hear from him again.

    Wait a minute, does this mean that the Socialist media is [Gulp] wrong?!

    HOLY CRAP!! Aren’t they now saying that Romney has no chance of winning??

    I don’t feel so well………

    If there is one thing that cable and satellite companies need, it’s viewers! Previously, my only reason for keeping Directv was for ESPN, FOX News, Velocity, and the occasional ball game on a cable channel. Now, assuming Direct picks up this new channel, I’ll have one more reason to keep it. This is good on all levels.
