AOC TV: Millennial Couple Plans To Launch The Wokest Netflix-Like Service In America

A Detroit couple that helped AOC win her Congressional seat plan to launch the wokest Netflix-like streaming service in America.

Means TV will be an internet-only streaming service that will offer subscribers access for $10 per month to “anti-capitalist” and “pro-worker” socialist programming including talk shows, comedy sketches, and on-the-ground reporting.

So basically, imagine if Bernie Sanders and AOC had a TV network. This is what it would look like.

I find it very capitalist of them to offer monthly subscriptions to their content in order to make a profit so they can stay in business.  Sounds like something Donald Trump would do.

The streaming service is the creation of Naomi Burton, 29, and Nick Hayes, 22, that produced a campaign video for the Ocasio-Cortez campaign.

Their goal is to attract millennials and Generation Z with their socialist message.

The couple credited Bernie Sanders campaign for President helping them to get woke.

Currently, the streaming service is seeking donations to help get the service started with a planned late 2019 launch.

With so many young Americans flirting with the ideas of socialism and with the couple having access to AOC’s millions of followers on Twitter, this video streaming service has a chance to attract an audience.

This potential new streaming service is a good example of a point I made earlier that the church and Christians need to produce video content if they want to reach young Americans with a positive message. Read that article here.

Hallelujah! Netflix Plans To Produce Faith Based And Family Programming

Netflix has found religion. For many religious readers that may come as a shock considering the world’s largest streaming video on-demand service brought the world Frank Underwood and "Orange is the New Black."

Fox News reported that Netflix is planning to launch a slate of original faith and family-friendly programming that will be exclusive on the video service.

Netflix is spending $8 billion per year on programming according to reports so the company has the money to produce some high quality faith and family programming. No Christian filmmaker can come close to matching the resources of Netflix.  

I think Netflix producing original faith-based programming is a smart business move. There are millions of not only Americans but families around the world that would like to subscribe to the streaming service but won’t due to a lack of family-friendly program offerings. This is a business decision that Christians should support.

With the almost countless options viewers have for TV entertainment, producing quality shows is more important than ever. Having Christian shows on Netflix will take Christian entertainment to a new level and will possibly reach many viewers that otherwise would never watch Christian movies and shows because most non-Christians are not going to subscribe to a Christian video service. However, they will watch Netflix.

If Christians want to reach millennials and other nonbelievers with the gospel, there is no better way than through the media and no bigger service than Netflix to use to do it.
