American Atheists and the Roku – that little box that lets you watch TV through the internet – have forged an unholy alliance to bring us the AtheistTV network! The best part is that you don’t need a Roku to watch it. You can also get AtheistTV through their live stream starting at 7:00 PM tonight. I’m assuming they mean EST (I didn’t see it specified on their site either way).
Here’s what it says about programming for AtheistTV:
We have partnered with content creators in the atheist community to bring engaging and entertaining content to AtheistTV. We are working with experienced producers to develop new, original programming that will launch soon.
If you are interested in developing content or submitting existing content to AtheistTV, please contact us.
Current content partners include: the Richard Dawkins Foundation, the Atheist Community of Austin, American Atheists, The Friendly Atheist, and Keith Lowell Jensen.
I would suggest that anyone with a classy YouTube channel about atheism, skepticism, science, or anything else atheists care about contact AtheistTV about starting a show for the network. Like most fledgling Cable channels, I’m sure they are hungry for new content.
Good luck to AtheistTV. Please don’t suck. I hope people will check it out and give Roku a reason to keep it around.
EDIT: For those of you with a Roku, here is a direct link to add the channel.
