One America News Faces Streaming Pressure as DirecTV Deal Ends

  • App installations decline while YouTube restricts ad sales
  • Herring Networks hires new executive to help with distribution

DirecTV’s decision to drop One America News Network puts pressure on the conservative cable outlet to replace that lost revenue, possibly by building out its online presence.

That will be a steep hill to climb. The number of people installing OAN’s app has plummeted in the past year after surging around the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol. Meanwhile, YouTube doesn’t promote OAN’s videos and has suspended the outlet from selling ads after it violated its policies on misinformation.
