Some of the material
seen on Pirate TV is obtained from other sources but most of it is locally
produced and owned by me. You can watch the stuff produced in the last
decade for free on You Tube, Archive.org or by downloading the older ones
as WMV files. Many times people want a hard copy. You can obtain a
copy of any of these shows for a $20 donation (includes postage). To
obtain DVDs, contact me directly
and send me a check. Sorry, I'm low tech. Online purchases are not
possible at this time.
Pirate TV has been
producing a TV show every week for over 20 years. This is well over a
thousand shows. The mission is to "put back" what corporate
media filters out. I produce the book talk and lecture content
for Free Speech TV -the best channel on television- as well as provide content
for Alternative Radio. Contrary to what you might think, I don't
get paid for this. In fact it's the opposite. I support the cause
of independent media by providing the very best content. Producing Pirate
TV is almost a full time job and I have to live centrally in Seattle which has the highest rising housing costs in
the country to do this. I have been getting most of my funding for the
past few years from a very small grant, this year a got a third less. I
would rather not solicit donations by having fundraisers. I'm so busy
that I would have to hire someone to do that which I think would be
counterproductive. Finding more grants turns out to be much the same. I
don't have time. You will notice that I don't monetize my You Tube
content. Most of the money goes to You Tube -an evil media monopoly.
I would rather use them than have them use me. And I would rather
that my programs not be constantly interrupted by commercials. There are
thousands of people who watch and appreciate Pirate TV. If you are
one of them, why not kick in a little bit to support this media activism?
It doesn't take much. You'll feel better!
Pirate TV goes to 40m households on Free Speech TV via Direct and
Dish TV and other outlets. Many of these viewers live in rural red state
areas where access to high speed internet or any non corporate, or [non
right wing] propaganda media for that matter is severely limited. I even
get calls from Puerto
