It’s time. We are now ready to open up an official 21WIRE Membership and subscription drive to our readers and listeners. This has been a long time in the making but we feel we are ready now. After six years of gradually building up our website from a simple WordPress blog, now into a fully functioning, leading alternative news and analysis website, as well as developing a LIVE weekly radio show currently in its third broadcast year – we believe it’s time to begin the process of taking our independent media network to a higher level. We believe this needs to happen now and we will need your support to gradually build, maintain and grow our operation.
We’ve got some pretty big goals, but we need your help to get there. We want to provide a better experience to our readers and listeners. To start this process, we are developing a few new areas: a 21WIRE mobile app and a 21WIRE online e-commerce shop with our own merchandise, as well as from our close affiliates, and an online bookstore area with our editors’ recommended reading list.
Special premium content for members only including:
- New mid-week podcast (premiering in June 2016)
- Fortnightly ‘global affairs situation report’ (delivered to your inbox and on this site)
Discount on all items sold in our upcoming 21WIRE online shop including:
- 21WIRE T-Shirts
- Coffee mugs
- In-store books
- Special events
There’s more. Later this year, we would like to launch our own on-demand digital TV platform – accessible for you, our members, and configured for both online viewing and also through your home and smart TV entertainment systems. This is no light undertaking and it will require some addition resources and technical support, and it will take a few months to develop. We believe we can launch this channel and keep it a sustainable once we have reached the 300 members mark. We are not sure how long it will take to reach that mark, but after we have amassed our Force of 300, we believe we’ll be able to launch a BETA version of our digital TV channel and provide members with the following:
- Premium video and audio content
- Sunday Wire Radio Show in stereo surround sound
- Curated documentary films & a special preview screenings for members only
- Development of regular new video productions and reports
- Brand new season of 21st Century Wire TV show (2017)
After we launch our TV channel, in 2017 we will also begin looking at starting some live virtual conferences, including panel discussions and debates and events in 2017. This could be followed by a LIVE event in a city to be announced.
Our core mission: We are still determined and dedicated to continually improving your online experience with what we are already doing – through our daily news and analysis output at 21st Century Wire and also Sunday Wire Show. This will remain our primary focus throughout this process and beyond, and to maintain this and keep up with the increasingly fast-pace of global news, we’ll need to gradually expanding our core crew. Our new membership subscriptions will be the main engine that will help to facilitate this ongoing effort.Get started with your 21WIRE Membership today!
