  • TMTG, the company behind Truth Social, is planning a streaming service to appeal to conservatives.
  • Programming will include "shows that embrace the Second Amendment" and "Trump-specific shows."
  • It will be "similar" to Netflix but will not "push some particular political ideology," an SEC filing says.

Trump Media & Technology Group, the company behind former President Donald Trump's social media app Truth Social, recently laid out their plans for a new 'non-woke' streaming service called TMTG+. 

The subscription-based streaming service is set to be a "non-woke alternative to the programs offered by streaming services" like Netflix and Disney+. However, it will not " insist that programming push some particular political ideology," according to an SEC filing from Digital World Acquisition Corp, a SPAC or "blank check" firm, set to merge with TMTG.

The streaming service will offer shows "that embrace the Second Amendment," "Trump-specific shows," and other topics that appeal to "conservative and/or libertarian views."

It will also offer podcasts.

"TMTG+ intends to offer programs including, but not limited to blue-collar comedy, cancelled shows, Trump-specific programming, faith-based shows, family entertainment, shows that embrace the Second Amendment, and news."

DWAC says TMTG+ will emphasize shows that "cancel 'cancel culture.'"

"Particularly, President Trump has stated that TMTG will stand up to 'cancel culture' and the 'self-righteous scolds.' Failure to realize this vision would adversely affect TMTG's brand and business prospects," the filing from DWAC said.

TMTG began posting job ads for producers on May 11 for its streaming service, Rolling Stone previously reported. 

TMTG's previous venture, Truth Social, has been scrutinized for multiple issues, ranging from outages to technical problems, and reports of censorship.

It has also been noted by DWAC multiple times that TMTG "may never achieve profitability." DWAC warned investors in a previous regulatory filing that Trump's history of failed business ventures meant that "There can be no assurances that TMTG will not also become bankrupt."

Representatives for TMTG did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
