TMTG finishes R&D on its own content delivery network, announcing plans for phased streaming introduction

SARASOTA, Fla., April 16, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Trump Media & Technology Group Corp. (NASDAQ:DJT) (“TMTG” or the “Company”), operator of the social media platform Truth Social, announced today that after six months of testing on its Web and iOS platforms, the Company has finished the research and development phase of its new live TV streaming platform and will begin scaling up its own content delivery network (“CDN”).

TMTG plans to roll out its streaming content in three phases:

  • Phase 1: Introduce Truth Social’s CDN for streaming live TV to the Truth Social app for Android, iOS, and Web.
  • Phase 2: Release stand-alone Truth Social over-the-top (“OTT”) streaming apps for phones, tablets, and other devices.
  • Phase 3: Release Truth Social streaming apps for home TV.

The streaming content is expected to focus on live TV including news networks, religious channels, family-friendly content including films and documentaries; and other content that has been cancelled, is at risk of cancellation, or is being suppressed on other platforms and services.

“We’re excited to move forward with the next big phase for Truth Social,” said TMTG CEO Devin Nunes. “With our streaming content, we aim to provide a permanent home for high-quality news and entertainment that face discrimination by other channels and content delivery services. There is a lot of great content that simply can’t find an audience for unjust reasons, and we want to let these creators know they’ll soon have a guaranteed platform where they won’t be cancelled.”

Much like the Truth Social platform, the Company's CDN is intended to operate efficiently, cost-effectively and independent of Big Tech. The network is designed to be user friendly, incorporating cutting edge technology to optimize speed, performance, and security for video streaming while minimizing interruptions. TMTG’s CDN is expected to greatly enhance and expand Truth Social, an iconic Trump brand whose free-speech mission resonates deeply with its community of users and supporters.

About TMTG

The mission of TMTG is to end Big Tech's assault on free speech by opening up the Internet and giving people their voices back. TMTG operates Truth Social, a social media platform established as a safe harbor for free expression amid increasingly harsh censorship by Big Tech corporations.
