According to Beck's website, GBTV will be a streaming network featuring a daily two-hour show, hosted by Beck. GBTV will also feature "a wide range of original and licensed information and entertainment programming."

"GBTV is the future," Beck said in a statement. "The confines of traditional media no longer apply. GBTV is about getting active in the community, participating in stories, and finding new ways to deliver news, information and entertainment directly to the audience."

GBTV subscriptions start at $4.95 a month for access to Beck's daily show. For $9.95 a month, users can get GBTV Plus, which offers access to the entire network including radio offerings, documentaries and specials.

Beck's Mercury Radio Arts will continue its partnership with Clear Channel Radio with GBTV being available on 100 of Clear Channel's spoken word stations.

"We've had a long history of success with every business that Glenn and Mercury have brought to us," John Hogan, president and CEO of Clear Channel Radio said in a statement. "We're thrilled to be able to provide a broad promotional platform for GBTV and to promote Mercury's vision of the future to millions of consumers."

He's pricing too high. At $2/month for GB++ people would try it, even if they are only occasional viewers. At $10/month that is valuing it the same as Hulu Plus or Netflix streaming.
