Newsmax TV channel is a 24-hour cable news television network in America. It was launched in 2012 and is owned by Norman Levy, an investor in the media industry, who founded it as an alternative to what he believed were negative news outlets. The channel is part of the Newsmax brand, which also includes a website and a radio network. It has gained popularity due to its focus on conservative opinions and commentary, and its pro-Trump bias. Its major hosts include JD Hayworth, Grant Stinchfield, and Greg Kelly.

The channel was initially more focused on Middle East news but later shifted its focus to politics in the United States. It had some success as an opinion-based channel, with some viewers citing it as an alternative to mainstream media outlets.

Newsmax has been accused of propagating conspiracy theories, and it has been accused of being “far-right” and ultra-conservative. However, the channel has also been praised for its coverage on issues such as the birther movement, Obama’s birth certificate and Benghazi.

The network boasts an impressive list of personalities including former Republican Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, former Republican Governor Mike Huckabee, and former U.S. Congressman Joe Walsh. In addition, the channel has partnered with former Fox News host Greta Van Susteren, and former Fox & Friends host Kimberly Guilfoyle as well as former U.N. Ambassador and former Secretary of State John Bolton.

Newsmax TV is available to more than 60 million households in the US via cable system, cable-replacement services, satellite systems, and telco-TV services like AT&T TV, Verizon FiOS, and CenturyLink Prism. It is also available as a streaming service on Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Roku and Android TV.

Newsmax has had a successful start since its launch in 2012, and its interviews and news coverage generate a lot of interest in some conservative circles. It has a dedicated audience and is considered to be an alternative to the mainstream media.
