Best answer: One America News Network — otherwise known as OANN — is available on AT&T TV, but not on its least-expensive plans.

Or maybe you just need a VPN?

Being able to watch what you want to watch from wherever you want to watch it is one of the most important things of being an American. It actually has nothing to do with the 1st Amendment or the Constitution, but don't let that stop you from getting a good VPN to keep the Deep State from having an easier time keeping track of your browsing and streaming habits.

Avoid the deep state

ExpressVPN is one of the easiest and affordable ways to watch what you want from anywhere you want to watch it. Plus it'll help keep your network traffic away from any prying eyes on public networks.

And it's a great way to watch all the all the things you want to watch —  from anywhere in the world.View Deal

What is OAN?

One America News Network — commonly known as OAN or OANN — is a "news" outlet that slants to the point of falling over. It's available on just a single streaming service — AT&T TV.

OAN mostly serves as a third-tier cheerleader for Donald Trump, unabashedly supporting his campaign for president in 2016 and casting doubt on the 2020 election. It routinely peddles conspiracy theories, such as Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich being killed to keep quiet about Hillary Clinton's misdeeds (he wasn't), or Parkland shooting survivor and advocate David Hogg not being authentic and somehow doing something on behalf of his retired-FBI-agent father (he is, and he wasn't), denying — on several occasions — chemical attacks in Syria (they happened), hiring right-wing "Pizzagate" and Seth Rich conspiracy theorist Jack Posobiec, consistent smears against philanthropist George Soros, COVID-19 being started in a North Carolina laboratory (it wasn't), and promoting conspiracy theories about Trump being wiretapped. (He wasn't — at least certainly not illegally.)

And that's just for starters. More recently, OAN has found itself home to a documentary (in the loosest sense of the term) created by the MyPillow founder that purports to show how the 2020 election was "rigged" and swung to President Biden because of malfeasance by several voting machine companies. Those companies have since sued all kinds of people, but OAN took the MyPillow money anyway and threw a huge disclaimed in front of the video.

Make of that what you will.

It's relatively easy to avoid OAN, however, since it's only available on AT&T's streaming service. (That's in addition to Verizon FiOS.) And even then, it's not available on the two least expensive plans — PLUS and MAX — and is only available starting with the $69.99-a-month Entertainment plan.

OAN favors Trump and quickly became a favorite of Trump, being rewarded with a seat in the White House briefing room alongside NBC, C-SPAN, BBC World News, PBS News, CNN, ABC News, CBS News and Fox News, on the television front, and the Associated Press, Reuters, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, The New York Times, USA Today and others on the print side.

On June 9, 2020, Trump, apparently watching another round of unfounded conspiracy theories surrounding the demonstrations after the death of George Floyd in police custody, tweeted about video that showed a 75-year-old man being pushed backward to the ground by police in Buffalo, N.Y. The man hit his head and was bleeding profusely. He was hospitalized and released. Trump, including OANN, posited that the man "could be an ANTIFA provocateur," referring to a loosely affiliated "anti-fascist" group that has no real central organization.

That, of course, is nonsense. But you can find it on OANN.
