Little-known One America News Network acknowledged the outage at 3:45 p.m. PT on Friday, citing widespread anticipation in the interviews.
“So much interest in the interview of Donald J. Trump, Jeb Bush, and Ted Cruz tonight by Sarah Palin at 10 pm EST that you crashed the oann.com website! It will be up shortly – Thank you for the interest in One America News Network,” read the post.
Despite the fact OAN is only available in 12 million U.S. households, the interview is generating tremendous interest largely on the drawing power of Trump. Then there’s the appeal of Palin, who is serving as guest host for the OAN series “On Point.”
In addition to its TV home, OAN is also available for streaming via an app on Roku and Amazon Fire.
