Stephen Colbert wants in on Sarah Palin’s new pay-to-watch channel.

The former governor of Alaska recently launched her online subscription channel, which will cover “the ideas Washington doesn’t want you to hear.” Colbert, in his signature satirical way, poked fun at the idea on The Colbert Report.

Colbert mocked the Palin channel’s $9.95 per month subscription cost, comparing it with Netflix’s cheaper subscription model, adding, “It’s just as good as House of Cards, with even more threatening monologues into camera.”

After calling the Palin’s online venture, “a safe space where like-minded folks can hear something they already agree with from someone whose opinion they already know,” Colbert revealed his own new subscription channel, “Stephen Colbert’s Angry Echo Chamber.”

Colbert ended the segment by revealing that he’d purchased “TheSarahPalinChannel.com,” a domain name just a definite article away from Palin’s own “SarahPalinChannel.com.”
