A new all-vegan streaming TV network has arrived, and it’s poised to make a splash in mainstream media, while pushing the vegan movement forward.
Called Unchained TV, the platform features plant-based cooking shows, documentaries, talk shows, and breaking news. Films and TV series are also offered – including thrillers, adventure and conservation content – as well as music videos from vegan artists. The best part? Everything is free.
‘TV without channel’
It comes as global streaming rates hit an all-time high, with more people seeking engaging and thought-provoking content from the comfort of their homes. And simultaneously, public interest in sustainable and compassionate lifestyles continues to grow.
Unleashed television unites these concepts, working to usher in a new era of plant-based cruelty-free living.
“We provide viewers with empowering content they can’t get on mainstream TV networks. We deliver solutions to the world’s biggest issues: the climate crisis, deforestation, wildlife extinction, human hunger and human diseases,” said network founder Jane Velez-Mitchell.
“People who click Unchained TV opens a window to a life-changing transformation.
Velez-Mitchell is no stranger to the television industry. An award-winning journalist, she has worked in mainstream media newsrooms for decades, including in New York and Los Angeles. She was her own host on CNN Headline News (HLN) for six years.
Velez-Mitchell wants to bring similar content to UnChainedTV, too much.
“We have the ability to go LIVE and have a whole slew of shows like any mainstream cable TV network, like CNN, MSNBC, Where FoxNews. This is the next step as we grow our vegan network,” said the entrepreneur. Plant Based News.
“Having worked in national cable television, as well as syndicated television and local news, I know how a network operates and grows and we are going to make that happen for this vital information. The technology is in place and that’s the hardest part. So now we’re ready to roll,” she continued, adding that they’re building the “vegan CNN.”
Viewers are ‘hungry for solutions’
Velez-Mitchell believes people are ready for change, but are denied access to information that could inspire it.
“People are seeing firsthand the consequences of our failing food system and they’re hungry for solutions because it’s no longer hypothetical,” she explained. “But, they don’t get those solutions on the mainstream cable networks that are beholden to their big advertisers, like fast food and Big Pharma.”
“Meanwhile, wildfires, drought, extreme weather…it’s already happening to viewers, along with a health care crisis and the potential for food shortages,” she continued.
Unchained TV aims to serve as a springboard for positive action for the planet and respectful of animals, by arming the masses with often hidden knowledge.
“We offer solutions to these growing problems through an engaging infotainment system. Given that the organizers of COP26 have been widely condemned for serving meat, we now have a mandate to say… Here’s how. Discover how easy it is to turn to plants. Let’s do this!” Vélez-Mitchell said.
What’s up ?
“We’re not just going to air documentaries and cooking shows,” Velez-Mitchell explained. “We will do breaking news daily.”
And the platform is already delivering. UnChainedTV’s The COP26 correspondent has a breaking report on Extinction Rebellion’s powerful Die-In in Glasgow. “We cover issues ignored by mainstream television, like the hypocrisy of serving meat at a climate summit,” the company explains.
UnChainedTV’s COP26 coverage is available in the Featured and News section.
The latest season of the platform’s own award-winning plant-based cooking show is also freshly released, new day new leader. The TV series features vegan chef and entrepreneur Miyoko Schinner, owner of dairy-free cheese brand Miyoko’s Creamery.

Velez-Mitchell hosts the cooking shows alongside various plant-based celebrities. These include NBA star John Salley, Olympian Dotsie Bausch, star trek actress Gianna Simone, America’s Next Top Model Katie Cleary and ITUC Jorja Fox.
