All Warrior Network: Indie Entertainment Around Military Topics

”Emma Watson or Scarlett Johannson? Only thing is Emma is a fish from the waist down, and Scarlett is a sloth from the waist up…”. Or “Hey, why’s the bathroom smell like Jergens and shame?”. These are some of the many gems that can be found in the All Warrior Network, a veteran owned and operated streaming entertainment channel. My editor asked me to do a review on All Warrior Network, and I’m glad he did.

About

All Warrior Network has a ton of channels all with a varying amount of content. You should easily be able to find something that fits your mood. All Warrior Network is not ad based so you won’t have annoying ads pop up in the middle of the video (or at the start), and you don’t have blinking, flashing distractors all over the site (though the Weekly SITREP does plug supporters and AWN swag).

The content is organized into a series of channels. Some content is a standalone piece and some are series based. The site is very clean, and the content streams with no problems (I was on both high-speed hard line, as well as tethered to a slower cell network).

Accessing All Warrior Network

It is no secret that I am firmly in Camp Apple, so learning that All Warrior Network has a dedicated AppleTV app was great. You can also access the content on any of your other favorite devices, iOS, Android, Roku, and, if you have not yet joined the technical revolution in media, via a browser.

The Content

There are a number of channels to choose from, from full movies to weekly news to pretty fun animations. Some of the content is definitely humorous and some can hit pretty close to home and be hard to watch.

There were very few things that I found to be “meh”, but I tend to appreciate most things and have a pretty eclectic taste. My personal favorites were:

  • Weekly SITREP which is reminiscent of AFT (but without out the action figures)
  • Swiine, a series of funny shorts about the professional lives of a Marine Special Operations Command Sniper Team
  • All of the content in the “Modern Warfare” channel.
  • “The Ranger” was pretty rough to watch but good.

You will find some of the videos in a few different categories, and much could be construed as Not Safe For Work (depending on where you work).

My biggest disappointment was that there was not more comedy available (though the “Weekly SITREP” has some amazing gems), but I did find that a number of the content pieces that had “funnies” were not also categorized in comedy.

Finis

As I said before, I am glad I was given the opportunity to explore and consume from All Warrior Network. I had never heard of it prior to being assigned the review, and I can say that a majority of the content is pretty good. There is a decent amount of content to watch, in a number of different genres, and is a refreshing break from fanboy YouTube drivel.

They offer a seven-day free trial. After that, the cost is $6.99 per month (and they, as of the time of this writing, offer a discount for paying for a full year). Understand that online media is a chicken/egg concept. Good content costs real money to produce, and there is a critical tipping point where you have enough supporters to be able to fund and sustain new content, which then brings new supporters, etc. All Warrior Network is not ad based (though they do have a swag shop) and they have a pretty decent amount of content—enough so that I didn’t run out of stuff to watch during the few months I’ve had access.

Tom is a former Navy Corpsman that spent some time bumbling around the deserts of Iraq with a Marine Recon unit, kicking in tent flaps and harassing sheep. Prior to that he was a paramedic somewhere in DFW, also doing some Executive Protection work between shifts. Now that those exciting days are behind him, he has embraced his inner “Warrior Hippie” and assaults 14er in his sandals and beard, or engages in rucking adventure challenges while consuming craft beer. To fund these adventures, he writes medical software and builds websites and mobile apps. His latest venture is as one of the founders of IronSights.com; a search engine for all things gun related. He hopes that his posts will help you find solid gear that will survive whatever you can throw at it–he is known (in certain circles) for his curse…ahem, ability…to find the breaking point of anything.

    “Hey, why’s the bathroom smell like Jergens and shame?” BWAHAHAHA

  • Don Ward

    That feeling when you find out there is a new firearms channel but it’s only for “Warriors”. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/22c9a84fbc75b31569186f7cc11515d5eba49c4d6d9a13dfd05011c151644c20.jpg

      Oh I think anyone can enjoy it (I know you were being tongue in cheek). You’ll just appreciate some of the “insider” stuff more with prior service.

      • Anonymoose

        I think he may be referring to the fact that you have to pay. You don’t have to be a super-secret Delta Seal to enjoy watching Larry Vickers jiggling in slow motion, or nutnfancy having seizures, or some beardie guy taking factory tours of places that are going to be shut down a week later because of legal negligence or poor quality control, but hell if I’m paying for that.

      • Don Ward

        Wait. You mean I don’t have to be a Warrior to watch? And here I got all dressed up for nothing! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/4cf3ec88cb994d6fffb368f3cbbb676c8bce45db532dc30d6e1e9807793e6d92.jpg

    This sounds like something off a background gag from Futurama selling a lifestyle to mall ninjas.

    “Emma Watson or Scarlett Johannson”
    both are amazing people, & why the hell are we talking about them on a firearm blog?

    • Anonymoose

      I play a similar game with some of my coworkers, only we go back further in history to when the women we’re talking about were actually hot and didn’t have any kids yet.

      Because is tangentially related to a discussion a couple of snipers were having to stay alert on a video network that has a bunch of military and firearms related content… 🙂
