Oxford Union President Corey Dixon is in negotiations to launch an online television channel featuring speaker events and debates hosted at the society.

The president announced on Monday to Standing Committee that he had been approached by fora.tv, a website where TV channels featuring live events, lectures, debates and conferences from universities around the world can be streamed online.

Users would need to pay a subscription fee to access the channel – with Union members eligible for a discount. A full proposal is to be considered next week, but the channel could potentially bring the Union in excess of £10,000 in revenue per annum.
