ConnectNetwork Newsfeed


One of the best ways to help loved ones stay connected with the outside is by giving them access to breaking and daily news.

ConnectNetwork’s Newsfeed service keeps inmates informed with a running content feed from popular news providers such as:

  • ESPN
  • CNN
  • Fox News
  • NPR

Whether they have an interest in Sports, Politics, Finance, or World News, inmates are able get real-time, unlimited access to the biggest news stories via a tablet device (subject to facility availability).

This premium service is available as a 7-day, 14-day, and 30-day subscription, funded by deposits to an inmate’s Debit Link account.

How It Works

With access to a tablet, inmates can log in and use funds from their Debit Link account to purchase a Newsfeed subscription. The subscription gives inmates unlimited access to top news providers.

Once the subscription expires, access to Newsfeed is no longer available. Subscriptions can be extended or purchased again later with Debit Link funds for continual access and enjoyment.

What It Costs

Newsfeed is a premium tablet device service that requires funding via an inmate’s Debit Link account. Pricing and availability of each subscription type (7-day, 14-day, 30-day) is determined by the facility.

Ways To Pay
