Diddy announces his TV network, Revolt, has finalized a national carriage deal with Time Warner Cable.
As Diddy continues the expansion of his Bad Boy empire, he's been venturing into all forms of media, including television. He announced last year the start of his own TV network, Revolt, and today news comes in that the network has finalized a national carriage agreement with Time Warner Cable. This, along with the already announced distrubtion for Revolt, will make the launch of the network in the Fall one of the biggest ever.
As a press release states, Revolt will launch in the Fall of 2013, and will focus its programming "on live performances, music videos, news and interviews, as well as offering talk shows and original series, with a mission to equally reflect and impact popular and music culture."
Sean "Diddy" Combs spoke on the exciting new venture, calling it a landmark distrubtion deal.
"This is a landmark distribution deal that demonstrates Time Warner Cable’s commitment to bringing a platform for music artists and fans to their subscribers," the music mogul said. "It positions Revolt to come out of the gate strong, and we look forward to igniting the passion of initial audiences across the U.S.” With Time Warner Cable’s help nothing is stopping Revolt from becoming the new number one name in music."
