Diddy posts a video today to confirm that he is indeed creating a new music themed television network.
The cable network will be called 'Revolt'
and will launch late this year.
Diddy released this statement: "Revolt
is the first channel created entirely from the ground up in this new
era of social media. We're building this platform for artist to reach
extraordinary number of people in a completely different way. Combs
continued, Revolt will be live, like all great moments in the television
Although it was hinted that Time Warner would distribute the network, Comcast
announced Tuesday that it would be the distributor of a "Combs–backed
network". Reports were also accurate about Diddy teaming up with MTV
veteran Andy Schuon.
The network will infuse music, news and pop culture
including music videos, live performance and interviews.
Diddy joins other moguls like Oprah Winfrey and Magic Johnson
with TV networks.
Be on the lookout for 'Revolt' late this year.
What do you guys think, are you excited for 'Revolt' and too see what it can do for "new artists"?
