Revolt TV, the upcoming cable network led by Sean Combs, has finalized a national carriage agreement with Time Warner Cable (TWC), it was announced today. Together with previously announced distribution, this will make Revolt one of the largest launches in cable TV history when it goes live this fall.
Revolt TV will be available to Time Warner Cable customers when it launches in the fall. This broad reach is especially significant for Revolt TV in gaining early traction in major urban markets across the United States. Envisioned as a maverick television channel with an emphasis on music programming, live content and a robust social media component, Revolt TV is scheduled to launch in Fall 2013.
“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,” stated Revolt TV Founder and Chairman Sean Combs. “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.
From Andre Harrell, Vice Chairman of Combs Enterprises:
"I am excited about Revolt, for the first time there is a music channel with a real music man at the helm, and I know that Revolt would have Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke and I'm a God by Kanye West in full rotation…and that's exciting."
