Diddy Takes His Revolt TV to Time Warner Cable
Sean "Diddy" Combs' upstart cable network, Revolt TV, has entered into a carriage agreement with Time Warner Cable, the music mogul said on Wednesday.
The new network will launch in fall 2013.
Founder and Chairman Combs said of the deal in a statement, "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."
Revolt TV is envisioned as a "maverick television channel with an emphasis on music programming, live content and a robust social media component," according to its website.
In February 2012, Comcast announced that Revolt would be one of four new minority-owned independent networks broadly distributed by the cable provider.
