Diddy Launches Music Television Network "REVOLT TV" Today

”We don't have new rules. We have NO rules..."

After Sean "Puff Daddy, P. Diddy, Diddy" Combs announced the venture months ago, I am pleased to say...

”...Having enough fearlessness to play.. what isn’t.. what doesn’t usually normally get played. All the different alternative artists we gonna be multi genre. Especially in hip hop you know like Travis Scott. or say back in the days.. you know 2 years ago.. ASAP Rocky. When people were just discovering them on you tube.
We’re gonna really kinda curate and be a platform for new aspiring artists to grow for graphic designers, for shooters, really for the culture. But we’re gonna raise the bar.. from a performance level and from a video level to make sure that we have a bar of excellence that you have to achieve in order to get played on REVOLT.
Our focus for the first I would say 6 to 12 months is to be the number one destination for music.. for people that want to see music.."
”There was no CNN of music. There was no one trusted destination...."

REVOLT TV launches tonight @ 8pm EST for Comcast and TimeWarner cable customers in the cities of Los Angeles, New York City, and Chicago. While it has started off small, the channel locations will expand as the station progresses. If you need to find out the channel for your city, visit Revolt.Tv. For those who do not live in either of the three cities listed, you can watch the launch via live stream on the website as well.

As an avid music lover, I am extremely excited about the network station and what it WILL do for our culture. While Diddy explains that the network will show music videos about 80% of the time (of different genres), it's clear REVOLT will concentrate more on the culture compared to the typical (no shade) MTV, BET,
or VH1 "music network channels" nowadays that show more redundant topiced television shows than actual music. This channel will give our music culture a voice from different genres and aspects while actually keeping focus on the key word: MUSIC! To top all of this off, it humbles me that a black man is behind this. We will continue to make history. #Proud.

A few celebrities showed their support for REVOLT this morning via Twitter.

I see great things this and several doors opening. Support the movement and tune in tonight! In addition to tuning in, check out Diddy's interview with the Breakfast Club this morning where he goes into detail about the direction of REVOLT.
