Diddy has big plans for Revolt TV
Sean "Diddy" Combs' all-music channel went live Oct. 21, and it shows potential to be just as successful as his music career, fashion line and Ciroc vodka venture. Nearly 22 million Comcast customers and 12 million Time Warner subscribers now get Revolt TV in their homes, making this one of the most significant cable launches in years, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
In an interview with The Breakfast Club on Power 105, Diddy revealed his reason for starting the channel, which is geared toward the18- to 34-year-old generation of "cord-cutters."
"I saw there was no ESPN of music, no CNN of music, there was no one trusted destination for music," he said, as quoted by Hot New Hip Hop. "Our whole thing is also having enough fearlessness to play what doesn't usually normally get play."
Beyond his aspirations for Revolt TV to become the central source for all hip hop news, he plans to have panel discussions where leaders in the industry can debate hip hop issues.
