Sean “Diddy” Combs’ Revolt Channel Secures Distribution Deal With AT&T U-verse

This is quite revolutionary by REVOLT TV! Not only are they taking themselves beyond being a television channel, but actually setting themselves up to being a network.

Especially with music channels struggling to keep with the internet, its great to see how REVOLT has embraced the change, unlike other networks.

Deadline

With a current reach of just 25 million pay TV homes, the music channel founded by Sean “Diddy” Combs and co-owned with Comcast needs all of the additional distribution it can secure.

Under today’s deal with AT&T, U-Verse will add Revolt to the U300 bundle beginning July 27. AT&T picks up VOD and streaming rights to the channel. The alliance suggests that the channel might find a welcome mat at DirecTV, which AT&T will acquire once federal regulators give the green light.

“This is a historical day for Revolt,” Combs says. “With a major player like AT&T, more people will be able to access the hottest music and original content on every screen and device. This agreement shows the world that Revolt is a force in the media industry.”

AT&T Home Solutions CMO Mel Coker calls Revolt “a great fit as we strive to bring our customers the content they want, when and where they want it.”

This requires rigorous practice and recitations to play characters, without the aid of verbal communication and expression. Hence, it should be no so surprise that Nicole was able to seamlessly transit into acting.

Music as the common epicentre, between dance and film productions alike, brought about this showcase of Ms Fortuin to illustrate the inter-connectivity of entertainment at large. As she is also the first female feature on the Lavatory Records publication, this interview is ground-breaking and pioneering in more ways than one.
