Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs has set a launch date for his cable network, Revolt TV, which will be distributed through Comcast and was co-founded by former MTV programming chief, Andy Schuon. It will make its debut in July. Currently, the channel will only be on Comcast, but Diddy plans on expanding it to other cable providers.
The network will be “the first channel created entirely from the ground up in this new era of social media,” Combs said in a statement obtained by the Los Angeles Times. “We’re building this platform for artists to reach an extraordinary number of people in a completely different way.
