Diddy Officially Announces Music-Themed TV Network REVOLT

UPDATE: Puffy plans to venture into music television by the end of the year.

From vodka entrepreneur to professional actor, Diddy has never been one to shy away from the chance to expand his brand. Now, the Bad Boy mogul is looking to branch into a new frontier with a music-themed television network Revolt.

According to Broadcasting Cable, Diddy is launching a new television network called Revolt on December 12, 2012. Sources indicate that Revolt will focus primarily on music and music videos, a la MTV.

Although there are few details about the kind of distributiong the network will receive, Revolt will reportedly be distributed by Comcast and Time Warner Cable service providers.

[January 21]

UPDATE: After news broke that Diddy planned to launch his music video network Revolt, the entertainment mogul has released a video announcing the news.

“I first like to say thank you to Comcast, Comcast Diversity Council and NBC for recognizing the importance of minority ownership of cable television,” he said. “I grew up watching BET, MTV, HBO and NBC, and I had a dream that one day I would get a chance, an opportunity to show my perspective coming from a musical standpoint.”

    he's making a promotion for his new network, by recording a video from his webcam.

    • land lord

      It doesnt matter,he could've made da vid with a camera phone. Just wait & C how dis network pops off. Diddy RARELY 1/2 as##s on anything potentially involving millions being generated. i.e. Ciroc,S Jean clothing,etc. Other than 106/Park we have nothing to enjoy musically. MTV totally dropped da ball.Get dat $$$ Diddy

    I hope this project fails and wipes Diddy clean. Him and Jay Z are bad for the culture. They are both greedy and don't give back to those who helped them get to the top.

    • Anonymous

      anyone that hates on Diddy & Jay-Z are usually lame ass niggaz.Jay makes good music & is whether you think so or not one of the greatest artists of all time.& diddy is a good actor.that dirty money shit diddy dropped was a club banger & a half.& has helped give us big

      What's even worse for the culture are idiots like ^^^ You don't know shit about Hip Hop, but one thing you did get right is all the other names...you just forgot P. Shitty and Gay-Z

    • Anonymous

      Shut up, fag. I'm not a fan of Diddy or Jay-Z, but I respect them, because they're two black men who went from nothing to something. They're good businessmen; that's why they're the richest rappers ever. "Him and Jay Z are bad for the culture." Diddy, I can sorta agree on, but Jay-Z is one of the most influential rappers in hip-hop. You wanna know who's really bad for the culture? YMCMB, MMG, Brick Squad, SODMG, Lil B, and every wack rapper and the people who dickride them. Those people are bad for the culture.

  • stilly

    as easy as it is to make the joke that mtv doesn't play music videos anymore, it's because no one would watch them. why sit and watch a video you don't necessarily want to watch on tv when you can go online and watch whatever you want. music lives online now and I think mtv figured that out a while ago. best of luck to diddy, but he is going to have to do more than just play music videos to get people to watch

    • Gringo

      It's not that people don't want to watch music videos on the TV. It's more likely that people don't want to sit in front of it for 4 hours and maybe see something they like. If they would bring back the themed program format, then I would propably sit in front of the TV watching YO MTV Raps ilke I used to do. But I'm sure as hell not watching two to three hours of Lady Gaga to see a 3 minute clip of Pop Hop as a reward. That's where they really dropped the ball.. Not everyone likes generic pop shit.

    all its gon show is da same videos rick ross,drake, lil wayne da same bullshit we see on mtv and bet

  • Andre Cooper is a bitch

    Okay. I will give the man this, he did mention that in 2012 he was going to make some BIG announcements and I was ready to call his bluff, but this is pretty big. Downfall is, his music channel is going to be biased, will probably play videos from his record label primarily and affiliates, and will try to dictate what's hot (but then again, so do BET, MTV and radio). I guess that's just another channel to add to the mix... Random clip from the Boondocks: "Maaaaaaan, FUCK BET, I'm going to go read a book..."

    • Big Dan

      Obviously, Bad Boy artists will get major shine on the network, but one, there aren't that many Bad Boy artists today, probably less than 5 and we are not gonna be shown the same 10 videos 24/7. Second, it takes MILLIONS and some serious pull that even Diddy by himself does not have, to launch a cable network. Companies like Home and Garden (HGTV), etc, that are already in the business, launch new networks and its a bit$$ and a half getting the cable companies to give them wide distribution (making it available in all their customers' homes nationwide), so its probably being backed by someone else with industry experience and Diddy is the front man and maybe minority investor, and so with all they would have gone through to get it off the ground, they'd know better than to give us All Diddy TV all the time. Its not a slam dunk, the Oprah network is struggling and this could too, although I've always said if someone was smart enough to give us an all music channel and ignore all the crap that MTV has detoured into, they'd probably be successful. Shoutouts to Diddy and on several posts about wanna be thug rappers, Suge knight, etc, I've stated that I wish our people would learn that that thuggish nonsense does not hold any promise. Where is Suge today and where is Diddy? That kid that used to dance in videos is on course to become one of the biggest entrepreneur in the country, while Suge is getting knocked out by people half his size. Let's wake up people. 10 years from now you gotta call me on the yatch, I thought I told you that we won't stop.

    I bet you there will be at least 5 different Making The Band Type shows on this network. Also the product placement of Ciroc will be absolutely fuckin everywhere. Diddy is to hip hop as Tyler Perry is to Comedy.

    • Big Dan

      Anonymous, all we know is that Diddy is launching a music channel, we did not get the programming guide, so how do you know what they will be showing for you to knock it?

      Need right now? Are you fucking out of your mind??? An unbiased, neutral-give everybody an opportunity channel with multiple genre programs (like 90's BET) is what's needed right now. This here is just another addition to pop culture that doesn't cater to the smaller demographics.

    • Revolt

      Why You Mad At The Idea Though? Neither MTV or BET Show Videos That Much Anymore...A Channel Like This Is Needed Right Now.
