Diddy’s Revolt TV Lands Major Deal With Verizon FiOS
Diddy is expanding Revolt TV's reach by landing a major deal with Verizon FiOS ahead of the network's one-year anniversary.
On Tuesday (Sept. 29), the entertainment mogul revealed details of the deal, which according to him, puts Revolt at the top of the list in the music television platforms space.
Beginning this month, Revolt, which launched on Oct. 21, 2013, will appear in FiOS TV’s Ultimate HD package on Channel 726 HD. The network will also be available on Verizon’s FiOS Mobile App.
Diddy was ecstatic to share the news with his supporters and stopped his workout to shout out the progressive business move. "Today's a great day. All Glory to god. Revolt has just closed a multi-platform distribution deal with Verizon FiOS," the New York native announced through screams of joy in an Instagram video.
In addition to his visual excitement, Diddy issued a statement about adding Verizon FiOS to Revolt’s growing list of cable providers. Time Warner Cable, Comcast, Centurylink and SuddenLink are also included.
The network, centered on music shows, interviews and news, is scheduled to hold its first music conference from Oct. 16-19 at the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach.
Read Diddy's statement below.
On Monday, September 29th we announced a deal with Verizon FiOS establishing REVOLT as the dominant player in music television today. Verizon’s vote of confidence marks another win for REVOLT and solidifies our place as the new #1 name in music. But our growth won’t stop here – we will continue to deliver a Millennial audience to cable providers across the country, building a platform that amplifies the art form and celebrates the culture of music.
With our late October debut on Verizon FiOS, REVOLT will now be available in 46 of the top 50 U.S. markets on Time Warner Cable, Comcast, Centurylink and SuddenLink. This timing is significant because it coincides with our one-year anniversary on-air. We have worked hard to get to this point and I am excited to celebrate this milestone at the inaugural REVOLT Music Conference Oct 16-19 in Miami Beach.
On this journey to make REVOLT a household name, we are most excited to join a cable provider that understands and programs for young adults. As we have set the goal to be accessible 24/7, anytime, anywhere, on one billion devices, our new relationship with Verizon FiOS represents an opportunity larger than cable alone, taking us to their digital and mobile platforms that are heavily used by our audience of young music fans and artist. We look forward to welcoming additional viewers as part of our REVOLT Nation.
