More than a year after his announcement of a music-themed cable network, the seasoned mogul has revealed that Revolt TV will make its debut in July. The channel will focus on art, music, fashion, culture and film for a new generation.
Earlier this month, Combs told the Los Angeles Times that Revolt will be “the first channel created entirely from the ground up in this new era of social media.”
â€œWeâ€™re building this platform for artists to reach an extraordinary number of people in a completely different way,â€ he said. â€œRevolt will be live, like all great moments in television history.â€

Combs, who is working closely with former MTV programming chief Andy Schuon, has relied on a strong social media campaign to push the lifestyle cable network aimed at the African-American audience.
As a part of its commitment to the FCC to launch minority-owned networks, Comcast will be Revolt’s primary distributor. The service provider plans to launch ten more minority channels over the next eight years, with four being majority African American-owned.
