Sean Combs, the entertainment impresario known as Diddy, will launch a music-themed cable network. The channel is called Revolt and is aiming to launch at the end of the year–12/12/12, to be specific.
“I’m thrilled to be at the helm to usher in a completely new model of television that brings together the artist community, social media, and cutting edge technology. The opportunity to create a home for music, artists, and fans to communicate in an authentic way is truly unique. REVOLT will celebrate and recreate the platform that helped launch my career, and give the world a new way to experience music on television.”
According to the Comcast: REVOLT is a revolution in music on television, a place where artists and their viewers come together and engage with technology and social media. It’s a channel where new artists can share their work in the way it was meant to be: raw, uncut, and uncensored.Yes! I can’t wait!!

Tyler is slowly taking over the world! NBA Hall of Fame baller/Analyst Charles Barkley is a co-founder of Kin TV.
