Sean "Diddy" Combs' REVOLT TV Network Inks Distribution Deal With DIRECTV

AT&T subsidiary DIRECTV, LLC and REVOLT announced today that they have signed a distribution agreement to make REVOLT, the multi-platform, multi-genre music network founded by Sean “Diddy” Combs, available to DIRECTV customers on channel 384.

REVOLT is now available in DIRECTV’s Xtra package, U-verse’s U-200 package and will be available across multiple platforms in the future. This deal comes less than six months after REVOLT became available to AT&T U-verse TV customers.

“Our new agreement with DIRECTV is further proof we are on a fast track to revolutionizing the media industry,” said Chairman of REVOLT Sean “Diddy” Combs. “We are achieving what we set out to do 18 months ago – our programming is available on more screens, and our audience is bigger and more powerful than ever before. What a great way to end an already successful 2015 and launch us into the new year.”

“REVOLT brings a fresh and exciting point of view to our channel lineup and we’re pleased to offer it to our customers,” said Dan York, Chief Content Officer at AT&T.

“Our viewers want to access video content in innovative ways,” added REVOLT CEO Keith Clinkscales. “This agreement allows REVOLT to continue to create a content experience that meets young people on their terms. We could not be more excited to bring REVOLT to DIRECTV as we believe DIRECTV’s distribution platform is the perfect fit for REVOLT’s audience.”

Launched in broadcast in October 2013, REVOLT is available nationally on DIRECTV, AT&T U-verse TV, Time Warner Cable, Comcast, Verizon FiOS, CenturyLink Prism TV and Suddenlink. REVOLT is also available internationally in the Bahamas on Cable Bahamas, the Cayman Islands on Westel, in Jamaica on Digicel, and in Trinidad on Digicel and Massy Communications.
