Revolt, said Combs, is “the first channel created entirely from the ground up in this new era of social media. We’re building this platform for artists to reach an extraordinary number of people in a completely different way. Revolt will be live, like all great moments in television history.”
Another celebrity-owned channel Comcast picked up is Aspire, a collaboration between NBA legend Magic Johnson and GMC TV. It will focus on positive, inspirational programming for black families and will debut this summer.
