Hip Hop TV Networks Set for Multi-Platform Distribution on Cable, Satellite, On-Demand, Mobile, Video Game Consoles, IPTV, and Via HipHopHoF.TV

NEW YORK, July 6, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hip Hop Global Media & Entertainment has announced plans to debut Hip Hop 1TV and Hip Hop 2Movie Channels at the 2013 NAPTE Conference. The Channels have also solidified a partnership agreement with the Hip Hop Hall of Fame to co-develop and produce co-branded content for television shows and movie projects for major distribution and syndication. 'This deal has been in the making for a few years now, and with the Hip Hop Hall of Fame Museum becoming a reality, Hip Hop Global Media & Entertainment will serve as a content marketing and production consultant to the facility and its broadcast studio that is in the works', stated Julian Ramui, VP of Programming.

Hip Hop 1-TV is a 24 hour all hip-hop television network channel. The channel will feature daily shows, and weekly programs, themed video segments, and annual television specials. The network will be an artists and celebrity driven themed programmer that is geared to both the national and international hip hop audiences. Shows include breaking news, feature stories, interviews, live events, behind the scenes all-access, and on-site remote broadcasts with the artists we love to hear, communicating our own Cultural messages and images for generations to come.

Hip Hop 2-Movie Channel is a 24 hour all hip-hop Movie Channel. Movies have been an important staple in everyday hip hop life, and will now be available 24/7 to the hip hop audience. The channel will feature the biggest names in Hollywood, hip-hop, and independent filmmakers. Original films, documentaries, and biographies will be produced in house, and in collaboration with artists, labels, and Hollywood studios. There will be all access shows, interviews, how to get in the biz, and "on-the-set" show segments that will make up non-film programming on the network.

The Hip Hop TV Channels will give Hip Hop Culture its very own medium to reach the world. The Company was founded in 1992 before the internet, and has co-produced the original Hip Hop Hall of Fame Awards TV Show that aired on BET in the 90s. The goal is to become a 'brand leader' pushing hip-hop Culture, Politics, Fashion, Drama, News, and Lifestyles to vast audiences, while empowering artists, independents, fans, labels, and entrepreneurs who dare to change the world!

The Hip Hop 1TV and Hip Hop 2Movie Channels are preparing to unveil their programming slate and schedules for 2013-14 season to MSOs, Satellite operators, International Distributors, Corporate Brands, and Advertising Agency clients.
