Hip Hop 1-TV & Hip Hop 2-Movie channels will preview programming at NAPTE '13 to national distributors, corporate sponsors & advertising agencies; the NAPTE is the National Association of Television Program Executives; it holds an annual market & conference; the next event will take place on January 28 - 30, 2013, in Miami Beach.

NEW YORK, Sept. 27, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Hip Hop TV Networks Digital Tier Channels Hip Hop 1-TV and Hip Hop 2-Movie Channels to Preview Programs at NAPTE 2013 to National Distributors and Corporate Sponsors & Advertising Agencies. The Channels have also reached an agreement to partner with Hip Hop Hall of Fame to produce joint programming initiatives beginning with full length Music Shows and Program blocks. 'The Hip Hop TV Network Channels are set to Debut in May 2013 with Online 'Web episodes' on an IPTV Platform and via Satellite Carriers. The networks will then later expand to national broadcasters, cable, mobile, VOD, and global satellite TV services in the summer of 2013', stated Bobby Fisher, Business Development Manager for Hip Hop Global Media & Entertainment.

Hip Hop 1-TV is a 24 hour all hip-hop television network channel. The network 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, and behind the scenes all-access programs.

Hip Hop 2-Movie Channel is a 24 hour all hip-hop Movie Channel. 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.

"Hip hop culture has needed its very own medium to reach the world! The Hip Hop TV Network Channels was founded in 1992 and launched the Hip Hop Hall of Fame Awards TV Show on BET Cable Network in the 90s, before the internet. Today it will become the brand leader of pushing hip-hop Music, Culture, Politics, Fashion, Drama, News, and Lifestyle programs to vast audiences around the world," stated Network Chairman J.T.
