The BeBop Channel (beboptv.com), the multicultural multi-platform streaming network from Harlem, is set to begin airing its programming by early 2020 to certain New York City cable households over Spectrum.

The BeBop Channel will air in the north Manhattan region from the Upper West Side extending into the Bronx.

Channel executives, which are currently developing a seven channel streaming format to accommodate “BeBop’s" growing and racially inclusive Harlem content for jazz, lifestyle, comedy, teen, culture, competition/game shows, festivals, theatricals, “Top 12” weekly video chart, and the future “BeBop Club” membership card, are thrilled at the addition of traditional cable distribution in New York City.

“Many of our supporters, particularly our elderly supporters in Harlem, access their programming via cable and to have them partake in our journey is a must for us”, says CEO and former Duke Ellington Orchestra musician, Gregory Charles Royal.

The BeBop Channel is on par to become the first investable hub of cross genre entertainment and culture emanating from Harlem (the company currently offers stock to New York state residents via its beboptv.com website and hopes to go public in 2020).

Co-Founder Sue Veres Royal says “our content reflects a more accurate narrative about Harlem and jazz generally, which is particularly important in light of the gentrification that has taken place in both."

The BeBop Channel is expected to begin airing on Spectrum channel 79 by early 2020. Updates will be posted at .

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
