We are now pleased to bring TEMPO to the United States to Cablevision customers who can now experience our unique blend of programming that reflects the beauty of the Caribbean spirit,” said Frederick A Morton, Jr., Founder, Chairman & CEO, TEMPO Networks.
First launched by MTV Networks in 2005, Morton, himself a native of the Caribbean, founded and subsequently acquired the channel from Viacom, MTV’s corporate parent in 2007 and moved TEMPO’s corporate headquarters in 2008 across the Hudson River to its current home in Newark, NJ.
TEMPO is currently broadcast to approximately 3.5 million viewers throughout the Caribbean.
Cablevision becomes the first U.S. affiliate to make the channel available to its roughly 3 million cable customers in the New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Pennsylvania area.
TEMPO can now be added by Cablevision customers who subscribe to Broadcast Basic services for an additional $4.95 per month.
