D.C. Tunes In Real Hip Hop


Real Hip Hop Network will be available to more than 2 million Washington, D.C.-area households following a distribution deal between RMD Entertainment Group and MHz Networks.

The network will be available six days per week, from midnight-6 p.m., on Verizon Communications’ Verizon FiOS TV, Adelphia Communications, EchoStar Communications’ Dish Network and DirecTV.

The service described itself as “the first-ever cable-television network geared specifically toward the dynamic lifestyle and culture that defines hip-hop.” Following the D.C.-area additions, RHN will be available in more than 17 million homes.
