Tempo Inks Caribbean Co-Op Deal


MTV Networks’ Tempo will join the Caribbean Cable Cooperative Inc.’s lineup when the Caribbean-themed network debuts Nov. 21.

Systems covering 18 Caribbean locations -- Anguilla, Aruba, Bahamas, Barbados, Bermuda, British Virgin Islands, Cayman, Curacao, Dominica, Grenada, Jamaica, Montserrat, Nevis, St. Maarten, St. Kitts, St. Lucia, Trinidad & Tobago and Turks & Caicos -- will carry Tempo on expanded-basic tiers reaching more than 300,000 homes.

The U.S. Virgin Islands and the Dominican Republic are also Tempo affiliates, MTVN said.

“Tempo will be the 24-hour destination and ultimate source of all things Caribbean -- music, culture, travel, community, sports and so much more,” MTVN senior vice president Frederick Morton said in a prepared statement.
