NEW YORK (AP) - The Jennifer Lopez-backed company that owns NUVOtv, an English-language cable entertainment network aimed at Latinos, has bought the Fuse music network.
SiTV Media said Friday it had agreed to pay $226 million to Fuses owner, the Madison Square Garden Co. SiTV reportedly outbid Revolt, the music network started by Sean Combs.
Fuse is in 73 million homes, more than twice that of NUVOtv. SiTV announced no plans to change or close Fuse, although there is precedent for companies buying networks with greater distribution in order to help their own networks grow. Al-Jazeera bought Current TV and shut Current down.
Lopez is a shareholder and chief creative officer at NUVOtv.
