Bone Thugs N Harmony Launches TV Channel

The Legendary Hip Hop Group Heads Home to Cleveland For a One of a Kind Charity Concert Streaming Exclusively on ETV.com and Announces Its Own Television Channel on FilmOn Networks

CLEVELAND, OH--(Marketwired - October 10, 2014) - Bone Thugs N Harmony, who MTV calls "the most melodic hip hop group of all time," announces their triumphant return to the spotlight with all five original members appearing in a major pay-per-view benefit show, the launch of their own fully dedicated Internet TV channel on FilmOn Networks, the creation of a new production company, and a slate of community awareness and development projects in their hometown of Cleveland.

In conjunction with the launch of their Internet TV channel, Bone Thugs N Harmony will perform a live pay-per-view show from the Cleveland Performance Arts Center on Oct. 16. The show, presented by Ladderhouse International and Marathon Consulting Inc. will be broadcast on ETV.com, the new interactive platform from FilmOn Networks, with a portion of proceeds going to the Cleveland non-profit Roots of American Music. Bone Thugs N Harmony's original members will collaborate for the first time with a live orchestra to make this a one of a kind event for both concert attendees and the pay-per-view online audience. Watch a trailer for the event here.

Bone Thugs TV, will feature original content online at bonethugstv.com and will be distributed globally as part of Greek billionaire Alki David's FilmOn Networks. The channel joins FilmOn's massive content offering that 40 million plus unique users enjoy every month. The channel will air live concert footage, interviews, celebrity guest appearances, and behind the scenes footage from upcoming events.

"I'm excited to work with Ladderhouse and Marathon in bringing Bone Thugs N Harmony to our new ETV.com platform," says David. "The platform was designed to put power and monetization abilities in the hands of artists, athletes and celebrities who can create one of a kind events and raise money for their charities with ease."

Hip hop has been central to ETV.com and FilmOn's expansion with broadcasts in partnership with the BET Hip Hop Awards and Hip Hop Weekly, a charity concert by Akon live from the Congo, and an upcoming Battle Rap pay-per-view that will see Cassidy come out of retirement to face Dizaster on Dec. 6.

Cleveland being at the core of Bone Thugs N Harmony's beginnings, the Grammy Award Winning group is also launching a production company/record label; community awareness and development projects fostering professional, economic and educational endeavors throughout the city of Cleveland; as well as launching a stop the violence campaign.

We hope you'll join in spreading the word about this big event for Bone Thugs fans, hip hop aficionados, the City of Cleveland, and the empowerment of independent artists everywhere through the ETV.com platform.
