The announcement comes just two months following a successful Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign in Fall 2017 that raised nearly $170,000 USD, nearly double the platform’s target goal.
First announced at Montreux Jazz Festival in July 2017, Qwest TV will feature over 100 curated concerts, documentaries, interviews and archives of premium jazz and related eclectic music original content, through a responsive platform available for access on computers, mobile and tablet devices. Subscriptions are available in Standard (SD) or Premium (HD/4K) formats, with pricing starting at $7.49 USD per month. All subscription tiers are ad-free. Customers can subscribe at www.qwest.tv.
Initial content available on launch date will include content featuring artists such as Aretha Franklin, B.B. King, Anderson .Paak, Bobby McFerrin, Robert Glasper, Jacob Collier, Sun Ra, Al Jarreau, Maceo Parker, Chick Corea, Gregory Porter, Macy Gray, Wayne Shorter, George Benson, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Pharoah Sanders, Elvin Jones, Milton Nascimento, and many more. A variety of new original content will be added on a monthly basis.
