FilmOn Networks Launches Hip Hop and Battle Rap Talk Show Ether Weekly

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Feb. 27, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FilmOn Networks is adding more content to its massive offering again with its production of a talk show with fans of urban culture in mind. Ether Weekly, with new episodes dropping every Friday, will cover the latest news in hip hop, battle rap and pop culture trends. Hosted by famed battle rap personality Lush One, the controversial reality TV star Ericka Mena (Love & Hip Hop), and Revolt TV's funky correspondent Sib Vicious, the show offers a one of a kind, insider perspective.

Every episode features as special guest--such as recent visitors, battle rap heavyweights Dizaster and Daylyt to legendary artists such as Bizzy Bone of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. Each guest will share an exclusive verse, share behind the scenes adventures and give their shout outs. There is also the Ether Hottie of the Week segment which features up and coming women, each with talent.

"I think the show is anchored by the cohesion and humor of us, the hosts," said Lush One. "Our access to amazing guests and the superb production values FilmOn creates make it raise well above other hip hop talk shows."

Alki David, CEO of FilmOn Networks, said: "Lush and I have had our own battles but I see in him a manic young hustler after my own heart. He, along with his two beautiful and talented co-hosts, will feed the hip hop community the unfiltered, uncensored news and talk it deserves."

Ether Weekly will repeat in rotation on a dedicated channel on FilmOn Networks. FilmOn's other urban entertainment channels include Battle Rap, 1on1Boxing, Hollyhood, New Star TV, Who?Mag, BoneThugsTV, The Raw Report, Urban Music Network and more. The FilmOn platform has over 600 channels that reach 65 million monthly users around the globe. More hip hop and R and B event television is on its way incorporating FilmOn's sister companies MondoTunes and Hologram USA.

FilmOn Networks was recently named the number one innovator changing the face of television by Forbes.
