“When we started out as Redemption TV we wanted to make music television fresh, exciting and real again, says Peter Hadfield, joint CEO of Rockworld.TV. We achieved these goals quicker than we could have imagined which gave us new aspirations and ambitions for the project. Now that we have a whole channel at our disposal, the sky is the limit for 2007 and beyond, and we aim to make Rockworld.TV the number one channel destination for all fans of real music; from indie rock to extreme metal.”
