New York rapper 50 Cent can finally breathe a sigh of relief. The hip-hop star’s popular “Power” TV show is back on TV giant Optimum’s line-up.
Curtis Jackson went to Instagram Tuesday (February 13) to reveal Optimum and Starz are reunited once again.
Last month, Hollywood actor/director Tyler Perry blasted Optimum for dropping Starz from his TV package.
“To all my people in New York, I got a place there and it’s really bad when you go in and turn on your cable and Starz is gone? It’s crazy that Optimum just took it off the air. So if you’re dealing with the same thing a lot of people are dealing with paying the cable bill, it hasn’t changed. They just took Starz off the air. Go to KeepStarz.com – leave a message there or better yet call this number: 844-717-8279. Let the people know that’s not right. You’re going to just take ‘Power’ off the air? We love the show and you’re gonna just take it off the air and we’re paying the same amount. And #IWantStarz. Leave your messages, leave your tweets, leave everything there. Y’all in New York, y’all know what to do. You’ve been at the Beacon with me, y’all know what to do. It’s crazy. They just took it off the air. Insane. I gotta go to work.”
A few weeks ago, “Power” fans lit up Optimum’s social media pages for dropping Starz.
