According to the New York Times Jones will personally select the first round of videos. Each video will be accompanied by an essay from either a journalist or a jazz expert. Jones’ goal of launching the channel is to help preserve and present jazz in a way that’s particularly suited for modern audiences. “I know I won’t convert the world to jazz,” said Jones. “If I serve high quality programs in HD, with good curation and have a good, close relationship with my audience, I’ll be fine.”

Qwest TV kicked off on December 15th and offered 50 videos from 30 to 90 minutes long. The launch featured a documentary on the late Al Jarreau, concert films featuring the pianist Jason Moran and his trio, European jazz-rock fusion band Kneebody and the Malian vocalist Oumou Sangaré.  Another feature for subscribers includes “The Sound of New York,” a 10-part series originally serialized in Italy. The series features half-hour portraits of musicians like Damion Reid, Mark Turner and Bilal.

Prices for Qwest TV will run between $8.83 – $11.68. The price will be slightly higher for HD/4K streaming. Qwest TV will also offer yearly subscriptions.
