NuvoTV and Madison Square Garden were not available for comment, outside regular U.S. business hours.
Fuse, an American music television network, reaches about 74 million homes through pay-TV systems including DirecTV (DTV.O) and Dish Network Corp (DISH.O).
The celebrity rapper-turned-business mogul Combs planned to merge Fuse with his music cable network Revolt TV, which is backed by Comcast Corp (CMCSA.O), in an attempt to gain wider distribution and higher subscriber fees, the report said.
