Bounce TV, an African American broadcast channel, just launched a new streaming service for all who love black cinema, called Brown Sugar. Brown Sugar is being nicknamed the “Black Netflix,” offering an array of classic black films, including: The Mack, Foxy Brown, Shaft, Super Fly, Three the Hard Way, and more. Actress Pam Grier, an official ambassador for the app, said in a statement, “Brown Sugar is just like Netflix, only blacker.”
“You can see the influence of these movies in every aspect of rap and hip-hop, in the music, the lyrics, the fashion, and overall style,” Ross said about Brown Sugar. “The blaxploitation genre is where it all began.”
Brown Sugar is $4 a month to subscribe, including a free trial period for one month. Watch the commercial for the new movie streaming service here.
