I remember during my freshman year in college, I took a black-film class and sat through hours and hours of blaxploitation movies. From Shaft to every Melvin Van Peebles film ever made, the class was an eye-opener when it came to black movie classics. And now you’ll be able to stream those films on, thanks to Bounce TV’s new Brown Sugar subscription service.


The $3.99-a-month subscription service will include films such as Car Wash and 
Cotton Comes to Harlem and movies featuring the first lady of badass herself, Pam Grier. In addition to the movie streaming, subscribers will also be able to stream Bounce TV’s own lineup, which includes the shows Saints & Sinners and Mann and Wife.

If you’re a current Amazon Prime member, there’s a seven-day free trial.

Bye, Kinja! It's been fun (occasionally).



I could have sworn there was another service like this, I think the tag is “Like netflix, only blacker” Which if there was a service that started like netflix but had, films by independent black film makers I would appreciate that. Cause when netflix finds out that your black, your recommendations become shit.

Real thing that happened

Netflix: I see you’ve watched Scandal and Being Mary Jane. Would you like to try this new title “Video Ho”
