Brown Sugar, the subscription-video-on-demand service from black television network, Bounce TV, is now available for Amazon Fire users!
Customers of Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick will receive a 7-day free trial, followed by $3.99 for each month after. It’s already available in the Amazon Appstore, Google Play Store and iTunes App Store and for desktop devices on their official site.
Brown Sugar features an extensive library of iconic 1970s black movies (and the films they would later inspire), all unedited and commercial-free as they were originally seen in theaters. Titles include Dolemite, Jackie Brown, Cotton Comes to Harlem, Foxy Brown, Cooley High, Blacula, Don’t Be a Menace to South Central, Pride, A Soldier’s Story, Black Caesar, Which Way Is Up?, Hammer, Richard Pryor: Live on the Sunset Strip, Car Wash and The Original Gangstas. Now, it also includes original programming, as well as full seasons of Bounce series like Saints & Sinners, Mann & Wife, Family Time, In The Cut and Ed Gordon.
Fred Williamson and Pam Grier, the King and Queen of the blaxploitation era, are official ambassadors for Brown Sugar, as is rapper Rick Ross, who is a huge fan of the blaxploitation movies on the service.
