Apple TV viewers can now watch Brown Sugar‘s library of iconic black movies, all unedited and commercial-free as they were originally seen in theaters. Apple TV (Fourth generation) customers who purchase a Brown Sugar subscription will receive a seven-day free trial and then pay $3.99 per month thereafter.

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 TimeIn 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.
