Amazon launches African-American video-on-demand service”

Amazon today announced the launch of Brown Sugar - the new subscription-video-on-demand service featuringthe biggest collection of the baddest African-American movies of all-time - on Amazon Channels.

Amazon Prime subscribers can now choose from the library of uncensored and commercial free films, as they were originally seen in the theatres.

Fans of Blaxploitation films will recognize classics such as Foxy Brown, Blacula, Shaft, and many other classics.

Along with this Brown Sugar will also offer complete seasons of Bounce network series "Saints & Sinners", "Mann & Wife", "Family Time", "In The Cut" and "Ed Gordon", as well as Premier Boxing Champions events.

When launched late past year, the service tapped two stars of the so-called "blaxploitation" genre - Fred "The Hammer" Williamson and Pam Grier - and rapper-entrepreneur Rick Ross to be its "official ambassadors". When asked what the site had to offer Grier spoke from personal experience. Brown Sugar is also accessible on Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Amazon Kindle, Android and Apple smartphones and tablets and web browsers.

Amazon Prime members can purchase a Brown Sugar subscription directly for a free seven-day trial.

Brown Sugar's tagline is a "BLACK Explosion of HOT Chicks, COOL Cats and CULT Classics".
