I love Netflix. I love Hulu. I love a few things about HBONow. But there's something depressing, exhausting even, about looking for something to watch on the weekends and seeing a seemingly endless sea of White faces.
Thank the gods for Black & Sexy TV. Originally a crowd-funded labor of love on YouTube, it is now a Chromecast-compatible streaming app with a fully stocked treasure trove of independently-produced Black shows and films. Usually priced at $6.99/month, they're currently offering a free 2-week trial and 25% off the the first free months.
Needless to say, I've signed up.
I've picked where I left off back on YouTube, and that's with Hello Cupid. But I'm looking forward to watching everything. I'm so proud of the quality of media that I could cry - from the writing to the casting to the wardrobe to the music to the lighting to the directing and editing.... I can't wait to binge-watch and review and fangirl in the months to come.
If you've already got a subscription, let me know what you're watching and what you think! If not, sign up! This is a Black-owned business providing some desperately needed content, and they need our support.
