The newly updated device list for Brown Sugar comes roughly eight months after the service originally launched.

At launch, Brown Sugar’s brand ambassadors included rapper Rick Ross and actors Fred Williamson and Pam Grier.

"Brown Sugar is just like Netflix, only blacker," said Grier in a statement. "These movies are entertaining and fun, but they were also empowering to the black community as they depicted African Americans as strong leading characters and heroes for the first time."

Brown Sugar is owned and operated by Bounce TV, an African-American broadcast network launched in 2011 that shows movies, sporting events, licensed series and original programming. Bounce TV was co-founded by Martin Luther King III and former Congressman Andrew Young.
