The popular online network that began on YouTube, launched a premium subscription service that allows fans and viewers to pay, seven dollars monthly or $60 yearly, to view season finales of existing shows.

“People are drawn to the type of content we offer because it’s for a progressive black audience or people who enjoy black culture in a modern way. It’s not really found anywhere else quite like that, and that’s what makes it unique,” said Numa Perrier to The Root. Perrier is co-founder and director of programming and development at Black and Sexy TV. The Couple will be executive produced by Spike Lee.
