Good for them, but still hoping to eventually get press releases announcing more original content from the new network...

ATLANTA, Feb. 7, 2012  /PRNewswire/ -- Bounce TV (http://www.bouncetv.com), the nation's first and only over-the-air broadcast television network for African-American audiences, has acquired the television rights to more African American-skewing motion pictures in two individual, multi-year licensing agreements with Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution and Paramount Home Media Distribution.

Among the titles Bounce TV lands in their agreement with Warner Bros Domestic Television Distribution: The Academy Award® winning Bird, directed by Clint Eastwood; the original Shaft (1971); Richard Pryor starring in Greased Lightning and The Mack with Max Julien; Bill Cosby & Sidney Poitier in Let's Do It Again and 1997's Rosewood.

Bounce TV's agreement with Paramount includes such titles as Critical Condition starring Pryor; Diana Ross in Mahogany as well as her classic 1972 performance as Jazz great Billie Holiday in Lady Sings The  Blues; two Eddie Murphy comedies Best Defenseand  Vampire In Brooklyn, and Denzel Washington starring in the 1990 comedy Heart Condition.

Some of the newly-licensed titles will be seen within the network's new "Brown Sugar Saturday Night" weekly primetime franchise. "Brown Sugar Saturday Night" showcases urban cinema with a '70s bent, featuring some of the most popular African American movies of all time.
