Coming Soon: Bounce TV

Written by on September 19, 2011

Bounce TV is coming September 26th to a local channel near you. What is so good about Bounce TV you ask? Well it is the first over-the-air Black network. We have other channels catered to African-Americans, but none of them are free. And for the love of JJ Evans, I hope this network is the real deal and not some slapstick after school special.

Most likely I won’t have anything to worry about judging by it’s opening week line-up; A Raisin In The Sun, School Daze and The Wiz.

Beau Pillet says the station will feature hundreds of movies, shows, documentaries and inspirational faith-based programs.

“Along with a lot of sports, like the CIAA, the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association, which is the oldest black athletic league in the nation,” Pillet said.

The network was founded by a group, including U.N. Ambassador Andrew Young and Martin Luther King III.

“I mean, it’s a unique network for the entire nation. It’s the first ever over the air broadcast television network programmed for African American audiences,” Pillet said.

As of now Bounce TV will be available in these markets.

    They did not need to do this. If the black community is whining about race equality than why do they need to have their own tv channel. Things were fine the way they were. With almost every household having satellite or cable, how many do you expect to watch this? How can we watch the really old movies that no other channel plays? If the black community wanted those shows, then THIStv could’ve had a whole week for them. Actually, I remember a whole week was devoted to Sidney Portier.

    The logo in the bottom middle screen is all to distracting. Logos and other icons totally ruin watching TV. Please, be more curtious to tv watchers and only have a short temporary (3 sec. max.) ID at the bottom if you must. In order to watch any TV I am constructing a black cardboard bottom on my nice tv to BLOCK this stupidity. I wish I could enjoy your broadcast and will check next week hoping for a clean screen. Thank you.

What ya think??
