BHN.TV was founded to bring you quality, relevant programming that reflects the Black American experience. The founders believe that it is time to step up and create one TV channel whose single mission is to be the first and only full-time television destination for the real stories of Black life in America. We believe that Black heritage is American heritage. BHN is a channel for all Americans and the world.
We have license agreements with television and movie providers throughout the country and we are always looking for new programming that will entertain and engage our customers. If you have a program that you would like us to consider presenting please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
You can watch the preview of any title for free online. Once you have selected a title to watch you can either watch the full-length title immediately on line or on your TV via the Roku service.

The most likely cause of interrupted playback online is your network connection. If you confirm your network is still connected to the Internet, are you running your connection over a wireless network? If so check the wireless router. The number of people using your Internet connection can also cause the bandwidth to drop and interrupt your viewing. When all else fails, restart your computer.
Yes. We do not currently offer digital rights management to allow you to disconnect from the Internet.
In certain cases, where we have rights outside North America, we will make our content available in other territories. The quality of watching content on the Internet outside North America may be less than optimal.
