The channel, created by BET-founder Robert L. Johnson, exists as a subscription video on demand service (SVOD) and focuses on programming for African American and urban audiences.

The channel offers live stand-up specials like Martin Lawrence Presents: 1st Amendment Stand Up, dramas such as Blackbird starring Academy Award-winning actress Mo’Nique, and new series including Couples’ Night starring Reagan Gomez and Charles Malik Whitfield.

UMC can be found on the home screen of the Xfinity On Demand platform or by using the Xfinity Stream app. Xfinity TV customers with X1 can also find the channel using voice commands, or within the Black Film and TV section of Xfinity On Demand.

A subscription to Urban Movie Channel costs $4.99 per month.

“UMC offers an array of feature films, original series, drama, comedy, documentaries, and more. We’re excited to offer even more customers the ability to watch UMC’s quality urban content at their leisure,” said Traci Otey Blunt, President of UMC.
