BET+ has been available as a standalone Roku Channel since November of this year. Now Roku has added BET+ to The Roku Channel allowing you to use your Roku account to manage your subscription. You can start a free trial, after which it will cost $9.99 a month. That includes more than 1,000 hours of premium content.
“We are thrilled to offer a streaming experience of content curated for the underserved African American audience with BET+. African Americans have a higher SVOD adoption rate than any other consumer base on the market, which is why BET+ is a natural complement of BET’s linear network, which has been and continues to be the leading home of black culture for decades,” said Scott Mills, President of BET Networks when the service launched.
“In our first year, we will release a BET+ original project almost every month, adding to our lineup of deep and diverse content,” said Devin Griffin, General Manager BET+ said when BET+ launched. “We’re focused on super-serving lovers of Black stories by working with top talent, and supporting fresh new voices, on both sides of the camera.”
