BET TO LAUNCH NEW SERVICE, TYLER PERRY WORK TO BE FEATURED
BET channel is prepping to debut a streaming service, BET+, that will launch later this year along with original content from Tyler Perry. No details on the pricing of the service are currently available, but it is said that it will include content from a number of Viacom’s cable brands and not just BET.
BET+ would be part of Viacom’s overarching digital strategy. The company recently purchased Los Angeles-based video streaming service Pluto TV for $340 million back in January.
