The service which is targeted for African American audience is said to feature more than 1,000 hours of premium content.
BET network official, Scott Mills, said the network is thrilled to offer a streaming experience of content curated for the underserved African American audience.

The price tag for the service, however, is a little on the pricier side compared to other rival streaming services like Disney's - which acquired 21st Century FOX - streaming service, which is priced at just $6.99 a month.
Nonetheless, the service has already a targeted audience which is going to be a big plus point for the company.
Some of the hot cakes of BET+ will be the remake of "First Wives Club" and a comedy show - 'Bigger.'
Mills further added, "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."
The service already sounds promising, but let's see how does it play when it's live on the 9th of September.
