Tyler Perry and BET Partner for New Streaming Service


Tyler Perry partnering with BET for a new subscription streaming service...

From Deadline
BET and Tyler Perry later this month will announce a new subscription streaming offering, a source familiar with the plans confirmed to Deadline.
The BET service, to be called BET+, will target African-American viewers and draft off of the long-term production deal between Perry and Viacom. In addition to titles from Tyler Perry Studios, the new outlet will offer TV shows and films from fellow Viacom flagships MTV, VH1 and Comedy Central. Perry is expected to plug the initiative at this month’s BET Awards.

^^^ True that! Neither am I, though I would watch BET if they had a black news program like they did in the 90s. (George Curry from Emerge Magazine, Tavis, Ed Gordon) but they don't want to give up that kind of news and entertainment—they want to feed us Tyler Perry. Pity.

There's too many streaming services already why should be pay for another one? Do they really think we're going to be paying for all these services every month. Naw, it's not worth it. I'll just stick to Netflix, Hulu, Spotify and CBS Access.

I would love an all black streaming service, which offers tv, news, gossip and movies 99% melanin. I don't see BET offering anything of worth, but this could be something for Tyler in the future when the right product comes along. I am not paying for a bunch of streaming services, I don't even have cable liberated myself years ago, just a roku tv, with Hulu and gave up Netflix. It's just all too damn much of a distraction. My children are not really into tv like that anyway.

This will be the catalog...Tyler Perry movies, Tyler Perry plays, movies where TP partnered with Lee Daniels, Baby Boy, Set It Off, a few gospel programs, and Soul Plane.

No thanks...I'll stick with Brown Sugar and Netflix services.
