This guide covers steps on how to install BET Plus on FireStick. These steps apply to all Fire TV products, including Fire TV Cube, Fire TV Lite, FireStick 4K, and FireStick 4K Max. I will also briefly talk about the BET app, which requires a cable TV account.
What Is BET Plus?
BET (Black Entertainment Television) is a basic-cable TV channel that focuses on content designed for the Afro-American population.
Bet Plus app is a subscription-based service that lets you stream content from the BET Network.
The BET Plus app is sleek and easy to use, with a simplified menu and well-organized sub-categories. It also has a massive library of entertainment content, including movies and TV shows, music videos, current, and public affairs, news, comedy, and BET-centered flagship shows.
While BET Plus has several valuable features, the highlight of this app is over 1000 hours of mainstream Black movies and TV shows. In this app, you’ll find old-time hits like Barbershop, Juwanna Man, Death at a Funeral, and more.

Plus, if you're not 100% satisfied, you can always get a refund. ExpressVPN is currently also offering a whopping 3 extra months free on their annual plan!
