Localised BET channel to feature on DStv Premium


Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN) Africa is partnering with MultiChoice to launch a new localised BET channel on DStv Premium in South Africa. Designed to reflect, respect, and elevate the rich variety and positive values of African and African-American culture, BET will be VIMN Africa’s second BET channel on the continent, expanding the network’s family entertainment offering for viewers between 20 and 49.

Going live on 2 April 2015 at 17h20 CAT, BET will air exclusively on DStv channel 129. The channel will co-exist alongside sister channel BET2 (formerly BET International), which currently airs on DStv channel 135.

The new 24-hour channel will provide an uplifting blend of locally produced and international programming from a variety of genres, including drama, family- friendly sitcoms, stand-up comedy, documentaries, talk shows, awards specials, reality series, gospel music, and more.
