BET Networks Launches First-Ever Brand App – BET NOW
BET Networks today announced the launch of its first ever brand app: BET NOW. Beginning today, fans can download the new app for free on iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad and Android devices. BET NOW is currently available in the App store or Google Play Store.
"With BET NOW, users are one download away from consuming some of their favorite BET shows on their tablets and phones" said Brandon Lucas, Vice President and General Manager of BET Mobile. "Apps are an increasingly important part of the mobile eco-system given the ubiquity of smart phones, the ability to have a direct connection to our consumers, and the growing rate of video consumption on these devices."
BET NOW provides fans access to a library of full episodes of some of their favorite current shows including The Game, Let's Stay Together, Being Mary Jane, Real Husbands of Hollywood and 106 & Park as well as hit classics. Users can access this content via TV Everywhere authentication - a process whereby users verify their subscription through their TV provider. It is now available to 55 million households across more than 20 distributors, including some of the largest, such as AT&T U-verse, Cablevision, Cox, DIRECTV, Time Warner Cable, and Verizon FiOS. Motions, a trusted source in multi-textured hair care and styling, is the BET NOW launch sponsor.
