BET Plus has a 7-day trial: Here's how to get it
BET Plus is a Paramount-owned streaming service that targets the African American audience. It not only has a lot of library movie and TV shows to draw upon from its BET cable channel as well as other outlets but it’s been very busy adding exclusive shows and movies to its roster as well. So you may be asking if there is a BET Plus free trial so you can check what it has to offer with no risk.
We have the answer to that question, along with how to sign up for the service and if BET Plus is worth keeping after the trial is over. Here’s what we can tell you right now about the BET Plus free trial. You can sign up for the service at the link below:
THE SHORT ANSWER
There is a BET Plus free trial that lasts for seven days. You can sign up for the service directly on your web browser, your mobile device, your smart TV, or even as a “channel" on a third-party streaming service. However, the $9.99 a month price tag might be a bit high for what you get from BET Plus.
Does BET Plus have a free trial?
The simple answer is, “Yes.” When you sign up for the service, you get the BET Plus free trial which lasts for seven days before Paramount starts charging your account. As with most online services with this feature, you can cancel your membership before the seven days are over so your account won’t get charged.
How to sign up
You can sign up for the service at its official website. Once there, sign up with your email and password to create an account. You will then automatically be made to select one of the two plans. The regular $9.99 a month plan, or the annual plan at $94.99. Both offer a free 7-day trial. Once you select your plan, just type in your payment info and you are all set.
You can also sign up with the mobile BET Plus app on iOS and Android and use the Apple App Store and Google Play’s respective payment systems to sign up for the service and the free trial. You can also sign up directly on some smart TVs and set-top boxes with the Roku, Apple TV, and Amazon Fire TV operating systems. Finally, you can sign up and get the free trial through one of its supported third-party streaming services, such as The Roku Channel and Amazon Prime Video.
What to watch during your trial
Once you have signed up for the service, you can watch thousands of movies and TV episodes from the main BET cable TV network, along with shows and movies from Paramount that target the African American audience. However, the most important content is the original and exclusive movies and TV shows. They include many shows from creator Tyler Perry, including the comedy Bruh, the thriller Ruthless, and more.
Is BET Plus worth it?
We are not going to lie. Spending $9.99 a month on BET Plus may be a bit of an ask for a lot of people considering many other services offer more content overall and an overall variety of content for matching prices or even a lower price. Paramount Plus, Peacock, and Apple TV Plus are all cheaper (although the first two do have ads in their cheaper plans). Even the many free streaming services like Paramount-owned Pluto TV. Amazon Freevee and Tubi could offer more for a casual viewer than paying close to $10 for BET Plus.
However, it’s true that the service is starting to add more and more original content. For many folks, and especially for fans of Tyler Perry’s work (he’s created shows like Bruh, Ruthless, Zatima, and more for the service) could be worth the asking price. Ultimately, the seven-day BET Plus free trial is a perfect way to see if the $9.99 a month price is worth it to you.
No. The free trial is technically available just for new subscribers only. However, old BET Plus subscribers who want to return but still want a free trial could try signing up at a different platform, such as using one of the channels on The Roku Channel or Amazon Prime Video
Yes. As of the time of this writing, BET Plus doesn’t have any restrictions on account sharing so you should be able to check the service out via your friend’s account. However, they should not share their information with too many people. as it might cause them to lose their account.
You should end your subscription at least 24 hours ahead of the ending of your seven-day free trial to avoid being charged, according to BET Plus’s support files.
