What is BET Plus? Here's everything you need to know.

Some of my most popular posts are my BET Plus lists. Every month, I post the full list of new shows coming to BET Plus, new BET Plus original series, new films on BET Plus, and titles leaving BET Plus.

Make sure you finish up any series or movies scheduled to leave the streaming service at the end of January before they’re gone.

Here’s a sneak peek at some of the hottest series and films on BET Plus in January.

What type of content does BET Plus typically release?

BET Plus is known for its diverse range of content that predominantly targets the African American audience. It features a variety of genres, including drama, comedy, reality series, and documentaries, all of which showcase Black talent both in front of and behind the camera.

Original films and television series make up a significant portion of their offerings, with notable creators like Tyler Perry producing exclusive content for the platform. In addition to original content, BET Plus also hosts a plethora of classic shows and movies. The service regularly updates its library, ensuring there's always something new to discover.

What is BET Plus known for?

BET Plus is a premium online streaming service known for its vast library of Black content from renowned Black creators. With over 2,000 hours of content, BET Plus offers a diverse range of genres such as drama, comedy, reality series, and documentaries.

The platform is recognized for showcasing Black talent both in front and behind the camera. It hosts a mixture of original films and TV series, with creators like Tyler Perry producing exclusive content. Classic shows and movies are also part of its offerings.

Why does the BET Plus catalog change?

The BET Plus catalog changes due to the licensing agreements they have with studios and content providers. These licenses can expire if not renewed, leading to content being removed from the platform. Also, to keep their offerings fresh and engaging, BET Plus regularly adds new shows and movies. This includes both original content produced by Black creators and classic shows and movies. So, the changing catalog is a result of both the expiration of licenses and the continuous effort to provide new and diverse content.

Why does the BET Plus remove titles?

The removal of titles from the BET Plus platform is primarily due to licensing agreements. These licenses, negotiated between BET Plus and content providers or studios, have specific durations. When a license expires and isn't renewed, the associated content must be removed from the platform.

Additionally, BET Plus constantly strives to refresh its offerings to keep the platform engaging for users. This involves adding new content, including both original shows and movies and classic favorites while removing others to maintain a balanced and dynamic library.

With many streaming services increasing prices, it’s important to get the most out of your monthly subscription each month.

What's leaving BET Plus in January?

Other fan favorites include “Games People Play,” “Sistas,” and “Hit The Floor.”

How to add titles to your watchlist?

Is there a place in the app to see new releases?

There is a place in the BET Plus app to see new releases. The app regularly updates with new content, and you can find these updates on the homepage or under sections like “New Releases” or “Recently Added”.


BET Plus’s lineup of movies and TV shows is constantly changing as the company gains and loses licensing rights for different content.


BET Plus licenses TV shows and movies from studios and content providers around the world, and those licenses can expire if they’re not renewed. If one of your favorite TV shows or movies you love is leaving, it indicates that the licensing agreement with the content provider is about to end.


No, it is not included with your BET subscription. BET+ is a separate, paid streaming service. But, you can sign up for a free 7-day BET Plus trial.
