New BET app arrives on the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick

Similar to NBCUniversal, Viacom has been on a bit of a new app spree for the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick, with the latest arrival being a new BET app. As you’d expect, the layout and functionality of the app is identical to other Viacom apps like Comedy Central, which I reviewed in detail, and MTV. Unlike most apps released by media conglomerates, Viacom’s apps actually have quite a bit of free content, including full episodes, that you can watch without needing to activate the app with a cable provider. Other Viacom properties that we’ll hopefully see Fire TV apps for in the future include Spike TV, Logo TV, Nickelodeon, Nick Jr., CMT, and VH1.

    This is just like the roku version: no live stream option whereas the android/phone version does.

    I really don’t see the point. Most cord cutters own fire sticks. If I had cable I would just watch on demand and wouldn’t need the fire stick except for Netflix, Hulu, etc. BET offer the subscription services for less than $5 per month to countries outside of the US. Why not offer that here? Smh

    Can a friend come over and insert her cable provider password and username info if she wants to watch Bet and put in my fitestick code to allow it if I don’t have the cable she wants to watch????
