BET (Black Entertainment Television) is one of the highest rated channels on cable TV. Many people are looking to cut the cord and save some money every month. But what if you don’t want to miss hit BET shows like Boomerang, American Souls, or Tales. How can you watch the BET awards live this June?
Don’t worry. There are many ways to stream BET live online without paying for an expensive cable TV or satellite subscription.
Stream BET Live with Philo
The most affordable way to stream BET is through Philo. Philo is a streaming service that offers BET and a ton of other top TV networks typically found on cable TV for just $16 per month.
You can watch BET and other channels through Philo on up to three devices at the same time. They even include a cloud DVR so you can record your favorite BET shows.
Philo is currently supported on Mac and PC on a web browser, Apple iPhone and iPad (running iOS 9 or newer), Android phones and tablets (running 5.0 or newer), Fire TV, Apple TV, and Roku. You can also stream Philo to your TV with Chromecast.
The service offers a 1 week free trial to test the service. You can sign up for the free trial to Philo HERE.
Philo will let you watch 2 days completely free, by simply supplying your mobile number. After 2 days of viewing, you need to supply a credit card to watch the remaining 5 days of the trial. Your subscription starts after the 7th day of the trial. However, if you cancel before then, you won’t be billed. For more details on the streaming service, please check out our review of Philo.
