BET Play is also the only place to watch live-streams of BET’s events and awards shows, including the BET Awards (June 26, 2016, at 8 p.m. EST), BET Hip Hop Awards and the Soul Train Awards. 

“For people around the world who love Black culture, BET Play will enable fans to access our content when and where they want it,” said Debra Lee, Chairman and CEO of BET Networks.
