BET Networks Make Video Connection with Amazon’s Alexa

Forging a deeper connection to video-enabled smart home hubs, BET Networks has recently introduced “BET Breaks” on Amazon’s Echo Show and Echo Spot devices.

The video-optimized version of BET’s flash briefing for those devices stream video highlights about what’s trending in Black and pop culture, including breaking news, the network said.

The BET Breaks Alexa flash briefing is currently offered in the U.S., Australia, Canada and the U.K.

“We’re excited to continue working with Amazon’s Alexa and expanding our ongoing efforts to offer fans even more multiplatform opportunities to access BET premium original digital content, whenever, wherever and on whatever devices they want.” Bobby Singh, head of digital at BET Networks, said in a statement.
