Freesat gambles on BET HD


by David Allen

The free to view satellite broadcaster Freesat will be adding BET HD to its electronic programme guide (EPG).

This deal comes in time for the channel to show the 2009 BET Awards in HD and completely free to viewers.

The Black Entertainment Television network established the BET awards back in 2001, the idea being to promote the best African American talent in the fields of TV, film, sport and music.

The award ceremony takes place this weekend.

It is hosted by Jamie Foxx, and there will be performances from Beyonce Knowles, Jay-Z & Kanye West.

However, the entire show will be re-run on the 4th July on BET HD, staring at 8.00 pm, for those Freesat subscribers who have the HD set top box, otherwise the viewers can watch the show in SD at the same time.
