About

BET2 (known as BET International on StarSat) was a digital satellite television channel in South Africa owned by Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN) Africa which offered urban movies, series and reality shows, mainstream rap and R&B music videos.

It debuted in South Africa on the TopTV satellite service as BET International in May 2010 and was retained when the broadcaster changed its name to StarSat in 2014. It was later picked up by MultiChoice and aired on DStv, debuting on 30 September, 2014.

In April 2015 a new BET channel exclusive to MultiChoice began airing on the DStv platform. BET International was renamed on DStv to BET2, but remained BET International on StarSat.

BET2 was discontinued on Monday 30 November, 2015.
