Comedy Central & BET Get Android TV Apps

Two channels owned by Viacom have recently gotten updates to their apps that enable users to watch shows from their couch.

Viacom is a large media company in the US, owning several popular channels and a corporation with content being watched all around the world. Two of their US channels, Comedy Central and BET (Black Entertainment Television) have had mobile apps that allow users to watch shows wherever. Recently, both of these apps have been updated to support Android TV.

The look of both apps are similar, a light skin on top of standard Leanback.

Both support TV Everywhere, allowing you to watch their entire collection when you log in with a cable provider. BET’s app has a weird message if you haven’t authenticated but try to play blocked content.

You can download both from Google Play.

    Comedy Central allows non cable subscribers to watch new episodes of South Park the day after it airs for the week until the next new episode arrives then you can watch that episode and so on. The same goes for The Daily Show except they give you access to something like 5 to 7 episodes at a time.

    The Comedy Central app allows those who cannot sign in to watch the current South Park episode for a week beginning the day after it airs. The same goes for The Daily Show except they keep something like 5 to 7 episodes available at a time for those who cannot sign in.
