On January 25, 1980, BET was launched as Black Entertainment Television. Contrary to what most people think, BET launched on the Madison Square Garden Network (now USA Network), not Nickelodeon. It was because both BET and Nick are owned by ViacomCBS now that some people misremembered and added it to BET's Wikipedia page.

In 1989, Black Entertainment Television removed its full name and started going by its acronym.

In 2001, the logo was altered slightly by straightening up the letters, making other alterations to them (such as reducing the spaces within the letters and redrawing the T significantly to account for its re-adjustment) and filling out the star.
