Sling TV launches Sling Latino with Spanish channels, country-specific options
MUMBAI: Sling TV is launching the Sling Latino brand. This is a live and on demand, over-the-top streaming service, giving Spanish-speaking and bilingual viewers more choice in TV content.
Viewers can select from two base packages, “Paquete Total” (22 channels for $12 per month) or “Paquete Esencial” (16 channels for $7 per month), each with live and on-demand content ranging from sports and general entertainment to movies and family programming.
The company said that whether viewers are solely interested in Spanish-language programming or are looking to supplement an English line-up with a few Spanish channels, Sling Latino is a flexible, affordable and mobile way to connect viewers with the best of Latino programming.
In addition to “Paquete Total” and “Paquete Esencial,” Sling Latino is launching two packages featuring channels from Colombia and Spain. This enables viewers to custom tailor their programming, including the flexibility to combine Spanish-language services with Sling TV’s “Best of Live TV” English offering into one user experience.
Like the “Best of Live TV” service, Sling Latino requires no long-term contract, no credit check, and there are no hidden fees. The service can be turned on almost immediately, with no installation required beyond a simple app download. Customers will be able to view the new Sling Latino standalone services and add-on packs to all Sling TV-supported devices.
The announcement follows on the heels of Sling TV’s launch of two Spanish language “add-on packs” for $5 each per month, “Deportes Extra” (which recently expanded to include ESPN Deportes) and “Películas & Novelas Extra.” Both packages require a subscription to the “Best of Live TV” English core service and are designed to meet the contemporary viewing needs of bilingual millennials.
In addition to live TV, Sling Latino also offers an on-demand library and a three-day replay on select channels. The on-demand library for “Paquete Total,” “Paquete Esencial” and “Películas & Novelas Extra” will soon include top hits from current and past shows on Univision channels.
