Sling TV announced that DishWorld, the live streaming multi-language television service, is now “Sling International.” The move officially marries the largest provider of streamed international channels in the U.S. with Sling TV, the recently-launched provider of live, over-the-top, OTT, domestic TV service. Sling International provides global programming from nearly 200 channels in 18 languages to U.S. households, starting at $15 per month. “Sling TV grew from the foundation established by DishWorld, enabling us to test, grow and improve our OTT capabilities through a service that streams tens of millions of hours of content every month,” said Roger Lynch, CEO of Sling TV. “Incorporating DishWorld into the Sling TV portfolio makes it even easier for viewers to get the best of both domestic programming and the shows and sports they love from overseas.” Sling TV is a subsidiary of DISH Network (DISH).
