Dish’s Sling TV to add Univision channels over-the-top

Sling_Television_LogoDish-owned Sling TV announced today a deal with Universal Communications that will add Univision-owned channels to Sling’s over-the-top (OTT) television service. The deal includes Univision Network, UniMás, UDN (Univision Deportes Network), Galavisión, El Rey Network, Bandamax, De Película, De Película Clásico, Telehit, tlnovelas, and FOROtv.

Univision and UniMás broadcast stations throughout the nation are also included in the distribution agreement. Sling TV plans to announce more details about the availability of the channels in the coming weeks.

“Hispanics are the demographic most engaged with mobile devices, making Univision a natural match for Sling TV,” said Sling TV CEO, Roger Lynch.

“Sling TV’s next generation TV service aligns with our strategy to deliver the best experiences to our diverse audience, while also partnering with a distributor that has for decades been hyper focused on the Hispanic consumer,”  said Tonia O’Connor, president, content distribution and corporate business development.

In January at CES 2015, Dish announced a standalone OTT television service that will cost about $20 per month and include viewing options on multiple devices such as TVs, tablets, smartphones, and game consoles.
