Sling TV adds more regional channels, becomes OTT leader in South American programming

Pay TV OTT service Sling TV announced the launch of three Argentine channels – Telefe Internacional, El Trece Internacional and Todo Noticias (TN) – in its “Sudamérica” regional pack, making Sling TV “the leader in South American content among streaming TV providers in the United States”, the company said in a release.
Telefe, Eltrece and TN join 10 other South American networks in Sudamérica, featuring content from countries like Argentina, Colombia, Ecuador and Venezuela, including Caracol, NTN24, Ecuavisa Internacional, TV Venezuela and Bolivia TV.
“The new Argentine channels not only strengthen our Spanish-language offerings, giving our customers more choice, they also make Sling TV America’s largest streaming carrier of South American content, bringing a variety of content to thousands of Argentines in the United States,” said Ankit Bishnoi, vice president of content acquisition and strategy for Sling TV.
Sudamérica is available for USD10 per month when purchased on a standalone basis, or USD5 per month when combined with “Sling Orange,” “Sling Blue” and/or any Spanish-language service from Sling TV.
