Dish-owned streaming service Sling TV is redoubling its efforts to attract Latino millennial cord-cutters. Less than a month after it began offering Spanish-language “add-on” packages to its existing English-language lineup, it launched Sling Latino, a standalone service targeting customers only interested in Spanish-language channels, at a lower cost than its English-language base plan.
Viewers can pick from either the Sling Latino Paquete Esencial, which offers 16 live channels for $7-a-month or the 22-channel Paquete Total for $12-a-month without having to subscribe to Sling’s $20-a-month English-language base plan.
Both services also include on-demand content and a 3-day replay on select channels.
Sling Latino is also offering two country-specific packages – featuring channels from Colombia and Spain.
Here are the current Sling Latino offerings:
