Those who have followed the growth of Sling TV since it first laid down roots may be aware that Dish experimented with the idea of providing live linear TV via a now-defunct app called Dish World. The app offered international programming long before it ventured into offering terrestrial programming targetted towards mainstream American audiences. Since the launch of Sling TV Dish and Sling have hardly shied away from its international outreach. In fact, Sling TV has the most diverse international streaming operation in the industry. It is America’s leading provider of international and multicultural programming, with content from 27 countries in 22 languages. Today the company announced that it is growing this presence with Voot. Voot, which is a leading supplier of content from India offers exclusive companion content and library content in three languages: Hindi, Kannada and Marathi.
Subscribers can also watch reality shows, like “Bigg Boss,” “Dance Deewane,” “MTV Roadies” and “MTV Splitsvilla;” critically acclaimed Voot Select web originals, like “Asur,” “Gone Game,” “Crackdown,” “Illegal” and “Marzi;” and top Hindi dramas like “Choti Sardaarni,” “Naagin” and “Bepannah” on their own schedules.
The channel is available to Sling International subscribers who have Hindi, Hindi Gold, Hindi Mega, Hindi Premium, Punjabi Hindi and Urdu Hindi. Households that want to add the channel to existing Sling TV packages like Sling Blue or Sling Orange can do so for $7.00 a month.
This could be a great option for multigenerational families.
