SPI International said it has launched six channels to various packages of Sling TV, the OTT-TV service from Dish Network: DocuBox HD, FightBox HD, FashionBox HD, Fast&FunBox HD, 360TuneBox and NatureVision TV.
Sling TV said FashionBox, DocuBox, 360TuneBox and NatureVision have joined its Englishi Bonus Pack (for international customers); FightBox and Fast&FunBox are now part of its World Sports package, while DocuBox and FightBox (with Polish audio) have become part of Sling TV’s Polish Mosiac pack.
They join two ethnic channels from SPI that that Sling TV had already been offering – Kino Polska International and Kino Polska Muzyka International.
“SPI/FILMBOX Channels Group is excited to expand its channel portfolio on Sling TV” Stacey Sobel, executive VP of SPI International, said in a statement. “We are looking forward to adding new channels in the future in order to serve both English-language and ethnic audiences.”
Sling TV's international fare is expected to be the primary focus of its coming integration on Comcast's X1 platform.
