  1. Comcast Adding Sling TV to X1

    Comcast (NASDAQ: CMCSA ) announced plans to offer DISH's Sling TV over-the-top (OTT) video service on the X1 platform. The Internet -based Sling TV app will offer more than 425 channels, including 320+ multicultural networks in 21 languages. The companies are working on the integration now and will provide more details when the content is available to customers. "The addition of Sling TV's multicultural programming will be an excellent complement to the existing international offerings on X1 and will be attractive to our customers," said Javier Garcia, Comcast's senior vice president and general manager, Multicultural Services. "Our customers are becoming increasingly diverse, and this is a fantastic opportunity to quickly deliver even more customized and multicultural programming to them, on an X1 platform that's smart, fast and easy to use." "Sling TV's debut on Comcast's X1 is another step forward in our promise to consumers to be available on their favorite platforms," said Ben Weinberger, chief product officer, Sling TV. "For the first time, millions of Comcast customers will have access to new multicultural programming options as well as the full suite of Sling TV programming." Pricing for Sling TV services on X1 will be consistent with current offers on other platforms. Sling TV's multicultural packages start at $10 per month. All Sling TV packages will be available, including custom packaging with genre- and language-specific add-ons. X1 is a cloud-based platform that combines live TV, on demand content, a cloud DVR, and streaming video from the web. The platform includes a voice remote control as well as Spanish user-interface. X1 is currently available across Comcast's entire footprint. Comcast recently added Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) to the X1 platform as well.
