Comcast and Sling TV have confirmed that Sling TV, the live and on demand Internet TV service, will launch on the X1 platform, giving Comcast’s X1 customers access over the Internet to even more content, including hundreds of new multicultural programmes and channels. The companies are working to add Sling TV to X1 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, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Multicultural Services for Comcast Cable. “Our customers are becoming increasingly diverse and this is a fantastic opportunity to quickly deliver even more customised 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 favourite 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.”
