DishWorld rebrands to Sling International; Adds content in Bengali, Kannada & Marathi

Sling TV

Dish Network has rebranded its international live-streaming web TV service DishWorld to Sling International, which will allow users to access content from its US-only Sling TV app as well. It has also added content in Bengali, Kannada and Marathi to Sling International. With this Sling International now offers about 200 channels in 18 languages, including Arabic, Bangla, Brazilian, Cantonese, Filipino, Gujarati, Hindi, Malayalam, Mandarin, Punjabi, Taiwanese, Tamil, Telugu, Urdu and Vietnamese.


Current DishWorld subscribers will receive a prompt to upgrade to Sling International, when they log in the next time. The basic Sling International package costs $15 per month, with the option of adding TV shows from US networks available on Sling TV. This service is currently available on Xbox One, Roku, and Amazon Fire TV & Fire TV stick, besides the Android and iOS apps for smartphones and tablets. New subscribers will get one month of free service.

It’s worth noting that the basic $15 package only allows for streaming on one device at a time. Users can opt to pay an extra $5 per month to get the Family View, which allows for concurrent streaming on three devices.

Sling International

Unfortunately, this service is not yet available in India, which is a shame. The Indic language offerings aren’t what Indian viewers would be greatly interested in, but now that it’s possible to access the core Sling TV offerings (which include shows like Mad Men, The Walking Dead and very soon Game of Thrones) it would’ve been great if the service was available in India.
