Today cable replacer Sling TV announced that it has finally expanded into Puerto Rico.
Dish general manager Reynaldo Pagani said in the announcement that “Dish has served customers in Puerto Rico for 20 years, and we have been proud to lead the way in delivering the best experience in both service and technology.”
Dish and Sling seem to have realized that Puerto Ricans are just as frustrated with traditional TV as other Americans. “We’ve received hundreds of requests a day from Puerto Ricans interested in Sling TV,” explained Sling TV’s GM of Spanish-language programming, Jose Romero.
One of Sling TV’s strengths is its Spanish-language add-on packs. Sling TV offers Spanish-language networks like Univision and Unimas as part of its standard Blue subscription plans. Additional extras let subscribers add Spanish-language channels from Mexico, Central and South America as well as stations from across the Caribbean.
“Our goal with this launch is to connect Puerto Rican customers with the programming they love,” said Romero, adding that Sling TV’s service provides Puerto Ricans with an “easy option for Spanish and English television at the best value.”
