Sling Launches DraftKings Channel for Sports Betting

Today, Sling TV launched a new sports betting channel in partnership with DraftKings. Sling subscribers can now turn to the DraftKings Basketball channel to check out game scores and betting odds in real time.

Along with the DraftKings Basketball channel, Sling TV will be launching DraftKings Baseball and DraftKings Hockey channels in the coming weeks. The channel additions are a result of the partnership between Dish and DraftKings, announced in March.

“This new channel is just the beginning of how we plan to bring the DraftKings sports betting experience to Sling TV customers,” said Michael Schwimmer, President, Sling TV. “We will continue expanding and enhancing our offerings to be the ultimate entertainment experience for sports fans.”

To celebrate the new channel, Sling TV and DraftKings have a special offer for customers. New DraftKings customers get a $50 FREE bet by using promo code “SLING,” in addition to a deposit bonus of up to $1,000 with their first deposit.

“DraftKings continually looks at new ways to reach customers through innovative collaborations with recognizable brands such as SLING TV,” said Paul Liberman, President of Product and Technology and co-founder at DraftKings. “We are thrilled to expand this relationship, which will offer SLING TV customers an entirely new viewership experience through this first-of-its-kind streaming service.”
