Last week, Dish and Sling TV announced that they have hired former Fuse CEO Michael Schwimmer to run Sling and Dish’s international TV services.
“Michael is one of the key architects of what has become the Dish TV and Sling TV international businesses, and everything we are doing today traces directly back to his early work at Dish delivering international content,” Warren Schlichting said in a press release. “His track record of creativity and innovation in our industry will be a tremendous asset for Dish as we seek growth in our international offerings.”
Schwimmer first joined Dish in the 1990s, but he left in 2005. Now he is returning to his former employer in a new role.
Sling TV has long been a major player in the world of international streaming. Before there was Sling TV there was Dish International, a streaming service offering access to international content, which was later rebranded to Sling International. Now it looks like Dish and Sling have new leadership to continue their international efforts.
