Sling TV Is Trying to Partner with Regional ISPs

Recently Sling TV’s parent company, Dish, launched a new group called Dish Alliance Group. This new group plans to sell video services such as Sling TV to broadband-only providers around the United States.

“Many broadband companies offer their own video solution but increasing programming costs and a large number of internet-only customers have left many looking for alternate video solutions,” said a Dish marketing page touting the new division.

“Partnering with the Dish Referral Marketing Program through the Alliance Group gives your company a new sales and marketing arm with which to sell Dish video solutions to internet-only customers,” Dish added.

Dish is not the first company to offer a service like this for ISPs that do not have a TV service. fuboTV also offers a similar streaming option for ISPs that want to offer a TV option without the need to build a custom TV service on their own.

Dish seems to be hoping to build up Sling TV’s subscriber numbers by using smaller ISPs to promote the service for them. Will they be offering it as a branded service for the smaller ISP? Or will they just be promoting Sling TV, maybe as part of a bundle deal?

    This sentence makes no sense:

    “Recently parent company, Dish, launched a new group called Dish Alliance Group.”

    I rewrote it for you:

    Dish Network, parent company to Sling TV, recently launched the Dish Alliance Group, an organization that hopes to sell video services (such as Sling TV) to regional internet providers.

      Lol that’s one heck of a run on sentence. I remember my comments would get deleted when I would attempt to correct an article. Now everyone is doing it ha ha.

    That is exactly what Frontier, CenturyLink and other telco providers should be doing in areas where they don’t offer their own video package. Not just Sling, but other streamers also.

    Google fiber should jump on board too.

      From what I understand, Google Fiber is recommending to its customers in its 2 latest areas (Louisville and San Antonio) to use streamers because Google Fiber does not offer a video package in these areas, only broadband.
