Mexicanal has expanded its US footprint by entering the over-the-top market through an agreement with Sling TV.
Although the Mexican channel was already available in the US for DirecTV subscribers and selected Comcast (Xfinity) and Mediacom markets, it will now grow its distribution reach across the country with one of the leading live and on-demand streaming television services.
Sling TV customers who subscribe to the Mexico package will gain access to news, entertainment and sports programming produced by Mexican public TV, independent houses and local TV stations.
“We are very pleased to now be part of the Sling TV family, a television service we know is becoming more and more popular with our audience,” said Luis Torres-Bohl, president, Mexicanal. “Making Mexicanal available to the growing customer base of Spanish-language Sling TV subscribers will have an immediate positive impact, making it possible for many Mexican-Americans to connect to their heritage and culture through this over-the-top platform.”
Mexicanal’s programming includes originally-produced content such as the Liga Mexicana de Jaripeo Profesional (LMJP), the docu-reality Fuerza Necaxa, Notas al Migrante and Contigo Paisano.
Sling TV’s Mexico programming is available for $10 per month when purchased on a standalone basis, or $5 per month when combined with Sling Orange, Sling Blue or any Spanish-language service.
