ESPN3, ESPN’s multi-screen digital network that delivers thousands of live sporting events annually, launched as part of Sling TV’s Orange service today. According to Sling this is the first time that ESPN3 is integrated directly within a pay-TV provider’s channel guide. ESPN3 will come with the Sling Orange package at no extra cost.
Sling TV also launched SEC Network+, a digital channel for additional SEC Network live events, allowing customers to switch between multiple SEC games airing simultaneously. SEC+ will be offered as part of the Sling Orange “Sports Extra” package at $5 per month.
“Adding ESPN3 and SEC Network+ into our guide means sports fans now have access to some of the most intense athletic match-ups of the year in one place,” said Roger Lynch, CEO of Sling TV. “With Sling TV, fans can sign-up for our service and begin watching the game within minutes and keep up with their favorite team all season long.”
ESPN3 and SEC Network+ bring Sling Orange customers access to thousands of live events, including college football, college basketball, NCAA Championships, tennis, soccer, cricket and more, all within the Sling TV app. The 2016 college football season on ESPN networks features more than 800 games and 20 conferences.
