Sling TV And NeoNova Launch OTT Program

Monday, Apr 04, 2016

NeoNova, a broadband division of the National Rural Telecommunications Cooperative (NRTC) and an industry leader in cloud-based technologies and services for regional telcos and ISPs, today announced a new referral program that allows its affiliates to promote Sling TV, a live and on-demand over-the-top (OTT) television service.

The program allows affiliates to refer their customers to Sling TV, which distributes some of the most popular channels like ESPN, AMC and HGTV on TVs, tablets, phones and computers. This new program is the result of NeoNova's continuous effort to develop solutions, both internally and with key collaborators, to help its affiliates make money, save money and increase customer loyalty.

NeoNova CEO Ray Carey shared the reasoning behind this new program. "Our affiliates are the go-to local providers for new technologies in their serving areas. We've been working with traditional video content and our ViewLocal™ platform for years, and we're excited to add a program that allows our affiliates to promote Sling TV's programming services," said Carey. "Not only will they be able to realize additional revenue, but they can continue to drive awareness with their customers about new services like Sling TV."

Sling TV provides a selection of the most popular national television channels without long-term contracts, allowing customers to enjoy the best of live TV via an easy-to-use interface across multiple devices, anywhere they have an Internet connection. Sling TV's "Best of Live TV" package includes more than 20 channels for $20 per month. The package delivers ESPN, ESPN2, AMC, A&E, TNT, HISTORY, VICELAND, TBS, Food Network, HGTV, Travel Channel, IFC, El Rey, Adult Swim, Cartoon Network, Freeform, Disney Channel, CNN, Newsy, Bloomberg TV, Local Now, Flama, Lifetime and Galavisión. This package additionally features live access to WatchESPN, including ESPN3 and on-demand content. Customers can choose to customize their entertainment experience with the addition of HBO for $15 per month more and Cinemax for $10 per month more. Additional a la carte-like add-ons include Sports Extra, Hollywood Extra, Kids Extra, Lifestyle Extra, World News Extra, Broadcast Extra and Spanish language add-ons, Best of Spanish TV, Deportes Extra and Películas & Novelas Extra, each $5 per month more.
