Slingbox 500 Launches DishWorld International TV App


Sling has unveiled a second app for their high end Slingbox 500, a placeshifter with benefits. And, like the company’s first foray in reverse streaming, the EchoStar subsidiary dabbles in nepotism with the launch of DISHWorld — a service that offers a variety of international programming, including live “television” and a sports package that runs $10/month. I’d hoped to take it on a quick spin prior to leaving town for the weekend but, sadly, was hit by the Friday night streaming blues. So I’ll just have to add this, along with Roku Slingcatching, to my growing project list. Meanwhile, I still think Sling would be better served by introducing a lower end streamer and bringing WiFi to the mid-tier, while continuing to work cable partnerships.

  1. It’s interesting that it’s missing some of the European languages, and German in particular. Hopefully they will expand this soon!
