In a time where sports fans everywhere are looking for new sports-related content to watch, Sling TV is helping out its customers.
SportsGrid is the newest channel to be added to the Sling TV lineup. The channel is designed to give viewers a constant view of the market for players in fantasy sports such as fantasy basketball, baseball and football.
The founder and president of SportsGrid, Louis Maione, spoke to Sling TV this week and made a statement about the channel and what it stands for:
“SportsGrid is a lifestyle channel,” Maione said. “It’s a lifestyle channel in the way that we’re all sports-centric, and it’s an engaging, entertaining info-type channel. And we’re trying to take that core sports fan, who loves gambling, and then take the subsets off that…What does that mean? Fantasy is a detailed, drilled-down version of sports and gambling. If you know each player on both sides of the equation, and you have SportsGrid giving you the edge, you can make informed decisions. And when you start playing your fantasy, it makes you smarter. It makes you more engaged. It keeps you involved. Well, those folks are more likely to go, then, and place a bet.”
The channel is free for all viewers of Sling TV, including the streaming service’s free section, which does not even require customers to use a credit card to stream its content.
Sling TV is available for $30 a month for either its Sling Orange or Sling Blue plan. It can be streamed on the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Apple TV and Mac.
