Can Sling TV Survive The Upcoming Competition

Dish Network Channels

Lots Of Streaming Services

Dish Network’s online streaming platform, Sling TV, has done exceptionally well over the last few months. The online streaming service from the cable provider was able to draw in more customers to their offerings due to the amazing service and quality contents they offer at an affordable price. However, Sling TV will face severe competition in the near future, as Hulu, YouTube and DirecTV will all be launching their virtual pay-TV services in the upcoming months.

Analysts have assumed that Sling TV might not be able to cope with the upcoming challenges and they might loss plenty of their subscribers. Frost & Sullivan analyst, Dan Rayburn, said in a recent interview, “Is the market big enough for all these services? The answer is no. They are all targeting the same audience, offering the same channels, and there just isn’t enough room for more than four players.”

Dish Network Channel Guide

Sling TV Faces Threat

An analyst at the Macquarie Capital USA Inc., Amy Yong, firmly believes that the technical issues Sling TV has experienced in the past will limit their competitiveness in the market. Sling TV had experienced technical issues during the broadcast of highly watched TV contents such as HBO’s fantasy drama TV series Game of Thrones.

“While the others were still taking their time to get it right, Dish rushed Sling to the market ahead of everyone. One thing about TV consumers, they aren’t very forgiving, particularly when they can get service,” Yong said. However, it has to be noted that Sling TV was able to secure approximately 1 million subscribers since its launch in February 2015.

The basic package offered by the online streaming platform during the launch was available at $20 a month and it offered some of the most popular channels including AMC, TNT, and ESPN. In the next few months, Sling was able to add FOX, NBC, ABC, and many other regional sports networks to their offerings. Roger Lynch, the CEO of Sling TV said, “At some point, there will be too many entrants and eventually a shakeout of the weaker ones. We feel confident we will come out OK.”

However, Tony Goncalves, senior VP of strategy and business development for AT&T Entertainment Group, said, “We believe there’s a market of approximately 20 million households who currently do not subscribe to pay-TV. It’s not only younger consumers. We’re looking to attract both cord-nevers and cord-cutters — those who want more choice and flexibility to access a premium content bundle more tailored to their lifestyle.”

MLB On Sling TV: Cleveland Indians Head Toronto Blue Jays

Dish Network Channels

MLB Playoffs

After the two electrifying performances of the Cleveland Indians, the Toronto Blue Jays are chin deep in trouble, as they trail the Indians 2-0. When eighteen innings of baseball was over, the Toronto Blue Jays lineup managed to make just ten hits and one run, which is very much disturbing and maddening for the Blue Jays pitchers, as they were nearly as good. The Indians were led by the star shortstop Francisco Lindor, who bagged three of the runs for Indians, and reliever Andrew Miller, who was able to strike out ten of the twelve batters he faced over the 3 2/3 innings.

Dish Network

Wild Card Game

The game 3 starter for Indians is Trevor Bauer, who was able to pitch well enough against Red Sox in the Divisional round. He lasted 4 2/3 and gave up three runs on six hits. This included long balls to Sandy Leon and Andrew Benintendi, before turning a 4-3 lead over to Andrew Miller. Bauer set career high strike out against Toronto Blue Jays on August 19 and he fanned thirteen over eight innings in the game giving up two runs. However, he was unlucky to settle for a no-decision, in a 3-2 victory win by the Indians, with a walk-off inside-the-park home run by Tyler Naquin.

Bauer was also able to pitch well against Toronto coming on to pitch five innings that were scoreless. In ALCS of previous year, the Blue Jays headed home down 2-0 to the Royals and passed the ball to Marcus Stroman. This was the worst post-season performance of the career of Stroman as he gave up four runs on eleven hits and another walk over 6 1/3 innings. This game remains the only playoff game in which he got the win with a 10-4 lead. The Toronto bullpen was able to make an 11-8 victory.

The Jays headed home down 2-0 to the Indians now and handed the ball to Marcus Stroman and he was far better in this year’s Wild Card Game, as he was able to hold the Orioles to two runs on four hits over six innings, with six strikeouts. He was lights out against Cleveland this year, and gave up just two runs in fourteen innings.

MLB playoffs are available to all the subscribers of Sling TV from Dish Network. Subscribe to Sling TV make sure that you do not miss any of the matches.

Dish Drops Some Of Their Ad Claims

Dish Network

Dish Advertisements

It is reported that Dish is discontinuing two of the three TV ad claims that were challenged by DirecTV recently. Dish Network said that they were actually planning to drop the advertisements anyway.

National Advertising Division (NAD), the self-regulatory body of Better Business Bureau has confirmed the news. “The advertiser represented to NAD in writing that it has permanently discontinued two of the three claims at issue in this challenge: the claim that DirecTV customers pay an average of over $100 per month (referred to by the parties as the “ARPU claim”) and the claim that DirecTV assesses a “Year One Price Increase” on its customers,” said NAD.

However, NAD is not looking into these claims due to the action of Dish Network. The department said that Dish explained their plans to discontinue their advertisements anyway, which is the reason they agreed to comply, and said that Dish Network disagrees with NAD treating them as though they had recommended the ads to be withdrawn. Moreover, Dish had said that they are happy that the “free channels” claim passed.

Dish Network Channels

Dish Network Ads

DirecTV had challenged the claims made by Dish Network in six television advertisements. They also took the issue with the claim of Dish of a “local channels fee”. This particular advertisement shows a pay TV installer who tells a customer that they won’t be able to watch local broadcast channels without spending more money. The Dish ad suggested that the viewers need to a pay separate fee for the local channels, but that is not the reality.

NAD concluded that the ad claims of Dish Network were directed towards the pay TV industry in general, making reference to the “introductory TV deal” a competitor. NAD said that the reasonable conclusion from the advertisements of Dish was that some of the pay TV providers might charge additional fee other than their usual service charge prices.

Dish Network added that among the eleven of the largest pay TV providers, only two satellite TV firms are not charging any fees for local channels. They also said that 58 million of the 113 million pay TV homes pay such additional fee to get local channels.
