Sling TV has confirmed that Disney Star channels and content have returned to the live TV service’s lineup, increasing the variety of South Asian programming across Sling’s packages and services.

While Sling Orange and Sling Blue are the most well-known live TV packages offered by Sling TV, the service also offers a variety of international packages as well. It is some of these packages that are mostly going to benefit from this latest change.

According to Sling, the relaunch of Disney Star results in 19 live South Asian channels across 7 languages, and 150 hours of on-demand entertainment every week from Disney Star’s portfolio, becoming available.

Some of the channels that have been added as part of this deal include Star Plus (Hindi), Vijay TV (Tamil), Asianet (Malayalam), Star Maa (Telugu), Star Jalsha (Bengali), Star Pravah (Marathi) and Star Suvarna (Kannada). In addition, Sling Freestream users will get access to the English-dubbed Life OK channel.

We have been looking for a way to bring Disney Star’s content back to DISH and SLING because it is beloved by our South Asian customers,” said Liz Riemersma, vice president of business development, strategy and international, Sling TV. “The addition of Star’s 19 live channels and a selection of Hotstar’s original programs will provide our customers with the best South Asian content, all in one place.”

For those signed up to one of Sling TV’s main base plans, they will need to add one of Sling’s South Asian packages, such as Dakshin, Desi Binge or Hindi Pack, to their subscription to gain access to the newly-added Disney Star programming and Hotstar Specials.
