During the past several weeks, we’ve received a lot of questions about Sling International, so instead of continuing to reply to each comment or e-mail individually, we thought it’d be more helpful to everyone to answer your questions in this public post.
First, the basics. What is Sling International (formerly known as DishWorld)?
Sling International is an online streaming service that broadcasts a variety of channels to your computer, tablet or smartphone. Whatever is being shown on the TV channel is the same thing you’ll see on Sling International. The Sling International service offers (depending on which package you sign up for) 100’s of channels.
For soccer fans, the Sports package is particularly beneficial, offering you live streaming of beIN SPORT, beIN SPORT Espanol and One World Sports, among other channels. With beIN SPORT and beIN SPORT Espanol on Sling International, you’ll have access to La Liga, Serie A, Ligue Un, Capital One Cup and leagues including the Championship and Russian Premier League. One World Sports offers Arsenal TV, Chelsea TV, Bayern Munich TV and the J-League.
For TV schedules of La Liga, Serie A, Ligue Un, the Championship and Russian Premier League, visit our soccer TV schedule page.
Is it legal?
Absolutely. It’s part of the same company as Dish Network. But note that you don’t need a subscription to Dish, the satellite TV network. And if you do subscribe to Dish, Sling International is not given for free to its satellite TV subscribers.
Is it available worldwide?
It’s only for US residents. But if you live outside the USA, you can get Sling TV. First, sign up for a free trial to Unblockus, a smart DNS service that allows you to change your IP address to the US. Then sign up for the free Sling Internatioanl trial.
How much does it cost?
Just $10/month. There’s no contract, and no commitment is required. It’s on a pay-as-you-go model. Sign up to Sling International for $10/month.
Who is Sling International best for?
If you’re a soccer fan who doesn’t have access to beIN SPORT via your TV provider, or you’re a cord cutter, Sling International is ideal for you. Or if you’re an Arsenal or Chelsea fan and you want to watch programs from your official club, Sling International’s streaming of One World Sports (that shows Arsenal TV and Chelsea TV) is perfect.
Does Sling International show beIN SPORT Play?
Not at this time. beIN SPORT Play is the online site where beIN SPORT sometimes shows overflow programming that it doesn’t have room to put on beIN SPORT or beIN SPORT Espanol. But Sling International does not provide you with access to the beIN SPORT Play service.
