Comcast has announced plans to bring Sling TV to its X1 platform. The streaming TV service will offer even more content options to Comcast customers, including hundreds of new multicultural programs and channels.

"The addition of Sling TV's multicultural programming will be an excellent complement to the existing international offerings on X1 and will be attractive to our customers," said Javier Garcia, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Multicultural Services for Comcast Cable. "Our customers are becoming increasingly diverse and this is a fantastic opportunity to quickly deliver even more customized and multicultural programming to them, on an X1 platform that's smart, fast and easy-to-use."

Sling TV offers a variety of live streaming and on-demand programming packages with a total library of more than 425 channels, including 320+ multicultural networks in 21 languages. The service's multicultural packages start at $10 per month. In addition, the base Sling TV Orange plan currently costs $20 per month and features more than 30 channels, including Disney/ESPN stations. Meanwhile, the base Sling TV Blue plan costs $25 per month and features more than 40 channels, including FOX and NBC stations. Finally, customers can also opt to combine both plans for $40 per month. 

"Sling TV’s debut on Comcast’s X1 is another step forward in our promise to consumers to be available on their favorite platforms," said Ben Weinberger, Chief Product Officer, Sling TV. "For the first time, millions of Comcast customers will have access to new multicultural programming options as well as the full suite of Sling TV programming."

An exact launch date for Sling TV on the Comcast X1 platform has not been announced yet.
