Cinedigm said it reached an agreement that puts three of its streaming channels on Dish's Sling TV service.
The three channels are Dove Channel, CONtv and Docurama.
"Since its inception, Sling TV has been at the forefront of live TV streaming," said Jennifer Soltesz, VP of business development & strategy at Cinedigm. "Working with Sling TV not only allows us to reach a diverse, new audience, but it gives us a partner with the same forward-thinking drive. We can't wait to show these new customers the amazing networks Cinedigm has to offer."
The company reported a big increase in streaming revenue during its most recent quarter.
When Dish reported its results for the first quarter in April, it said Sling had 2.37 million subscribers, down 100,000.
