  • Streaming service provider Sling TV now accepts bitcoin payments.
  • Existing customers can prepay 1-6 months of service using bitcoin and cryptocurrencies.
  • New customers must pay for the first month using legacy payment methods and can use bitcoin payments starting in the second month.

Sling TV, the cord-cutting service provider that allows its users to stream over 700 television channels via its app, announced on Friday they would accept Bitcoin payments through an integration with BitPay, a pioneer of global cryptocurrency payment services.

“Accepting crypto payments for this OTT digital platform was clearly the obvious next step for our subscribers,” the company said in the announcement post.

Sling TV LLC, otherwise known as Sling Media Inc, was purchased in 2007 by DISH, a company that made headlines back in 2014 for being the largest company at the time to accept Bitcoin payments.
