According to sources, Sling TV has right around 600,000 monthly subscribers.
It’s rumored Apple is chasing the Sling TV model — and now we know why. While Dish obviously pays a tidy sum to networks for the right to stream content, Sling operates with relatively low overhead when compared to traditional TV.
Sling TV is still tight-lipped about how many subscribers it actually has, so there’s no official way to confirm this rumor. Even if it’s in the ballpark, though — it’s impressive.
