Sometimes it can be hard to find channels that offer programming for bilingual audiences, but if you’re a subscriber to Sling TV, you’re in luck.

Dish Network’s Internet TV service has launched two Latino add-on packs to the service’s “Best of Live TV” core package. For $5 a month each, you can add “Deportes Extra” or “Películas & Novelas Extra” to the fold.

“Bilingual millennials have asked for variety in content, language and mobility, and our offering of the most popular Latino genres makes it easy to customize a flexible, affordable solution,” said Roger Lynch, CEO of Sling TV. “Over time, we expect to expand our Latino offering with more sports, shows and movies that viewers want to see in the language they prefer.”

Deportes Extra is a boon to Spanish speakers seeking sports with a more International slant. The package will include top programming from a host of Spanish sports networks, including Azteca, beIN Sports en Español, beIN Sports HD (English), Univision, Univision Deportes and UniMás.

Those who add Peliculas and Novelas Extra will be treated to popular Spanish-language movies and telenovelas. Channels in that package include Az Corazón, Cinelatino, De Película, De Película Clásico, Pasiones, Univision tlnovelas, Univision and UniMás.

The new bundles add to Sling TV’s already diverse variety of bundle packs, which include offerings like Sports Extra, World News Extra, and Kids Extra, each of which run an extra $5/month on top of Sling TV’s $20/month core channel pack. The Best of Live TV core pack has a diverse channel selection of its own, offering popular networks like AMC, CNN, TNT, HGTV, Cartoon Network, and several others.

The additional Spanish language packages make Sling TV the first Internet TV provider with a customizable offering that incorporates live Spanish and English programming. The packages also include video on demand content. The company claims more details about further Latino channels will roll out in the next few weeks.
