Sling TV: number of subscribers 2013-2017 The statistic shows the number of Sling TV subscribers from 2013 to 2017. The streaming service, launched by Dish Network, reportedly had 2.21 million subscribers by the 2017. During a recent survey in the United States, six percent of those who subscribe to online video or music services stated that they had an active Sling TV subscription. Retirees were the most likely to subscribe to the service, as eight percent of them confirmed doing so during the survey. Dish Network, the owner of Sling TV, announced record revenue of 15.09 billion U.S. dollars in 2016, up from 12.64 billion U.S. dollars in 2010.
Sling TV subscribers – additional information

Sling TV is a U.S.-only live TV streaming service and a subsidiary of Dish Network, one of the largest pay TV providers in the U.S.. The platform was introduced as an alternative to cable TV and video-on-demand services. Unlike other streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu, Sling TV subscribers can access live TV content of more than 20 channels, such as ESPN, TNT, Food Network, Bloomberg and AMC, over the internet. Sling TV aims to stay competitive in the growing streaming market by differentiating itself from on-demand services. Sling TV is rather a collection of popular live streaming channels, previously only available to cable TV.

Since its release, Sling TV has rapidly gained space in the streaming market. The number of Sling TV subscribers increased from 54 thousand in 2014 to 2.21 million by the end of 2017. However, the service still has some way to go to catch up to some of the market leaders such as Amazon Prime Instant Video, Hulu and HBO Now. Netflix, the clear leader in the market, had over 50 million streaming subscribers in the United States in 2017.
