BBC Worldwide Latin America has announced that its preschool network CBeebies will be added to the portfolio of Sling TV's new Hispanic platform Sling Latino.

The DISH-owned over-the-top (OTT) platform, which includes live streaming and video-on-demand (VOD) content, targets Hispanic and bilingual audiences across the US, offering TV content through the Internet.

Sling Latino, the launch of which was announced by DISH at the beginning of June, will add the BBC channel to the two basic packages available so far: the Paquete Total (22 networks for $12 a month) and Paquete Esencial (16 channels for $7 a month).

The children's channel continues to expand throughout the US Hispanic market, launching on a number of different platforms, and strengthening its position in the Latino community.

At the end of April, CBeebies also announced the launch of its VOD and mobile app for parents and kids across Latin America.
