ENGLEWOOD, Colo., April 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- SLING TV is donating 100% of its movie rental profits to Good360 today through April 5. Good360 is a global nonprofit leader that is delivering critical supplies to healthcare providers and first responders, those quarantined, and those facing adverse economic impacts as the nation battles COVID-19.
During this partnership, SLING TV is offering streamers on-demand access to theater releases including "The Invisible Man," "The Hunt," "Emma" and "I Still Believe."
"With SLING TV's help, we are further able to support communities with limited access to critical supplies, quarantined individuals and families, as well as those impacted by job loss, to help our nation in this great time of crisis," said Matt Connelly, CEO, Good360. "During these unprecedented times, Good360 is leveraging decades of learned best practices, our network of corporate donors and our vast nonprofit partner base to get needed goods into the hands of those who need them most."
"The best way to protect our communities is to stay home," said Warren Schlichting, group president, SLING TV. "The second best thing we all can do is support our caregivers and those who are battling this virus and don't get to stay home. Our hope is that our partnership with Good360 will give Americans another reason to stay safe while supporting those in need. Every action helps."
Stay in & SLING
SLING TV's support of Good360 is an expansion of the "Stay in & SLING" initiative, which aims to keep Americans safe, informed and entertained while practicing social distancing at home during the pandemic. To join in this effort, consumers (SLING TV subscribers and non-subscribers alike) can rent a movie from SLING TV's video-on-demand catalog, featuring thousands of titles1.
As a public service, SLING TV recently unlocked its news-rich SLING Blue service for 14 days free. SLING TV subscribers are invited to give back by renting movies on supported devices2. Non-subscribers can participate by visiting sling.com, or accessing the SLING TV free experience on a Roku or Android device, and renting a movie from the "Rentals" screen. SLING TV will donate all of its profits from movie rental purchases, a minimum of 20% of the rental price, to Good360 COVID-19 relief efforts.
