Sling TV is doubling down on Spanish-language audiences: The Dish-owned online TV streaming service launched a new Spanish-language base package dubbed Sling Latino Paquete Esencial Thursday that offers viewers 16 live channels for just $7 a month. Viewers who want to access additional programming can instead opt for a 22-channel package called Paquete Total for $12 a month.

The latter package includes live feeds from networks like Univision, UniMás, Galavisión, Univision Deportes Network, beIN Sports en Español and others. Sling is also offering two country-specific live TV packages from Columbia and Spain for $7 a month each.

Sling TV launched Spanish-language programming as an add-on package to its existing English-language programming last month. However, this is the first time the company has made content from Univision and others available without the need to also subscribe to Sling’s $20-a-month English-language base plan.

The new plans come with an interesting option that has thus far been unavailable to Sling TV subscribers: Households that want to watch more than one stream at a time can opt to pay $5 for two additional simultaneous streams.

With these new plans, Sling TV competes more directly with Yaveo, a live TV service targeting a Latino audience that Directv launched at the end of last year.
