The deal will enable Slingshot to sell SKY television services and bundle SKY with their homeline, broadband and mobile products. The new quadruple play offering can all be invoiced on the one Slingshot bill.

Mark Callander, Chief Executive Officer of CallPlus and Slingshot was excited about the opportunity as it will play a pivotal role in the company’s growth plans moving forward.

“Allowing our customers to add SKY to their Slingshot monthly invoice will not only deliver the convenience of one bill, but enables us to deliver great value bundle offerings for Slingshot customers. We are really looking forward to working with SKY to launch their television offering to our customers later this year. We already offer unmetering of the online iSKY service so we see this as a natural and mutually beneficial extension of that relationship,” he says.

John Fellet SKY Television Chief Executive Officer added, “We are delighted to have CallPlus join us as a new telecommunications partner. We know how successful the reselling of SKY services can be and believe that Mark and his team at Slingshot will deliver significant benefits to consumers by bundling SKY with their innovative ISP and voice products in the near future.”

Details on launch timing will be made available in due course.

1 year has now elapsed since this announcement, but no signs of any Sky TV package deals from Slingshot.

Come on Slingshot, now is an opportune time especially as Sky TV have announced price increases.
