Sling Orange channels sweepstakes ends with a huge payout
Sling orange channel sweepstake has ended with a massive payout for winners.
The channel’s $4.2 million prize pool was a record for the channel and its sister channel, iHeartRadio.
It also surpassed the $1 million prize the channel earned in its initial phase.
The sweepstakes started on February 23, and was open for three weeks.
During the three weeks, the prize pool went from $2 million to $4 million, according to iHeartMedia.
It was a new record for Sling, which had previously raised $1.3 million in its first phase.
“We are extremely excited to see this milestone reached,” iHeart Media CEO Dave Wojcicki said in a statement.
“The sweepstakes is an exciting step towards a bigger and better Sling future.”
The $4m prize was an unprecedented $2.9 million in the first phase of the sweepstakes.
It will be the largest prize in Sling’s history.
The channel has also become a hot topic of discussion.
The Sling website and mobile app have been flooded with complaints, and many users have expressed frustration at not receiving the service.
In a statement to Business Insider, Sling said the $4M prize was “the largest prize that iHeart has ever had.”
“I am incredibly grateful to everyone who participated in this exciting sweepstakes and the many fans who participated through the social media platforms,” iheartMedia CEO David Wojczicki wrote.
Sling is owned by Charter Communications.
