PORTLAND, Ore.—Evoca is bringing its ATSC 3.0-based OTA-OTT hybrid pay-TV service to television viewers here, the company announced today.

The move comes on the heels of Evoca announcing May 25 a new partnership with SLING to bring SLING Orange and SLING Blue to its subscribers at a discount. Evoca will offer subscribers in the Portland area more than 60 channels, including news, sports and weather, for $25 per month plus receiver. It also offers ROOT Sports Northwest, a lineup of regional sports favorites, including the Trail Blazers, Mariners, Timbers, Thorns and Kraken.

Three SLING bundles or available: SLING Orange, SLING Blue and both. Adding one costs an additional $55 monthly; together they cost $70 a month—a $5 discount off regular pricing. Those subscribing to Evoca and SLING receive the sports package as part of the deal, the company said. 

“We understand the importance of providing high-quality, affordable television to communities around the country and we’re excited to be launching in Portland. Fans will have access to their favorite local teams for a fraction of the cost,” said Todd Achilles, CEO and president of Evoca.
