As it concerns cord-cutting, there are not as many options available to our Indian friends. When it comes to streaming services that cater to those that speak the Urdu language native to many Indian countries, the choices are unfortunately limited.
Thankfully, one streaming service is well aware of these limitations and that service in Sling. Through the many packages available for Sling Urdu, Indian nationals from around the world that speak the Urdu language now have an option to cut the cord.
