Sling TV, a US-based streaming TV service that is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Dish Network, has announced that it will accept cryptocurrencies through BitPay.


Virtual TV subscribers can now pay for their subscriptions with cryptocurrencies such as Dogecoin via BitPay.



Sling TV's 2.5 million users will soon be able to use BitPay-supported cryptocurrencies like Dogecoin, Litecoin, Shiba Inu, Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, and Wrapped Bitcoin.


BitPay, one of the largest blockchain payment firms in the world, also has over 90 cryptocurrency wallets.


Elon Musk said,


"Of sure, you can pay in DOGE."

Elon Musk, Tesla's CEO, revealed over the weekend that Tesla charging stations will be able to accept Dogecoin as payment in the future.


On Twitter, the CEO added, "And, of course, you may pay in DOGE." Tesla's Ryan Zohoury tagged Musk in a post regarding Tesla charging stations that opened recently in Santa Monica, and Musk reacted.


According to Elon Musk, Tesla also wants to build "a futuristic diner/drive-in cinema" in the Hollywood district.


Recently, Dogecoin creator Billy Markus proposed using the #DogeTwitterTipJar hashtag on Twitter to "pester" the social media giant's workers.


The idea is to persuade Twitter to introduce Dogecoin tipping after allowing consumers to pay their favorite content providers in Ethereum.
