Reading the post on B6s old planes and the link posted about the price that B6 got their Airbuses at it ws stated that live TV was not available on the JFK San Juan route. Why is this??

Can live TV be operated on Trans Atlantic and Pacific routes??

I believe and I could be wrong it has something with being able to receive the signal. I thought that is what someone said at one time.

1 - EMB 190 will have TV on board

2 - Signal can be picked up, however the route takes you over international water and copyright limitations from networks limits display outside of US/FCC jurisdiction.

I was on a B6 flight JFK-SJU in Feb 2003. When the Satellite TV died about 1hr from JFK the flight attendant said all the DirectTV satellites are pointed over TX where DirectTV is based. Whether I believe this or not is another story but thats just what a flight attendant told me! -Matt in KITH

The satellite on jetBlue's aircrafts are, naturally, very small. It simply cannot pick-up signals outside of the lower 48.

This question has been asked quite a few times before. You'll find more detailed information if you do a search. In short, DirecTV's satellite 'footprint' or coverage area is very tightly focused on the Continental US and weakens very quickly off the coasts. Thus, in Puerto Rico and Alaska, much larger dishes must be used for DirecTV. That's not an option on an airplane, so the TV doesn't work. It has nothing to do with copyrights as Puerto Rico is considered part of the US even though it doesn't have statehood.

Yes, they do.

Though on all Song flights to San Juan, as well as all jetBlue flights to Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic starting later this year, the on-demand movie service is available.
