It's not on all flights in the USA. ONLY United Airlines cares enough about its passengers to offer this cool channel. Though at the pilot's discretion, almost all of my United flights have had it turned on. Thank you to all of you UAL pilots out there.

UA has CH9 availabe on all flts. It is interesting to hear the ATC from centers around the world when you travel. If it was not on a specific flt, the captain did not have it turned on. You will find that most do turn it on for the customers' enjoyment. Feel free to ask a flight attendant to pass on your request to the flight deck if you are not hearing it.
