Is It Possible To Watch Live TV In Flights?

Thu Jan 17, 2002 12:53 pm

I was wondering if there is somekind of system that allows passengers to watch live TV. News, shows, etc. while on air.

I haven´t heard of an airlines that offers this, maybe it will inerfere with the cockpit staellite devices. ??

jetBlue's TV service is live. When they first started up, the FAA had some issues with the satilite on thier planes, but jetBlue fixed it up and offers 24 channels of live television to every seat. It is a service called LiveTV, offered by DirecTv. jetBlue is the only airline to use it, but before they went under, Legend used LiveTV service as well.
