I just bought a ticket on TED for travel in November MCO-IAD-MCO. Does TED have PTVs in every seat? Or just regular overhead TVs?

When I flew TED in March or April, I forget, they were serving T.G.I. Friday's sandwiches as well as some other brand that I don't recall. I didn't want to shell out the $7.00, but my travelling companion did and he said the T.G.I. sandwich was really good. Their TVs are mounted in the overhead so you have to watch TED's brand of NBC (Which incidentally is made CUSTOM for TED by NBC - how can a low-fare carrier pay the largest network in the U.S. to make custom entertainment for flights and still claim to make money? Just something wierd about that in my opinion).

Here's a link to inflight services on Ted which provides you with a listing of the current offerings for BOB: http://www.flyted.com/meetted/inflightservices.htm

UAL has a similar page for mainline flights.

I think UA has a contract with NBC, their inflight entertainment on mainline has been NBC In-flight for many years. It seems natural that NBC do the programming for Ted. Plus, it isn't THAT expensive, and is only charged for the original taping. It's not like they pay everytime they show it.

To add some other responses, the A320s have the flip down screens, however, I heard somewhere that UA was considering offering those handheld IFE systems at one point on Ted...don't hold me to that though. I flew Ted in late July in the morning, and they offered some sort of bagel sandwhich for $6.00 I think.
