American Airlines has activated free live TV on
its first 100 domestic aircraft, with plans to extend live TV and
high-speed internet across its long-term mainline narrowbody fleet
of more than 700 aircraft during 2019.
American already offers live TV on international flights.
The twelve live TV channels powered by DISH on
domestic flights are: Bravo, CBS, CNBC, CNN, Disney Channel,
ESPN, FOX, NBC, NFL Network, Telemundo, TNT and USA.
All channels stream directly to customers’
laptops, phones or tablets free of charge.
“Our customers have told us they want a
living room experience in the air – the ability to watch free
entertainment, stream their favorite shows on-demand, charge their
phones and stay connected from start to finish during their
travels,” said Kurt Stache, Senior Vice President for Marketing,
Loyalty & Sales. “Free live TV on our mainline domestic fleet is
the latest step in making that a reality, and it complements the
live TV we offer on all of our international widebody flights
today. We are working quickly to update every part of our
fleet to give our customers excellent entertainment and
connectivity options no matter where they fly with us.”
The free live TV is now
available on more than 100 aircraft equipped with Gogo 2Ku
high-speed Wi-Fi including all 48 Airbus A320s, which are
receiving in-seat power during 2019. It is also available on more
than 60 A319s, which have power outlets in every row.
American will add free live TV to
aircraft equipped with Viasat high-speed Wi-Fi, bringing both of
these features to American’s long-term mainline narrowbody fleet
during 2019. American has high-speed Wi-Fi on 240 aircraft
including all A321T three-class transcontinental aircraft.
