This U.S. Airline Is Adding Free Live TV To Its Domestic Flights

You can now catch up on your favorite shows while cruising at 30,000 feet. That is, if you fly with American Airlines.

The U.S. carrier has just announced that it’s now offering free live TV on more than 100 of its domestic planes. The airline will also be expanding the service to 700 other planes in the year to come.

The service comes with a catch, however. You have to have your own streaming devices – such as a smartphone, laptop, or tablet – and you must have downloaded the American Airlines app before takeoff.

The airline is currently offering 12 channels, including Bravo, CBS, CNBC, CNN, Disney Channel, ESPN, FOX, NBC, NFL Network, Telemundo, TNT, and USA.

Of course, American Airlines isn’t the first carrier to offer this perk. Delta, Southwest, and JetBlue also offer live TV on their seat-back screens on some flights.
