Continental Airlines has quietly started offering passengers LiveTV’s newest live television service LTV3 on a single Boeing 737. So why didn’t the airline do a big press splash? Other than obvious competitive reasons (I mean, come on, this is going to be the most kick-ass live TV offering in the skies), I’m not quite certain.
However, LiveTV assures me that 80-plus channels are coming “very soon”.
Also, there has been no free trial. “All services are paid access,” says LiveTV, adding: “The system is performing very well.”
Continental intends to outfit with LTV3 every seat on its Boeing 737 new generation aircraft and Boeing 757-300s.
Speaking of TV, did you know that AirTran passengers are chomping at the bit for HDTV? Don’t believe me?
Check out the carrier’s new EveryFlight web site, which polls passengers about what they want to see onboard the carrier’s aircraft. HDTV is pacing at number one right now, followed by Foosball!?! and Wi-Fi, of course.
