Southwest Brings Free In-Flight TV To Your iPad
The service – known as TV Flies Free – is being offered in partnership with pay TV provider DISH, and will give travelers access to live television and around 75 on-demand shows.
Streaming will work on a range of personal devices like tablets, laptops and smart phones. There's no need to download any apps or jump through any hoops to watch shows – programming will run on your device's regular browser.
Since the entertainment runs over Wi-Fi and requires the use of personal electronics, you won't be able to watch shows during takeoff and landing, but hey, it's hard to complain about free TV. You can access the service on any of Southwest's 400 Wi-Fi enabled planes.
