Live TV coming to airborne laptops

Those addicted to live TV are about to get a new global fix. Connexion by Boeing’s in-flight Internet service is about to bring live TV to many airborne laptops.

Beginning Jan. 23, nine foreign airlines that offer the Connexion service will offer live programs from BBC World, CNBC, Eurosportnews, and either EuroNews or MSNBC. Access to the service will cost $26.95 for up to 24 hours.

The airlines to offer the service are Lufthansa, Scandinavian Airlines; Japan Airlines; Singapore Airlines; All Nippon Airways; China Airlines; Korean Air; Asiana Airlines; and El Al Israel Airlines. Austrian Airlines and Abu Dhabi’s Etihad Airways will soon launch the service as well.

JetBlue Airways and Frontier Airlines already offer similar live programming viewable on TV screens on the backs of passengers’ seats.
