You’ll soon be able to get live ballgames on your flight

In flight entertainment

Got a press release this morning that will make frequent travelers happy:

Row 44, Inc., provider of the world’s leading In-Flight Broadband Entertainment Platform, is partnering with MLB Advanced Media, the interactive media and Internet company of Major League Baseball, to deliver live streaming video and audio broadcasts, in-flight, to passengers’ smart phones, laptops, tablets and other Wi-Fi enabled devices.

The good news: beers on a flight are, last I checked, still cheaper than beers in a ballpark. ┬áBad news: I’m guessing the cost to access this feature will be greater than bleacher seats at the majority of the ballparks.

But hey, it beats watching some bad Sandra Bullock movie, doesn’t it?

    A few years ago I was on a flight during football season. I guess they had a satellite feed or something because I flipped back and forth between several live college games, and it was free.

    Beers on a flight are $5-$6. Given the size and quality of said beers, I’ll take a ballpark beer most times, especially places like Turner, Citizen’s Bank and Citi that really went all out on their selection

      They’re free on British Air (at least for their intercontinental flights), as is wine and gin or vodka. Decent beers, too – Heineken and Fuller’s London Pride (and maybe something else – Amstel?) when I flew earlier in the summer.
