Continental To Offer Free WiFi, Satellite TV For $6

Continental Airlines has announced that it will be offering Wi-Fi and satellite TV in some of its planes, thanks to a partner ship with LiveTV (owned by JetBlue.)

The TV will set economy passengers back $6, and will be free for those in First Class. Wi-Fi internet will be free for all passengers.

LiveTV services are already being used on JetBlue’s aircraft, and are also available on WestJet, Frontier Airlines Holdings Inc., Virgin Blue and AirTran. Also, Southwest Airlines Co. said earlier this month it would test Internet connectivity on four aircraft this summer.
