Airlines to show Super Bowl 2011 on airplanesFebruary 1st, 2011 - 12:11 am ICT by Aishwarya Bhatt
New York, Jan 31 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Passengers who will unfortunately find themselves in the air during the Super Bowl may still watch it live.
The service though is not available in all airlines and they are not certainly the same in all airlines. JetBlue will be showing the game live for its travelers on Sunday free of charge. That is right. If you happen to be on a JetBlue flight, you will get to watch the game live.
The other option available outside JetBlue is Frontier and many of the flights of Continental. The two carriers will however charge passengers $6 to watch the match though.
Although Virgin and Delta Airlines do not charge for their television services, it is highly unlikely that the airliners will be showing the game. The two airlines use the DISH Network which does not have FOX on its list of channels.
That should bother you though because if you have access to Wi-Fi on your laptop, you can purchase the Slingbox and watch the contents from your home TV. The Slingbox is $180.
The cost of using the Wi-Fi systems in the planes will cost you between $4.95 and $12.95 depending on the length of the flight.
The Super Bowl XLV is on Sunday between the Packers and the Steelers.
