Discount airline JetBlue already offers its passengers 36 channels of DIRECTV, but today it has added another.
The New York-based airline will now broadcast the WNYW-FOX5 station on all of its flights. WNYW is a more local New York City station, featuring local news and programs.
The announcement means that JetBlue now offers the most in-flight live television channels of any U.S. airline.
JetBlue’s vice president of marketing, Andrea Spiegel, said the new channel would give customers another way of staying in touch with the latest events in New York.
Along with the local news, WNYW features popular programs such as American Idol, The OC, 24, and House.
