These offerings can be accessed via Delta’s seatback screens, equipped with Panasonic IFE systems and made available through the Viasat satellite network.
“Live TV is a vital component of our commitment to delivering a connected living room experience on Delta flights, regardless of the traveler’s destination,” remarked Ekrem Dimbiloglu, Managing Director of In-Flight Entertainment and Connectivity at Delta Air Lines.
“We view the aircraft as the ultimate platform for entertainment and exploration, and achieving this milestone brings us one step closer to transforming that vision into reality across an increasing number of routes.”
Doug Eichler, Senior Vice President at DirecTV Business Solutions, added, “We are excited not only to introduce our top-tier live TV service to Delta Air Lines but also to make aviation history by being the first to offer this kind of in-flight entertainment.”
