Continental to offer upgraded LiveTV
The inflight television service that Continental Airlines plans to offer in a large part of its domestic fleet will be based on an upgraded version of the LiveTV system currently fielded by JetBlue, Frontier Airlines, Westjet of Canada and Australia’s Virgin Blue.
Designated LTV3, the system will support 80 channels of programming instead of the 36 provided by its predecessor, delivering them to 8in widescreens instead of the 6in units in service with JetBlue and the rest.
The airline plans to implement the service – along with free air-to-ground text messaging and email – at every seat in its Boeing 737-700s, -800s, -900s and -900ERs, and 757-300s. Roll-out is due to start in February
“It's a much richer product and will be more like what people experience at home,” LiveTV marketing and sales VP Mike Moeller told Flight International magazine last week. “It's a big step for us - a major investment we’ve been working on for two years.”
