Once a dream, now a reality...
Not even 2 months ago we wrote the article, "Hello way down below! IPTV from 35,000 feet in the air?
", and dreamed about streaming TV to our laptops in the sky. In that article we wrote, "But one day, we will take our laptops, Playstation Portables, or other wireless devices onto planes and easily connect to the Internet to watch TV streamed from anywhere in the world. Now that’s our idea of home entertainment in the sky."
Starting this summer, Boeing will be doing just that. Yesterday, Boeing celebrated its one-year in-service anniversary by announcing it will begin to offer Internet TV over its Connexion
service. The Connexion service currently offers passengers wireless Internet service. Japan Airlines, ANA, Lufthansa German Airlines, Scandinavian Airlines System and Singapore Airlines are already providing the wireless Internet service aboard their planes.
