Air Canada became the first Canadian airline to offer customers the chance to follow their preferred sports teams by watching international sporting events in real-time or watching live national news on a flight when it announced today that it has launched Live TV on select aircraft and domestic routes.
Six Canadian English and French channels are currently broadcast live on Air Canada flights as part of the airline’s free and varied inflight entertainment options.
