Flying Southwest with your iPad? Watch live TV for free via Dish Network

“Next time you’re on a flight and the captain signals that it’s the OK to resume using your mobile device, you may be able to pull up free live TV, if you’re on a Wi-Fi Southwest Airlines flight,” Joan E. Solsman reports for CNET.

“The carrier and Dish have joined up to offer passengers access to live TV and up to 75 on-demand shows on the airline’s more than 400 Wi-Fi-enabled aircraft,” Solsman reports. “Dish’s competitor DirecTV has long had a partnership with JetBlue, providing its own satellite service in seat backs. JetBlue has also said it would launch fast free in-flight Wi-Fi this year.”
