December 7, 2015 – Global Eagle Entertainment (GEE) and low-cost airline Norwegian Air Shuttle (NAS) have introduced Live TV as a commercial service aboard the airline’s flights from the USA to the Caribbean launched last week. The wi-fi-equipped Norwegian aircraft will feature two TV channels, Bloomberg Television and the NFL Network.
“This live television trial with Global Eagle is a great way to mark the first Norwegian short-haul flights from the US to the Caribbean and a natural extension of our milestone live television trials announced across Europe last month,” said Thomas Ramdahl, chief commercial officer for Norwegian. “Our new routes to the Caribbean now offer more content options, a better overall passenger experience, and exciting sponsorship and advertising opportunities aboard the GEE IFEC platform.”
Walé Adepoju, chief commercial officer for GEE added, “This latest Live TV trial is an innovative collaborative effort between NAS and GEE and a noteworthy milestone as we prepare to deliver the next generation of inflight entertainment and connectivity around the world.”
