Jet Blue, in partnership with MLBAM, the interactive media and Internet company of Major League Baseball, is bringing the game to its planes for free via in-flight access to sports streaming service MLB.TV.
The agreement brings free, Internet streaming of live regular season baseball games to passengers aboard Jet Blue in the contiguous U.S. and all Fly-Fi equipped aircraft.
MLB.TV, which is typically a subscription service, offers more than 2,500 live and archived games on-demand per season.
"Launching MLB.TV is a home run for our customers who are getting more free entertainment than ever included in their JetBlue flights," says Jamie Perry, vice president, brand and product development, Jet Blue. "Whether it's sports, movies, television, music, news or e-books, we're offering endless entertainment options across multiple screens that goes far away from the drop-down televisions of yesterday that many airlines still serve to customers."
