Southwest Airlines has partnered with Dish Network to waive the $5 fee for their in-flight live and on-demand television service. In exchange, Dish Network will show a limited number of advertisements during the programming. Customers will have access to 14 live television channels and about 70 on-demand features. The content can be viewed on laptops, tablets and smartphones.
Movies and non-Dish programming is not included in the promotion, nor is the $8 wi-fi product.
Roughly 60% of the carrier’s fleet is equipped with the service.
