MLB.TV Joins The Mile-High Club
You can now watch baseball at 35,000 feet. If you are flying JetBlue, that is.
From the announcement:
NEW YORK, NY–(Marketwired – July 09, 2015) – JetBlue (NASDAQ: JBLU) today announced a new partnership with MLBAM, the interactive media and internet company of Major League Baseball, that will give JetBlue customers free in-flight access to MLB.TV – the #1 live streaming sports service – on their laptops and supported smartphones and tablets through the MLB.com At Bat mobile app. The agreement brings free, Internet streaming of live Regular Season baseball games 35,000 feet in the sky for the first time ever, and adds to JetBlue’s expanding catalog of onboard entertainment delivered over Fly-Fi, the industry’s fastest complimentary broadband Internet.
Of course, MLB.TV works sporadically at best my home – which is 1 foot above sea level – even though I have super fast Internet service at my home that allows me to stream movies and TV shows with no problems at all.
