Passengers flying ANA will be able to watch several live programs, including Japanese sports and news. In addition to exclusive live television, ANA’s new experience also offers high-speed connectivity. Passengers will be able to use their Personal Electronic Devices (PED) to access email, use social media networks, and browse the Internet, as well as access content that can be wirelessly streamed to mobile devices.
“From the beginning, our goal was to deliver an integrated and connected experience that keeps passengers immersed and engaged in ANA’s in-flight experience. The broadband Wi-Fi and unique live television content is a first for Japan,” said Paul Margis, president and CEO of Panasonic Avionics.
