[Avionics Today 08-11-2016] Virgin Atlantic has partnered with Panasonic Avionics and IMG so that customers travelling with Virgin Atlantic this summer will be able to tune in to live television onboard its Boeing 787 Dreamliner. Initially three channels will be available: Sport 24, BBC News and CNN International.

Virgin Atlantic customers will be able to tune in to live TV via their seat-back screen or via their own devices using the onboard Wi-Fi, at no extra cost. The service is being rolled out to the 787 Dreamliners now, and all 13 aircraft will be fully equipped by the end of the year.
