Norwegian first to offer live TV on Europe flights

Passengers can now watch Bloomberg and Norway’s TV2 News
Low-cost carrier Norwegian has become the first airline to offer live TV on board European flights. Passengers using the free inflight WiFi can now watch Bloomberg Television and Norway’s TV2 News live on the airline’s fleet.
The new service was launched yesterday on a flight from Oslo to Berlin and was developed by the frequent flyer program Norwegian Reward and Norwegian cable television company RiksTV.
Bjørn Kjos, chief executive officer at Norwegian, appeared on board the flight and said that more choice was likely in the future.
“Introducing Bloomberg Television and TV2 News to our passengers opens the door to more content choices and a better overall inflight experience,” he said. “By offering free Wi-Fi combined with complementary live television, we are setting the stage for a passenger experience like no other in the sky.”
