Closed Captioning Now Available for Live TV on Flights

LiveTV has announced that closed captioning is now available for live television content onboard airplanes. This new system upgrade will provide inflight entertainment for passengers with hearing disabilities. It’s also a major part of LiveTV’s goal for an “At Home in the Air” experience for all of its users.

The new enhancement will first be featured on all LTV3-equipped Boeing 737NG aircraft operated by Continental Airlines. Each customer will be in control of the feature, while searching through the 100+ channels of DIRECTV-provided satellite television available.

LiveTV was founded in Melbourne, Florida in 1998. It is one of the world’s leading providers of live in-flight entertainment for commercial airlines. There are world-wide maintenance and installation locations to support more than 700 aircraft and some of its other customers include JetBlue, Frontier and AirTran.
