LiveTV is the company that provides the in-flight TV service on the PMCO domestic fleet. They are also the company that both PCMO and the new UA have each signed a MoU with to provide in-flight internet connectivity at some level (most recently to all the DirecTV planes). And apparently they are cursed. The latest effort, a Ka-band satellite offering in partnership with ViaSat, is now facing potential delays due to a failed rocket launch on Sunday. The ViaSat folks are saying it is too soon to suggest that the LiveTV implementation timeline is at risk, but the satellite still on the ground months after its initial expected launch schedule and the launch company is currently in a stand down while they figure out what happened yesterday. This could get interesting. A bit more coverage here and here. And, FWIW, UA is the largest committed customer to the LiveTV product which is why I started the thread here. Especially with the announcement yesterday reaffirming the commitment to deploy the product I figured it made sense as a place for the discussion. For folks anxiously awaiting a broader in-flight internet deployment on the UA/CO fleet this could get interesting indeed.
