    Here's the new line up for flights with Personal Television's in the seat back

    Delta is updating the satellite TV channels this month. These are the new channels. I am trying to find the old one too but I know a few channels are gone such as HGTV, Bravo etc.)

    More news options but at the cost of some other channels.

    1- NBC
    2- CNBC
    3- CNN
    4- Comedy Central
    5- Discovery
    6- Nick
    7- Cartoon Network
    8- Univision
    9- FoxNews
    10- FX
    11- Fox
    12- CBS
    13- TBS
    14- TNT
    15- ESPN
    16- AMC
    17- HLN
    18- MSNBC

    While there are more news channels, I also think there are more entertainment channels. I think the addition of CBS and Fox for sports (most notably the NFL) is the biggest positive.

    The channel lineup is fine with me. Fox, CBS, TBS, and TNT are quality entertainment channels.

    Has anyone been on a flight and been on a channel like Fox when local news is on? What city does it show?

    Well, CNN is Atlanta and somewhat ATL-centric (just like DL), especially in their coverage of the weather and airports.

    No, it's my local station so I like it. Why, what would you prefer?

    I'll miss Food Network. Then again, it seems like every time I flipped it on, there was Rachel Ray....

    I don't understand the point at all. CNN happens to be in Atlanta with no connection to Delta at all.

    So, why don't you like it that NBC is NYC? What city should it be? They gotta pick one. AND it has to be one that isn't a spot beam on the satellite and the NYC stations are not on a spot beam because people without any local channels are allowed to get those.
