    Southwest Airlines plans to sell live television service on five planes and expand it to more aircraft by mid-July.
    The airline said Thursday that it would offer seven sports and news channels for passengers to watch on their own devices.
    Southwest said it will test prices from $3 to $8 during a trial period. Passengers will need a Wi-Fi-enabled device such as a smartphone, tablet or laptop computer.

    "The Southwest channels: NBC Sports, MLB (Major League Baseball), NFL Network, CNBC, MSNBC, Fox News and Fox Business News."

    I thought they were going to offer news channels, but they seem to really only be offering channels with the word "news" in their names. Not going to pay for that... And I'm not interested in sports.
