WESTLAKE VILLAGE, California, March 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
- Row 44 Equips 250th Commercial Aircraft with its Satellite-Based Broadband Entertainment Platform; Now Operating Commercially Across Three Continents
Row 44, Inc., provider of the world's leading In-Flight Broadband Entertainment Platform, announced today that it has installed its broadband entertainment solution on 250 planes for the company's commercial airline partners in North America, Europe and Africa. This makes Row 44's solution the only satellite-based airborne broadband operating for airlines on these three continents.
Row 44 is currently equipping several planes each week and has orders to install its broadband solution aboard hundreds more aircraft.
This announcement comes just prior to Row 44's debut of several new broadband entertainment services offered by its airline partners - services including live streaming IPTV, on-demand movies and television episodes, and bookable destination services in cities around the world. Upon those launches, Row 44's airline partners will be the only airlines in the world offering live IPTV television of major networks streamed to their passengers' own Wi-Fi enabled devices.
"Installing our 250th plane for airlines on three continents clearly establishes Row 44 as the global leader in in-flight broadband entertainment," said Howard Lefkowitz, Row 44's Chief Commercial Officer. "Airlines and their passengers are demanding ever-more bandwidth and broadband services in-flight - from connectivity, to a selection of live television channels, to a library of on-demand movies and TV shows, and more. Row 44's satellite-based broadband entertainment platform is uniquely positioned to accomplish this. Although several in-flight broadband providers claim to be 'developing' global solutions, Row 44 has actually done it. We look forward to continuing to work with innovative airlines around the world to create an outstanding broadband experience for every air traveler."
