Gulf Air offers live TV and Internet – a world’s first

We do know that you can access the Internet via Wi-Fi while you’re on your way halfway across the world in a comfortable plane seat (assuming you’re on Business Class, of course), but how many of you wished that you need not subject yourself to the in-flight entertainment system but settle for live TV instead? Gulf Air fulfills that need, where they have just rolled out the first aircraft in the world that offers live TV as well as Internet in-flight on their A330-200 fleet.

Busy executives will definitely welcome such integration in terms of connectivity and entertainment, where the Skyhub as Gulf Air calls it, is supported by Aeromobile and created in partnership with Panasonic Global Communications. This means you can continue to update your Facebook status as well as Twitter account on how the food and service is like, live – for the 10 people in your social circle who care. Of course, this kind of service is not free (yet, although it might be a couple of decades down the road), where it will cost $16 each hour. Just make sure you carry a credit card or travel vouchers that accompany the ticket’s purchase if you want to take advantage of this new service.
