Southwest will try out live TV on 5 planes

The airline said Thursday it would offer seven sports and news channels for passengers to watch on their own devices.

Airlines have been expanding in-flight entertainment options such as Internet access to distinguish themselves from other airlines that often sell tickets for about the same price.
