Air Canada today announced the addition of three new Live TV sports channels to its in-flight entertainment (IFE) system.

Just in time for the start of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, Sportsnet ONE and Sportsnet East are available today, while TVA Sports will be available in May, so Air Canada customers can cheer their favourite hockey team onboard select flights.

John Moody, Managing Director, Onboard Product at Air Canada said: “We are extremely excited, as the only Canadian airline with Live TV, to show the Stanley Cup Playoffs onboard.

“Hockey is an integral part of the Canadian identity, so it only makes sense that we offer it in French and English to our customers as part of our extensive in-flight entertainment.

“These new channels further cement our dedication to Canada’s game.

“Our commitment to hockey includes flying all seven Canadian teams, being a jersey sponsor of the Montreal Canadiens, and as official airline of the PWHL.”

Air Canada’s Live TV experience is delivered through a satellite-connected solution, directly to the seat-back screen.
