Row 44 is trying to keep up with what Gogo is doing, but with only one US customer and around 250 Southwest a/c outfitted with WiFi (Gogo is installed on over 1500 a/c across multiple airlines.), they're basically treading water. I've not heard too many good reviews regarding Row 44's product as installed on Southwest either, which could be why some airlines that tested Row 44 went with Gogo instead. Gogo is about to add a satellite-based option and Delta recently announced they'll be adding that to their international fleet (Some of their international a/c have it, but mainly because some of those a/c operate domestically between JFK and LAX and JFK and SFO in competition with United and their p.s. flights and American's Flagship flights.) so the entire Delta Airlines mainline fleet will offer WiFi in the near future (in addition to the two class Delta Connection a/c).

Delta and American have been testing streaming content via Gogo called Gogo Vision that is customized to those airlines. It's the way that inflight entertainment is likely to be headed as more and more folks have some sort of WiFi enabled device that would allow them to connect to the system.

That's it on the channels they are offering?? Bleh.

Like the guy that commented on the article, I hope headsets will be enforced, for everyone's comfort.
