    In other travel tech news, looks like e-cigarettes are still being sorted.

    Neat idea even if it is low on channel count (especially compared to JetBlue DirectTV and Virgin America Dish offerings). It doesn’t mention it but I assume it is browser based and won’t require an iOS/Android app to work (or flash type app for laptops).

    In any case, while DirectTV on JetBlue used to be a my favorite option, these days, TiVo + kmttg + iPad are my entertainment option of choice today.

    Strangely, I only seem to watch TV Land when I’m flying – “catching up” on The Jeffersons and such. On the rare occasions I plan ahead, I’ll load up a movie – often iTunes, but if TiVo Stream ever supports Android… But more often than not, I’ll simply relax with a Kindle book. And it looks like the powers that be are contemplating allowing Kindles to remain on during take off and landing.

    Nope, they came up with that on their own… From the press release:

    using iPhone®, iPad® and iPod touch®, or most other Internet-ready personal devices

    Hmm, their press release clearly isn’t worded very well, because later on in the same press release, it says:

    Clayton added: “Customers using DISH’s award-winning DISH AnywhereTM and Hopper TransfersTM apps on their iPad can watch all their live TV, DVR recordings and on-demand shows anywhere, anytime via Wi-Fi connection or Hopper Transfers. Now, on Southwest, they can use an iPad to watch free live TV and on-demand shows. It’s a perfect fit.”

    so I can understand the confusion.

    If its one of those Dish HAAAPER commercials, I think I’ll just listen to music.

    I just got a Nook HD but can’t seem to get it to connect to the free Dish Tv on Southwest Airlines. anyone have any thoughts on this matter? BTW-I have the 8G with an 8G microSD card in, Not sure if this has anything to do with not getting it or not.?
