Middle East Airlines-Air Liban (MEA) has started a two-month trial of Panasonic Avionics’ in-flight Live Television service.

The service was rolled out on MEA’s fleet of nine Airbus A321neoLR aircraft on October 1, helping passengers to Never Miss A Moment with a wide range of premium news and live sporting events.

Panasonic Avionics’ Live Television service connects passengers to on-the-ground entertainment from the comfort of their seats. The integrated service enables passengers to watch news channels including the BBC World and CNN International, along with live sporting action in partnership with Sport 24.

Sport 24 is provided by Panasonic Avionics and is the world’s only live in-flight sports platform. It broadcasts 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, connecting airline passengers to over 16 hours of premium live content from over 30 different sports leagues.

MEA’s customers will be able to enjoy all the live action from the world’s top sporting events, including the NFL, NBA, NHL, all four Tennis Grand Slams, all four Golf Majors, the NRL, the UEFA Champions League, English Premier League, Bundesliga, and more.

The Live Television service onboard MEA’s aircraft will be powered by Panasonic Avionics’ in-flight connectivity services, and broadcast through its eX1 in-flight entertainment platform, both of which were launched on the airline’s A321neoLR fleet in 2020.

Panasonic Avionics Corporation Vice President of Digital Solutions Andrew Mohr said: “We are delighted to extend our partnership with Middle East Airlines and to enhance the in-flight experience they provide by bringing live news and the world’s best sporting action to their passengers.”

MEA Head of In-flight Services Houssam Moghrabi said: “The trial of Panasonic Avionics' Live Television service is a natural step following the installation of their state-of-the-art in-flight entertainment and connectivity systems last year, which has been well received by our passengers.”
