You’ll soon be able to get live ballgames on your flight

Got a press release this morning that will make frequent travelers happy:

Row 44, Inc., provider of the world’s leading In-Flight Broadband Entertainment Platform, is partnering with MLB Advanced Media, the interactive media and Internet company of Major League Baseball, to deliver live streaming video and audio broadcasts, in-flight, to passengers’ smart phones, laptops, tablets and other Wi-Fi enabled devices.

The good news: beers on a flight are, last I checked, still cheaper than beers in a ballpark.  Bad news: I’m guessing the cost to access this feature will be greater than bleacher seats at the majority of the ballparks.

But hey, it beats watching some bad Sandra Bullock movie, doesn’t it?
