Southwest Airlines And Row 44 Announce Milestones In Wi-Fi Partnership:

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., Jan. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Row 44, the leading provider of inflight Wi-Fi and device-based entertainment for airlines around the world, and its partner Southwest Airlines announced today that the Row 44 inflight entertainment and connectivity service, which includes high-speed Internet, shopping, destination services, and real-time flight map with updates, has been installed on 400 Southwest aircraft.   In addition, Southwest offers Row 44's live television service across all Wi-Fi equipped aircraft. 

"The 400 th installation of broadband capabilities on our fleet is a particularly significant milestone for Southwest and our partner Row 44," said Dave Ridley, Southwest Airlines' Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer.  "Southwest was the first U.S. carrier to test satellite-delivered broadband Internet access on multiple aircraft. We have found the strength of satellite service has allowed us to deliver very high bandwidth for Internet users and provide our inflight entertainment via the addition of live television."

Now available on Southwest aircraft installed with Wi-Fi, the live television service features nine channels of live news and sports, which includes NBC Sports, NFL Network, NFL Red Zone, MLB, MSNBC, CNBC, Fox News, Fox Business News and FOX-NYC.  Passengers with Wi-Fi-enabled devices can stream the live television service.  Importantly, the Row 44 live television service utilizes a distinct band transmitted to the aircraft, and therefore does not interfere with Internet connectivity.

"Our 400 th installation on Southwest is a notable achievement for Row 44, and coupled with a growing list of services they entrust us to deliver to their Customers makes it even more significant," said Row 44's Chief Executive Officer John LaValle.  "As our partnership with Southwest continues to thrive, Row 44 remains committed to innovating in the ways that are meaningful to Southwest and their passengers' inflight entertainment experience."

"We look forward to having the most robust inflight entertainment platform in the sky," added Ridley."
