DISH has taken several steps over the past year to provide entertainment options for flyers. In July, DISH announced a partnership with Southwest Airlines to provide free access to live TV and on-demand programming. Most recently, DISH began lending iPads to Southwest flyers traveling between select routes. While these offers are unique to Southwest, Hopper customers can enjoy programs while flying on other airlines by transferring programs from their Hopper with Sling to their device via Hopper Transfers. This enables them to view their content during all portions of the flight, not just when Wi-Fi is enabled.

The survey was conducted among 744 adult air travelers 18 or older nationwide. Responses were given online on November 5, 2013.
