BA to show “Soccer AM” and Premier League highlights on board long-haul aircraft

British Airways to show Sky Sports’ popular weekly Soccer AM on some of its long-haul flights from 19 August 2014.

The airline will also show weekly highlights of Premier League games from the 2014/2015 season of the Barclays Premier League.

Furthermore, from September, the airline will also show Red Bull’s archives of sport programming ranging from freestyle moto-cross and mountain biking, to surfing and underground cave explorations.

BA say the above programming will be on “some” long-haul flights. We infer this is likely to mean Airbus A380, Boeing 787, Boeing 777-300 and some Boeing 777 aircraft which have the airline’s more advanced Thales in flight entertainment system.
